    Appealing directly to my tastes for western swing
    and cajun cowboy country, Next Time sees Pickens
    and Baz trading songs and vocals and playing just
    about everything besides drums and fiddle....Baz and
    Pickens have put together a little gem of a record.

about

Baz says: This song began as a conscious attempt to sit down and write a definitive original 'Slim & Baz' song - (something that never actually existed before) and I'm happy to say I think that I came pretty close with this one.
It's a little bit country, sits nicely in open D on the resonator guitar, has a bunch of (I guess what you'd call) unserious lyrics. Grooves along nicely, and we could play it straight up, without having to think too much. Hugh Hefner got into the picture because he was about as far from old-timey hillbilly music as you can get - which I guess is called 'creative tension'. And once old Hugh had said hello, well... it all just flowed on naturally from there until, to my delight, I found out what I was actually writing about when I got to the last verse.
