Product Description

Well, here it is, the record that fans of Buddy's and Julie's solo albums have been eagerly awaiting. Of course, true fans are aware that every disc by either of them has been a de facto Buddy & Julie Miller record. He plays all over hers, she sings and writes all over his--what's the difference here? Other than more equally divided lead vocals, not much--some studio versions of favorites from their live performances, some cool covers (Richard Thompson, Bob Dylan), a trio vocal with Emmylou Harris, and "That's Just How She Cries," a tune that demonstrates why Julie is one of our finest songwriters and Buddy is one of our most soulful singers. Buddy & Julie Miller may be a bunch of tracks thrown together to appease the throngs clamoring for a duo project, rather than the revelation some had hoped, but it still serves as an energetic simulacrum of their shows and will do just fine until the next Buddy and/or Julie Miller record. --Michael Ross

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect 5 -- whew! March 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Still buzzing from seeing Buddy and Julie Miller's pre-Grammys show at the Roxy in L.A. A pack of alt-country stars made their way onstage to pay tribute to this great couple, the highlight being Emmylou Harris, who showed up to re-create her "Forever Has Come to an End" duet with Julie. The Millers got a big laugh out of their Grammy nomination (for this rocking album) in the folk category, and then went on to demonstrate how richly they deserved the award in the right category (rock, country?). Whatever. This is an addictive album, with great originals and covers that don't wear out their welcome. The opening version of Richard Thompson's "Keep Your Distance" is a high-energy blast of country honk that begins a breathtaking five-song run. Julie's "You Make My Heart Beat Too Fast" pilfers the big chords from "Wild Thing" and tops them with the love call of an alpha-female on the make. Even the cover of Dylan's pokey "Wildflower" shines. There's something to say about all of this songs, because this is one of those rare all-killer-no-filler albums. If you appreciate Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, mid-period Stones, Lucinda Williams and co. this must not be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars roots music of surpassing excellence October 2, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Buddy and Julie Miller were just names to me till I bought this CD, though of course I knew Julie's often-recorded "All My Tears." Hearing this excellent disc, I want to hear more. To my new ears, they come across as an American Richard and Linda Thompson, by which I mean the highest praise. (Fittingly, they do a fine cover of Richard's "Keep Your Distance.") Like the Thompsons, the Millers have absorbed folk and rock sounds into their skin and bones; unlike the Thompsons, they've added Southern sounds -- at least in their harmonies -- of country and bluegrass. Julie, who wrote all of the originals here (with one co-write with Buddy), is clearly a composer of formidable talent. Her "Forever Has Come to an End" sounds like a long-lost Carter Family song, and the lyrics to "The River's Gonna Run" are almost poetic enough to stand on their own, even before you've heard the melody and the performance. There's also a good choice of covers, including a powerfully rendered version of Utah Phillips's most famous song, "Rock Salt and Nails." Their passionate, old-timey inflected version of "Wallflower," a distinctly minor Dylan composition, makes it sound like a far better song than it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars still awesome September 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you're not familiar with these folks, Steve Earle has said (repeatedly) that "Buddy Miller is the best country singer there is- period." And Julie's songwriting (like Buddy's guitar playing) is otherworldly. A lot of knowledgeable folks call this couple the "reigning king and queen of country." Listening to these two to learn about is like sticking your fingers on a high voltage line to experience electricity.
You WILL get jolted, believe me.
But their previous work is a very tough act to follow. The Millers have given us a string of such great albums that anything less seems sort of like a let down. If you had never heard "Broken Things" (officially by Julie Miller, but produced by Buddy with his playing and singing) or you had never heard "Cruel Moon" by Buddy Miller (with Julie's songwriting and vocals) then you would think that this is a ground breaking "roots" Americana album. The originals are heartbreakers and the covers are really cool.
But apparently there were some problems getting this one "in the can." It was supposed to be out in the spring and in fact, I saw them on that tour and it was called the "We Still Don't Have a Record Yet Tour." Buddy has said on their newsletter:
"Julie and I finished our record on the days off during Emmylou's summer tour. We had to stay up 60+ hours without sleep to finish before I was back on the road. "
But like I said, this is nevertheless an outstanding album. For me, for instance, a real surprise was their version of "Utah" Phillips' "Rock Salt and Nails." It holds up darn well next to Joe Ely's terrific live version.
So if you held a gun to my head, I might say that if you don't already own "Broken Things" and "Cruel Moon"- get them first, but after you do, then get this one!
Now-.... when is that live album coming out...?

5.0 out of 5 stars get this one October 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD is the best of a recent batch of great new CDs that I've come across. Hiatt, the Drifters and Dylan are no slouches, but this inspired set is my favorite of the bunch - the yin and yang of Julie Miller's writing and Buddy Miller's inspired playing (and their vocal teamwork) make for an intoxicating whole. A great balance of rockers and more introspective pieces, this album is either a great introduction to these two talents or an affirmation of their place alongside musical compatriots Earle/Harris/Hiatt/Williams et al. Great stuff and a welcome addition to any collection. The three covers are delights: Richard Thompson's Keep Your Distance, Utah Phillips' Rock Salt and Nails and Dylan's Wallflowers; however, a testament to Ms. Miller's writing is that her songs are as good as any of them. And whoa . . . Buddy plays with an abandon that is a wonderful thing to behold. Get it.
