New Review!!! - March 5, 2011

Hey folks,
We just received a great review for Cocktails & Wishful Thinking from our friends at Blue Suede News! Here it is:

Lisa & Her Kin enlisted Deke Dickerson to produce their latest CD, and Deke crops up on backing vocals and tambourine a bit as well. But even better news yet is that brother Chris is here on bass, and also contributing a couple of songs! We first saw Chris as part of Portland's Rockin' Razorbacks, but he spent many years of the last couple of decades working out of Austin. In case you weren't aware, the group also has Rusty Blake on pedal steel- he also plays guitar with The Lucky Stars, Rusty showcases on his own “Sawin On The Steel”, and Ian Miller shines as well. With a big brother like Chris, Ian Miller had a head start and has become a truly excellent Telecaster picker, and he also contributed a song to this fine Honky Tonk silver platter. Lisa wrote six of the tunes and the covers come from such sources as “Little Pink Mack” and Dolly Parton's first record “Puppy Love”. And Deke's old partner Dave Stuckey sings the duet on “Hog Tied Over You”. Solid Honky Tonk fare with such titles as “Tell It To The Jukebox”, “Wine Wine Wine” and 'Serve Me Up A Heartache”. Ian gets to shine on the final tune Spanish Flea”, one last cover before the lights go out, or you hit the replay button!
