The Russians Are Coming" is an inconsequential movie theme; and "Truck Drivin' Man" is an early indication of Parsons' country-rock direction. Side two has some Parsons-related oddities, the most interesting of which is Peter Fonda's (!) languid pop rendition of the Gram-penned "November Nights. There are also a couple of tracks (Fred Neil's "You Don't Miss Your Water" and Steve Young's "That's How Strong My Love Is") on which Parsons appeared as a session musician.

While I think this pressing may have been made from cruddy old masters I don't know for sure if the originals are any better; you'll have to see that for yourself. Anyway, all four tracks are a lot of fun. I really recommend them. Reply Notify me Helpful.
