Drivin' n' Cryin' are a critically acclaimed real "rock/folk/alt-country/punk/jam" band from Atlanta, GA. Formed in 1985 in the fertile college rock scene of middle Georgia, they first achieved commercial success in 1991 with the Fly Me Courageous album which went gold,. Leader Kevn Kinney decided back in 2012 to abandon the idea of recording albums in favor of smaller EP's, each with 5-6 songs on them. The results were Songs From the Laundromat (2012); Songs About Cars, Space & the Ramones (2012); Songs From the Psychedelic Time Clock (2013); and Songs For the Turntable (2014). Now, they've put together a 10-song distillation of these releases called Best of Songs. And, in typical retro form, it's only available on vinyl, with the album cover resembling a classic K-tel record. Side one opens with the driving "Hot Wheels," one of the catchiest tracks the band has ever laid down, while "Turn" is an excellent midtempo rocker. It wouldn't be a Drivin N Cryin record without diversity, with the moody "Strangers" and the Skynyrd-esque "Roll Away the Song" rounding out the first side. Side two blasts off with the one-two punch of "Dirty" and "Ain't Waitin' on Tomorrow," showing that these veterans haven't lost their ability to kick ass. They revisit their roots with the gentle ode to their friends "REM," while "The Little Record Store Around the Corner" pays homage to the 13th Floor Elevators, with a descending bass line. The record ends with the psychedelic instrumental "Space Eyes."
