Singer-guitarist Deke Dickerson's 1998 debut (Number One Hit Record!) was a well-focused mix of rockabilly, Western swing, and R&B. On this sophomore outing, he breezes through oldies like "Let the Good Times Roll" and "So Long I'm Gone." Among his first-rate originals are "I'm a Wreck," the witty "I Think You Gotta Pay for That" (a duet with ex-Big Sandy pianist Carl "Sonny" Leyland), and the plaintive, dramatic "I Gave My Heart Before." Dickerson's fearsome guitar virtuosity drives the instrumentals "Tropical Island Boogie Serenade" and "Rockin' Gypsy." Less impressive is his tame spin on Johnny Horton's "Mean Son of a Gun," and R&B legend Hadda Brooks's talents are utterly wasted on "You're My Cadillac." But the real problem here isn't musical; it's Dickerson's self-indulgent obsession with campy in jokes. While a smart blend of music and humor is one thing, the silly introduction, inane song parodies (including one of the Beverly Hillbillies closing theme), and ending sound bites all get old rather quickly. --Rich Kienzle
