Jim Bachmann, a country-styled man about town whose a fixture at Tempe's Yucca Tap Room. Bachmann once did a Sun Session cover of Alan Jackson's "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow" which I still regard among the best we've done. Bachmann has a great voice and writes simple, classic country songs about drinking, carousing and drinking. As he writes in the linear notes self-titled debut is "essentially a homemade record" and it sounds like it, with simple arrangements and lo-fi recording.
