After being fired from the Allman Brothers Band in , a band he was a founding member of in the late '60s, Dickey Betts dealt with his pain, anger, and loss by putting together a new band, hitting the road, and issuing a new album only a few months after the dirty deed. Stinging his way through the raucous choruses, Betts reveals he's lost none of his fire nor his impeccable taste as he slips jazz chords, rock pyrotechnics, and shimmering Chicago blues lines into the mix, driving a band whose Hammond B-3 and saxophone punch courtesy of Matt Zeiner and Kris Jensen , respectively is fierce. The title track is a throwaway lyrically, but musically it stomps the tar out of anything Brian Setzer tries to accomplish with raw American swing. Betts churns up the tempo and the volume and leaves the production out of the track, preferring an edgy, slippery groove. Betts also proves he can still write a gorgeous country song in "Tombstone Eyes," with its shimmering acoustic guitars and B-3 crescendos. The balladry is simple but the emotion is complex.

The song is an appeal for peace and brotherhood, presenting the polarity of love versus fear, and the choice to be made between them. The song was originally recorded as "Let's Get Together" by the Kingston Trio in a live performance in March that was released on June 1, , on their album Back in Town. The Kingston Trio often performed it live. A pre-Byrds David Crosby recorded "Get Together" around the same time as the Trio, but possibly a few weeks later, since the band arrangement includes the riff from the Beatles ' version of " Twist and Shout ", released earlier in Britain but not in the United States until April. It was produced by Jim Dickson as a four-song demo that Crosby recorded before joining the Byrds.
December 5, By Natalie. Today was a sweet day. Today, we prepped and served lunch at the Ronald McDonald House. We tossed salad and baked cookies and watched brave souls feed their bodies and hopefully their hearts.
