It's Good To Be Lonesome sounds exactly like what I thought it would after looking at the album cover, and it's great. The Lonesome Billies have produced a very solid country album in the vein of Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. Very classic sound, this album makes me want to pack up my belongings in a bandana and take to the open road for adventure. It also makes me wish I liked whiskey. "The Day I Lost My Life" (4) is an adventure from start to finish with great Ob-la-di Ob-la-da honky tonk piano, whereas "Oh My Friend" (1) and "Y'all Never Came Out West" (10) have got great jaunty guitar suitable for a square dance. "Lawman" (5) has a superb harmonica led opener.
