All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
As the guitarist in Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, Bill Kirchen was one of the pioneers of roots rock and western swing in the early '70s and, ever since, he's carried the torch, ripping it up whenever he could've just as easily chosen to lay back. On Seeds & Stems, his 2013 album, he revisits many songs he's played often over the years, once again cutting "Hot Rod Lincoln," but also the title track, "Too Much Fun," and Dylan's "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry."

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
As the guitarist in Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, Bill Kirchen was one of the pioneers of roots rock and western swing in the early '70s and, ever since, he's carried the torch, ripping it up whenever he could've just as easily chosen to lay back.
