Consumer Guide Reviews:

Live at the Wheeling Truck Drivers Jamboree [Capitol, 1973]
In which a rangy baritone with a patch over one eye regales thousands of truckers with their own mythology. Sociologists will note that his rebel persona embraces lots of sex and several blues. Skeptical waitresses will guess that his "Sixty Minute Man" starts counting at coffee and ends at bye. Skeptical rock and rollers will wonder about his vocal resonance and his sense of rhythm. And Americana fans will dig it. B
