Song Notes: When this came out, this was the most controversial and most hated Ween album. They recorded an album with a bunch of classic Nashville session men (including Charlie McCoy and The Jordanaires!), because Ween loved old country. (The album, 12 Golden Country Greats had only 10 songs on it; this led people to think that the title was a dig at Country music, by being short 2 songs—this was not the case; the title actually referred to the 12 golden country greats who played on the record). Unfortunately, the label's choice of this song for the teaser single didn't help matters at all, as it was the only straight-novelty song on the record. So, people buying the record based off of this song were disappointed to get a real country record, and anyone who might have been into getting a real country record would have been scared off by this single. This is the least like anything else on the CD, but it is very good. It's one of my favorite Ween albums, actually, and I've read that it's at least Dean Ween's favorite, if not both his and Gene's, and finally, critical and fan opinion of this album has come around, after people started to Get It. It really is a great record; almost any of the other tracks could fit right in on a non-novelty, straight-country record... and be one of the stand-out-quality tracks. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
