J.W.W. & the ProspectorsIt's High Past Time (Southbound Trail)
Few bands keep the Western swing banner flying high, but J.W.W. & the Prospectors wave that flag with nimble style. Their first full-length brings to mind traditional voices such as Tex Williams while also possessing the rebellious nature of revivalists like Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen. A Moon Mullican cover and longtime Big Sandy drummer Bobby Trimble augment the local septet's bona fides.
