24 Hrs., 7 Days A Week album for sale by The Cactus Brothers was released Sep 12, 1995 on the Capitol Nashville label. A Week CD music contains a single disc with 11 songs. The Cactus Brothers shook up their creative roster quite a bit for 24 Hrs., 7 Days a Week, the band's sophomore album. Sam Poland and dulcimer wizard David Schnaufer were gone, as was drummer David Kennedy. The band added steel guitarist Jim Fungaroli and drummer Johnny Tulucci and carried on with pretty much the same sound that they had built their audience and reputation on, a high-energy blend of roots rock and traditional country. 24 Hrs., 7 Days a Week benefits from the evenhanded production of fellow musician Randy Scruggs, who brought the band's natural rowdy inclinations to bear on both original material and covers alike while also managing to add a slight commercial sheen to the band's rough edges. Singer/songwriter Paul Kirby's original songs are stronger and more expressive than much of his previous material; cuts like "A Woman's Touch" and "Secret Language," a duet with Matraca Berg, mine a familiar romantic vein in a lively and lyrically intelligent fashion. The Cactus Brothers offer a pair of red-hot covers here, delivering a spirited performance of the Creedence Clearwater Revival favorite "Lodi" while the band's honky tonk roots shine brightly on a rave-up reading of Red Simpson's classic Highway Patrol. Personnel:Kirby (vocals, guitar); Will Golemon (guitar, banjo); Tramp (guitar, mandolin, fiddle); Jim Fungaroll (steel & melobar guitars); John Golemon (bass). Additional personnel: Matraca Berg (vocals); Reese Wynans (keyboards); Kenny Aronoff (drums).
