Russ Nasset and the Revelators / Press

“Russ is in great vocal form, singing in his world-weary, river-bottom baritone about lost loves, jealousy, and the too-much-drinkin’, too-much-drivin’ life on the road. It’s perfect.”

“Graced throughout by Nasset's rough-edged, slightly adenoidal voice, and couched in the rolling rhythms of longtime drummer Kenny Field and bassist Tim Martin, "Blue Highway" cruises through a lifetime of Nasset's memories, all framed by the sun-drenched horizons of his beloved home state.”

“When a country album's done right, you know it, and this is definitely one for the jukebox.”

“You have your barn-burnin’ instrumental, of course. The Nassets tear it up on “Road Rage,” and the rock-solid drums are right in there, but not overpowering.”

“The country shuffle “I Need a Little Time to Myself” has steamin’ leads from Sam (who seems to have learned pretty well from the old man) and terrific wap-wappin’ drum work from Field.”

“The 13 original numbers (12 by Russ and one by Sam) span the range of rock styles with great Fender guitar sounds providing the bedrock.”

“The record aptly evokes the relaxed and upbeat vibe that the band brings to its live shows.”

“Blue Highway is replete with Russ Nasset's usual trademarks: catchy tunes and white-hot guitar pickin’.”

“The album goes from heartbreak ("Grey Life"), to cynicism ("I Hope I Never Fall in Love Again"), to falling in love ("Somebody Steals Your Heart"), with the witty ease of big timers like George Jones and Dwight Yoakam. That's good stuff.”

“The music is framed by the four-square formulas of old-school honky-tonk and country music.”

“All the songs here are smartly written originals, with tight production, beautiful pedal steel, Russ' perfectly twangy vocals and knockout solos from Russ' son, Sam Nasset, who is nothing short of a guitar ace.”

“Featuring a dozen of Nasset's original tunes (plus one written by his son, guitarist Sam Nasset), the record serves as the finest document yet of one of the Northwest's finest country-blues acts.”
