Junior Brown

The only problem with Junior Brown's swell recent release, "Volume Ten," is that with just six songs, it's way too short. Brown's in fine form as usual, making amazing lead and steel guitar licks sound easy as pie, and singing like the reincarnation of the great Ernest Tubb -- only hipper, better! And Junior's crafting funny new songs as only he can, sometimes with important social messages. Check out the timely and too-true, "Hang Up and Drive," an instant honky-tonk classic about cell phones on the highway. The man's a hoot, and a treasure. Tom Surowicz
