It's hard to tell if it was the new guys or just the direction the band was headed, but most of the novelty wore off the Kentucky Headhunters by the group's third album. New lead singer Mark Orr replaced Richard Phelps's backwoods country voice with a Southern rock wail; Anthony Kenney (cousin to drummer Fred Young and guitarist Richard Young) took Doug Phelps's place on bass. The original songs aren't as idiosyncratic as the ones on Pickin' on Nashville or Electric Barnyard, and the Headhunters continue to cover Bill Monroe, this time with "Blue Moon of Kentucky." Covers of Carl Perkins ("Dixiefried") and the Lovin' Spoonful ("My Gal") are less obvious. The Headhunters started as a hard rock country band, a novel idea; here, they've devolved into a redneck boogie group. ~ Brian Mansfield
