Recording information: Mountain Madness Studio, Tahoe City, CA.
In the late '70s, Hoyt Axton founded Jeremiah Records to release his new albums, and this import two-fer reissues the label's first two offerings. The first, A Rusty Old Halo, takes its name from Axton's rocking remake of a song recorded decades earlier by the Maddox Brothers & Rose. That and "Della and the Dealer," the latter of which Axton performed on the television sitcom WKRP, were Top 20 country hits. Two other singles from this quality album, "Wild Bull Rider" and "Evangelina," also entered the country Top 40. Where Did the Money Go? from 1980 was much less successful, and the material is accordingly more uneven. A scarcity of Axton originals and a few outright clunkers are two of the problems with the album, which is better appreciated in tandem with A Rusty Old Halo than alone. ~ Greg Adams
