2xLP Red & Blue Vinyl Twang reigned, the shitkickers kicked shit, and the vaguely western-sounding guitar records piled up.

Country-rock became "the dominant American rock style of the 1970s," as Peter Doggett's comprehensive Are You Ready for the Country put it much later.

Wayfaring Strangers: Cosmic American Music picks up and dusts off golden ingots from the dollar-bin detritus of that domination, to reconstruct events as seen from the genre's real Wild West - America's one-off private press label substructure.
