A lot of muscial territory gets covered [in White's new disc]. There's a cowboy number with some Sons of the Pioneers-style wordless harmonies, a powerful story-song called Good Old Times, and even a humorous offering to close the collection. The latter, one of only two tracks not written by White, is Look at Granny Run, Run, the tale of a newly randy grandpa and his appalled and fleeing wife. Penned by rock 'n' roll icons Jerry Ragovoy and Mort Shuman. ... The other non-original is I Didn't Want to Boogie written by drummer Jerry Allison [of the Crickets]. A wry and rueful tune about hesitating when you should be acting, it was sent to White by Allison himself.|
