|phil garvin||Chuck Maultsby
thank goodness my old cassettes of the 5 albums were about worn out.In the early 80’s at some Tucson bar I seen Chuck on a break and asked him if they knew any David Allen Coe tunes.He said “NO” but we should tho.Then years later I find this video on My Space with Chuck playing the end of “you never even called me by my name”Thanks for taking a break from fishin’ Chuck.Or at least it was long enough to realize that folks still love these songs.I’m probably the only person in Iowa who has all the records !!
|Jenny||Excellent CD!!! Great dancin’ music
It’s great to hear these songs again. What’s great about this band -is everything, the musicians, the vocals, the tunes and the lyrics. The live cuts on the “Best and Worst” remind me of the great times when Chuck Wagon and the Wheels would pack the Olympic in Boulder, Colorado!
EXCELLENT! I’d still love to see Chuck release each of their old albums on CD, especially Red Hot Women and Ice Cold Beer!
|Baja Arizona||Finally on CD, Tucson’s GREAT Western Swing band
The great thing about Chuck Wagon and The Wheels (these guys, the original band–not the fakers who did “Off The Top Rope”) is that they had fun songs that were backed up with great Western Swing musicianship. This band owned Tucson and mad a big name for themselves in the West and Southwest.
This is a nice cross section of their music. It’s all the things I like about Asleep At The Wheel and Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen…great music, clever lyrics, and it really does swing. A good Chuck Wagon and The Wheels retrospectives hits their Western Swing, Country Rock, and clever lyrics and this touches on all of it. These guys still sound great today nearly 30 years after they rolled in and lit up Tucson for over half a decade. This is one of two “best of” CDs that picked up songs from their five studio albums and rumor has it there’s a live release in the works.
|Raymond||I was hoping it could be possible,amen
A good friend on the internet sent me an email which said “Guess What I Found?” And then I ordered the CD. It brought back many happy memories for me and the guys at work. Good things never die, just go away for awhile, then come back to surprize us. Ray from Tucson,AZ
|blair||Keep em coming!
Chuck did it again! Between the 2 cd’s he has almost all of the great Chuck Wagon and the Wheels songs. Chuck, isn’t it about time for a reunion show? There’s enough of us that remember “the Wheels” . Dig into the vault and come up with some more treasures!
|Rick Carvao||Awesome Cd
It was great listening to the old Chuck Wagon And The Wheels on cd. You should release the original albums on cd.
|kurt klosiewski||24 originals
I moved to Tucson,from Milwaukee 4 years ago.
Since then I have come to regret that I was not born here. Then through a friend I learned about Chuck and his wagon wheels. Now I really regret not being born here and experiencing the hey day of this group. How great it must have been to see these guys when they started their career in Tucson. All I can do now is go see them when they do play locally (which isn’t enough!) and play their CD’s all the time! I can’t get enough of these guy’s !! See ya Sept 13th at the La Gitana Cantina Chuck,can’t wait Kurt
|This CD brings it ALL back!
What a great CD! It’s about time we have all our favorites on CD. This and the other CD(worst of) makes me feel like I’m in college again (except there is no hangover included in the CD). Chuck Wagon for president!
|Amy||Chuck Wagon 24 originals
LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT. Takes me back to the early 80’s I was young, single and totally went nuts when the band would come to Phoenix. Sure wish they would put their albums on cd’s. Thanks for the laughs and memories.
