Bob McKnight & His Ranch Boys

Welcome to what's left of Rootin' Around -- a ragtag, long-defunct roots music review that surveyed the best (and worst) of yesterday and today's country, blues, juju, bluegrass, jazz, hokum, old timey, ska, rockabilly, merengue, surf and kazoo band releases.

Rootin' Around ceased publication -- after seven longwinded years -- in early 1999, in the face of overwhelming public apathy and industry indifference. The site may make an unheralded comeback someday, if its owner/publisher can ever get his act together and muster up something relevant to say.

If you're feeling nostalgic or have nothing better to do, feel free to send us an e-mail to lodge a complaint or just say howdy.
