Spanic Family Album (1995)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: The Spanic Family; Genre: Country

Like the Everly Brothers, the members of the Spanic family — Tom Spanic, his cousin Butch, and his son Ian — are roots-rock virtuosos. Unfortunately, their guitars sing better than they do, and their originals tend to be corny. Still, graceful melodies and a melancholy pedal-steel sound make Spanic Family Album worthwhile listening, even for those outside of the clan. B
