From the people who brought you Hillbillies In Hell…
Smooth countrypolitan sides of Doom, Apocalyptic Shag-Cowpokes, anti-Vietnam War Freak-Folkies, small-town Hayseed-Vignettes, ambulance-chasing Bluegrass, red-baiting exploitation-jangle-Folk-Pop and wigged-out Nashville space-age Instrumentals – you’ll hear all that and much more on this extraordinary LP…
Charting the tumultuous decade of 1960-1970, ‘Age Of Worry’ presents 18 somewhat nervous and seldom-heard oddities, obscurities and treasures from the depths of the Monument Records vault. Sometimes outrageous, sometimes sublime – listen to Vern Stovall lament the maudlin fate of ‘Code Alarm 7’, Rusty Draper on tortured suburban ennui and Captain Ty Herrington on emasculated masculinity.
A spellbinding disc of Country Pop, Bluegrass, Folk and Novelty sides all touched in one way or another by Cold War tension and the changing tides of 1960s society.
