Level of familiarity before listening
What I expected
More psychedelic country.
What it was actually like
“Gypsy Cowboy” was definitely less psychedelic country than “Home, Home on the Road” and “Powerglide,” and more country, and I guess I didn’t like it quite as much as those, but I did still like it.
Groupie, Superman and Long Black Veil were all pretty standard country songs, and they were fine, but not what I’d get excited to hear.
On the other hand, Sutter’s Mill and Death and Destruction were far more representative of the psychedelic country style that I expected from other NRPS records.
I liked Whiskey, which was pretty catchy, and did I hear some yodeling in Linda?
4/5: would listen again
