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

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!

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.
