Doin' Time On Planet Earth

Released in 1999 on Leap Records, this is The Brooklyn Cowboys'debut album and the only one to include the original lineup.

Although considered "country rock" this album is defintely more country than rock. I'm talking fiddles, steel guitars, twangy voices, the whole thing.

I've never been a fan of country music and were it not for Walter Egan's involvement in this band, I would not have bought this cd. To be honest, the first few times I listened to this disc, I didn't like it at all. I am starting to appreciate it more now but I still rarely listen to it.

That being said, this album, and certainly The Brooklyn Cowboys as a whole, is really much more for fans of country music than for fans of Walter Egan's solo work (though Egan does dual duty as both lead vocalist and main songwriter for the band).
