I like both kinds of music - fuzztone Country AND fuzztone Western!

"Call me nuts, but I find extraordinarily endearing the improbable blend of country music traditionalism and tastefully restrained space-age guitar pyrotechnics that can be heard in these tunes." Yes, friends, the fine folks at WFMU are back with the long-awaited 2nd installment of the tasty and wonderful Country Fuzz Spectacular!

Part one of the Country Fuzz Spectacular appeared one of the links in this Mefi post by Sleepy Pete, from 2007.

Major points for distinguishing fuzztone from distortion.

But it's not Western, it's Southern. So it should have been called Peach Fuzz. That is all.

"Sitar Pickin' Man" was the highlight for me.

There has been a lot of country on the charts this year that sounds an awful like Rock and Roll--and though this never really charted, I keep thinking there must have been a history or a precedent, and that there was nothing new.

This is like the ur-Eric Church, and it proves my suspicions.
Thanks so much
