Editorial Reviews

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Upbeat and Well Crafted Country and Country Rock April 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I found this cd to be very enjoyable. I'm a little surprised that some reviews are so critical. Jim has teamed up with various folks for years as a session player and has taken his albums different creative directions. He's an outstanding instrumentalist, and from my viewpoint, an outstanding country singer. His voice has a lot of George Jones to it without seeming put-on. Some folks may prefer his more bluegrass flavored stuff and the influence of Robert Hunter's lyrics (Grateful Dead co-writer w/Garcia), but I've enjoyed the variations, as adventurous as his recordings with Donna the Buffalo. This one has great session players he's performed with at various times, James Burton/lead guitar, Al Perkins/steel guitar, Glen Hardin/piano, and numerous vocal contributors, Emmy Lou Harris, Patty Loveless, Buddy miller,...I'd suggest sampling "Borrow Some Summertime", "Stingray", and "I'm Almost Back". This is an upbeat album with several country-rock flavored tunes, with some nice pure country moments as well. I don't think there's a clinker in the bunch.

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.
