Product Description

Amazon.com

As the "Dream Players" billing suggests, Jim Lauderdale shares the spotlight with his supporting cast on this stellar country release. Though the strength of his songwriting and his distinctively twisted vocals remain staples, here Lauderdale has recruited the most luminous musical lineup ever to back him. Legendary guitarist James Burton trades licks with pianist Glen D. Hardin, a fellow Elvis Presley alum, and Flying Burrito Brothers’ steel ace Al Perkins, with Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless, Buddy Miller, and Kelly Hogan all contributing background vocals. Highlights include breakup balladry ("It’s Finally Sinking In"), Western gallop ("The Daughter of Majestic Sage"), and, as a thematic change of pace, the intervention plea of "Hitting It Hard." Lauderdale has never released an album that fails to satisfy, but the powerhouse backing makes this one exceptional. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, delicious honey songs March 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I completely disagree with the previous 2-star reviewer. This album is wonderful. I find it somewhat similar to his album "Wait Till Spring" that he recorded with Donna the Buffalo (excellent album) and also "Hummingbirds." Yes, this is not another bluegrass album, but it isn't necessarily a completely new direction for Jim either. He's done the more rock-tinged stuff before. The styles are greatly varied and the backing band of "big-name" players sounds very natural and unimposing. The splendid songcrafting abilities of Jim still shine through. I think this album is superior to "Hummingbirds" and at least an equal to "Wait Till Spring."

I can't find anything wrong with a top-notch songwriter playing around in a variety of styles or working with various "big-name" musicians.

I'm somewhat in the middle of the two previous reviews posted here. I've most of Lauderdale's CDs in the past - and loved most of them (I'm a bit partial to the bluegrass ones though) - but missed this release until I saw Jim perform with James Burton at this year's Folk Alliance in Memphis. Jim mentioned his Burton tribute CD and gave me the name. Well this is it and James is right at the top of the list of "Dream Players" on the CD sleeve. But he's not the only one here playing and the harmony vocals are a team of "Dream Singers": Buddy Miller, Patty Loveless are just a start and Emmy Lou Harris blends with Jim's twang on the final track "I'm Almost Back".

The Album starts out HOT with "Honeysuckle Pie" and has a few upbeat numbers, but then starts to slow down in tempo, with that Harris duet the perfect close to the CD. (That track wouldn't fit as well anywhere else in the set list.

Lauderdale appeals to a diverse group of music fans and keeps cranking out quality CDs on Yep Rock to try to satisfy everyone.

This may not be the perfect Lauderdale CD (at least in my opinion), but its way up there!

3.0 out of 5 stars More music, less lyrics September 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As the attribution "& the Dream Players" suggests, there's more of a focus on excellent instrumental playing on this album (and some guest harmonies). But overall, the album is a bit of a letdown. While most of the songs were written just by Lauderdale, they're lyrically just not as strong as his best. "Honeysuckle Honeypie" is a surprising song for Lauderdale, and succeeds mostly on its instrumental strengths. "Stingray" is strong, but the chorus is almost a clone of "Fireball" from Every Second Counts. "I'm Almost Back" is the strongest 'traditional' Lauderdale song, but doesn't equal his best. The title of "Those Kind of Things Don't Happen Every Day" promises the Lauderdale we used to know, but sadly doesn't deliver at all, offering instead a song that could have been on Country Super Hits, Vol. 1.

If you're a real Lauderdale fan, by all means get this. If you're wavering or new to Lauderdale, start somewhere else.
