Great American Taxi: Reckless Habits

Posted in Great American Taxi on March 22, 2010 by AmericanaPulse

I’ve had another CD review published over at the Country Standard Time website. This time it’s the new release from Leftover Salmon alum Vince Herman and his current project Great American Taxi.

Great American Taxi’s new release Reckless Habits has just been released on Thirty Tigers Records, and you can read my review of the album by following this link.
Here’s one tune from the album to give you a little taste of the sound… although this one is really impossible to sum up with just one song. “Unpromised Land” is probably my favorite song on the album. It’s not FCC friendly, however, so I’ll never be able to play it on the radio. That’s why I’m sharing it with you here. I like to think of it as a cross between moe. and Sam Bush.
