How many of y’all love The Flying Burrito Brothers’ Gilded Palace of Sin or The Byrd’s Sweetheart of the Rodeo? How about Nashville Skyline? Despite the fact that I was alive during the great California country-rock movement of the early to late ’70s, my exposure to this music was limited to The Eagles, whose music was friggin’ everywhere. I didn’t know about the really good stuff until I was an adult and, ironically enough, no longer living in Southern California. Sunset Canyoneers‘ new album sounds plucked from that era, where the Malibu surf culture started a relatively short love affair with pedal steel guitars, Nudie suits and a style of country music that still possessed plenty of rock and roll attitude.
