Review

Tim Wilson only moved from Southern Tracks Records to Capitol Records in 1999, but he had made four albums for the label -- It's a Sorry World, Gettin' My Mind Right, Hillbilly Homeboy, and I Should've Married My Father-In-Law (to go with five earlier ones for Southern Tracks) -- by 2001. Still, issuing a compilation based mostly on those records seems premature. It consists of ten humorous songs sung by the comedian (one of which, "Dale Darrell Waltrip Richard Petty Rusty Awesome Bill Irvin Gordon Earnhardt Smith...Johnson Jr.," was licensed from Southern Tracks), plus 12 standup bits based on his Uncle BS character. Wilson sings and speaks in a deep voice with a heavy southern accent, and he indulges in rural humor that refers constantly to redneck stereotypes. His jokes tend to be one-dimensional; for example, the song "Acid Country" simply juxtaposes references to country music and acid rock without explaining what's funny about that. The Uncle BS routines always place a teller of tall tales into historical settings, such as Custer's last stand or Columbus' discovery of America, and key-off of the redneck anachronisms the character introduces. Depending upon the listener's age and his or her sensibility, some of these may be considered in poor taste, particularly one that involves Uncle BS inadvertently causing the assassination of President Kennedy. Of course, good taste is not a common currency to comedians, and especially listeners of a southern bent who recognize Wilson's cultural references may find him amusing, even the second time around. ~ William Ruhlmann
