Diesel Guns and Rust-Alex Flanigan (Gene Boy/Jerry Duncan)

Two things. I’ve always had the hots for girls named Alex (excepting Glen Close in Fatal Attraction). And, I’m a sucker for killer intros, and this’s got one. The lyric is one’a them mini-movies. It’s about three brothers from different mothers who’ve made some very bad choices and are on the run across the deep south. The problem I hear is the record’s mixed in such a way as to obscure a lot of the lyric. Us Country folks just don’t much like it when we listen to a song and don’t get all the words that’s bein’ sung. The music’s very good. But it’s too high and por’ Alex’s earthy voice gets buried ‘neath it.
