If everybody did this, I really don't think I'd mind. I mean, if everybody did a Roger Miller track or two, or even a whole album. There's something about those songs that just says, "Sing me!" And the more other folks sing 'em, the more contagious they get. Anyway, O'Brien Party of 7 (Hot Rize's Tim O'Brien, and various relations) went the full-album route, and if the sample exemplifies the rest of the recording, they did well. And if it doesn't exemplify the whole album, well they can rest content on the laurels of "In the Summertime". "In the Summertime" with fiddle--and feet!
