It was bound to happen. You let a perfectly good sideman like picker deluxe Jon Rauhouse record a solo covers album and the next thing you know he's writing his own songs and singing them. Steel Guitar Heart Attack isn't as terrible as it could've been – not because Rauhouse is such an amazing crooner (he ain't), but he knows his vocal limitations and has enough favours due him to call in some singers he's backed, including Sally Timms, Neko Case, Rachel Flotard and Kelly Hogan, players like Calexico's Joey Burns and John Convertino along with Paul Rigby, Bill Herzog and many others. Only none of the guest vocalists seem to have a natural affinity for the 50s jukebox numbers they're performing, so it may have been a better idea to kick the alt-country cuties to the curb and give fellow hombres Burns, Convertino and Rigby some microphone time. At the very least, it might've saved him a few grey hairs in the mixdown.
