|Studio album by Ramblin' Jack Elliott|
|Ramblin' Jack Elliott chronology|
Cover of the reissue of Country Style and Jack Elliott at the Second Fret
Writing for Allmusic, music critic Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr. wrote the album "On Country Style, one can see the rambling doctor's son come into his own as a performer... Elliott steps away from the past to carve out an irreverent, slap-happy style that showed that folk music, when handled without studious care, could be a helluva lot of fun... Country Style represents the first flowering of Elliott's talent and turning point for folk traditionalism."
