  • Driving is like being asleep: On a long trip, time and space seem to become a dream-like projection of your own consciousness. That's why being asleep at the wheel can actually provide great insight into the nature of reality. See: INDOLENT.

It's a match made in Western Swing heaven as Ray Benson & Asleep at the Wheel team up with famed Texas Playboy Leon Rausch for their first-ever recording together. Rausch first joined Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys in 1958, was featured in the historic 1973 recording session with Wills called 'For the Last Time' and has gone on to lead bands such as 'Bob Wills' Original Texas Playboys' and 'The Playboys II.' At age 83, Rausch is one of the few Texas Playboys still performing. Asleep at the Wheel have been called 'the post-modern kings of Western Swing,' forming in 1970 in Paw Paw, West Virginia and eventually settling in Austin, TX in 1973. Celebrating forty years of continuous touring and recording, Ray Benson and his ensemble (over 100 former members and counting) have received nine GRAMMY (R) Awards and extended the legacy and vitality of a music first popularized by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys.

Ray Benson's Asleep At The Wheel deserve admiration for keeping alive the sounds of western swing, but with a rhythm section that's usually straight-up-and-down stiff, The Wheel's recordings mainly just leave you craving their inspirations. The 18-song Tribute overcomes this problem by loading up on singers who do their best to swing even when the band doesn't. George Strait, doing "Big Balls In Cowtown," is a natural, of course, as are the offerings from Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Lyle Lovett and Dolly Parton. Even Garth Brooks' go at "Deep Water," who mimics Strait to perfection here, is a pleasant surprise. --David Cantwell
