An even mix of that hardcore, steel guitar heavy, Texas dancehall music & the electric twang of the Bakersfield Sound describes this album pretty well… but it’s the lyrically rich, Traditional Country ballads that will turn you into an instant fan.
The record that really woke the rest of the world up to Bob Manning and The Honky Tonk Roadshow was “Just What I Wanted” a couple of years ago. With hypnotic walking basslines, heaps of steel guitar, late-night blues- inspired guitar licks, a cinematic quality, and a laidback sound, as well as a lived-in gruffness to his vocals, Bob Manning has taken all his influences and distilled them into an instantly recognizable & unmistakable sound of his own.
