Rhett Miller has been rollerskating around the edge of fame for approximately two decades now, and the Old 97s are all the better for it. Creating albums too diverse, uncategorizable, and earnest to enumerate or to ever break through into the mainstream, Miller and his band have been quietly making alt-country rock that walks down the same roads as artists like John Prine. Relentlessly prolific in both his solo career and with this band, Rhett and the Old 97s deliver story songs with swing, twang, and restlessness rolled into a their own down-home gospel.
