Title: LYLE LOVETT
Street Release Date: 03/28/1988
Lyle Lovett sprang up fully-formed in 1986, the bastard child of Randy Newman and Townes Van Zandt. His eponymous debut set the pace for future releases, balancing near-perfect ballads ("If I Were the Man You Wanted," "Closing Time") with wry, black humor romps ("God Will," "An Acceptable Level of Ecstasy"). His singing is also in place here, his voice a subtle expressive tool as dry as the West Texas plains. There are flashes of overproduction, as on the over-amped "You Can't Resist It" (which later found its home on stage in a spare cello arrangement), but overall things are pretty tasteful, like Lovett himself. Also check out Lovett's stunning sophomore effort, Pontiac. --Michael Ruby

Lyle started off with a bang with this one. I had this cd when it first came out and them lent it out and it never returned. Well worth replacingPublished 4 months ago by J. Bennett
I love his music. I have several albums and enjoy it all; especially listening to different versions, live vs taped. He's a crooner!Published 16 months ago by sharon sherwood
This has a lot of great songs on it, and we get to see some of his early confidence, both in his singing and songwriting that we see more fully developed on Pontiac and Joshua... Read morePublished 21 months ago by A. Miller
I love Lyle Lovett but not enough to pay for his music 2 or 3 times.
He has a beautiful voice and it was made just for this kind of music.
I've seen Lyle Lovett several times in concert. This CD has so many of my favorite tunes, it always reminds of the outdoor concerts. I just love LylePublished on April 18, 2013 by Rita
What can you say about Lyle, either you love him or not. This is the best I think, more upbeat, would be more complete if they added "Thats right your not from Texas"....Published on December 11, 2012 by yours truly
I love Lyle's music and have been a fan for a long time.
This album was not my favorite, but still very good.
