John Miller and His Country Casuals "One Excuse Too Many" (Shoeshine 2003)

From Americana UK Reviews:

" "One Excuse Too Many" strikes me as the kind of half-hearted and watered down honk-tonkery that passes for country music in Scottish line dancing circles. This isn't slur against the Scottish nation or Shoeshine, which is one of the finest indie labels in the country. And no massive disrespect to Miller or his casuals, but this album, whilst full of delicate picking and respectable singing, has no soul and wanders so close to the middle of the road that Neil Young would curse forcefully in it's general direction. To quote Thad Cockrell, there's definitely no 'alt' in this country. "
