Editorial Reviews

Inspired by her critically acclaimed and commercial hit album from 2001, Mountain Soul, comes the long-awaited follow up to one of Patty Loveless's best-loved albums. In Mountain Soul II Patty's Kentucky roots shine through like a
breath of fresh air, featuring her crystalline country vocals amid bluegrass-tinged accompaniment. Patty is surrounded by a stellar supporting cast, including country and bluegrass legends Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, Al Perkins, and Del
and Ronnie McCoury, making Mountain Soul II completely authentic and a true listening pleasure.

Format: Audio CD
Take a vocalist at the height of her prowess, remove the need to play to the mainstream, let her loose in the genre she's most comfortable in, surround her with the best Appalachian bluegrass musicians, let the man who loves her the most produce and protect her and give her 15 musical gems to sing. Provide absolutely flawless arrangements, production and engineering and you have the recipe for Patty Loveless' new CD "Mountain Soul II." The result is just a stunningly beautiful recording that is easily one of 2009's best of all genres.

Every cut is a delight, compelling, pure, sometimes heartbreakingly sad but always anchored by Patty's outstanding vocals. She has been wonderful for decades and with "Mountain Soul II" takes it to another level. Not a weak cut here but if I had to list my favorites they would be "A Handful Of Dust," "When The Last Curtain Falls," "The Bramble And The Rose," "Busted" and "A Prisoner's Tears." My apologies to the other songs because I could have selected any of them as well.

A true artist at the top of her craft, Patty Loveless delivers a tour de force that is of such quality that while not aimed at the mainstream will undoubtedly make inroads there. Real people reecognize the real thing when they hear it.

P.S. Here's a recommendation - a duet CD with Patty Loveless and Allison Kraus. Now wouldn't that be a treat.

Mr. Dorfman has said it much more eloquently than I, but let me add my $.02. I've been listening to and playing country music for 50 years and this is the first time I've been able to say this about any album, it's perfect! I've always been a Patty Loveless fan but her last three albums have been just stunning. Mountain Soul II is the best of the bunch. Patty is the most soulful and versitile female country singer to have ever walked the planet. Sorry Patsy, Loretta and Tammy but it's true. She has matured into a singer who has no equal. Her name belongs up there with Jones, Haggard, Cline and dare I say, Williams Sr. I know I sound like a kid gushing over the latest pop wonder but I'm an old guy with lots of miles on my odometer and lots of listening experience so what I've said here is heart felt. My hope is that some of the current crop of country performers (male and female) will listen to and learn from her.

For fans of "Real" Country music, please read on. For those of you who feel that what is shoved down your throats on the so-called Country music stations is "Country" music, you can stop here. I don't want to waste your time.

Patty has been around for awile now, considered by many to be one of the old guard, so to speak. She has come to a point of her career obviously, that she doesn't really care if the radio stations play her music or not(not that it doesn't hurt her inside, I'm sure), but is simply proud that she can still satisfy her core fan base and hold on to her integrity. She absolutely does that with Mountain Soul II. This is an album of epic proportions -a work of art. For those of you who still love good ole' "real" Country music, don't hesitate for one day to purchase this gem. A few years ago Patty chose to go back to her roots and record "Mountain Soul" which received fantastic critical acclaim, but of course was missed by radio(deliberately), in my opinion. All country radio wants to play today is what I refer to as washed over Southern Rock N' Roll, and I loved Southern Rock, but not when I want to hear Country music. There are some of the current million unit selling artists that you can't even understand when they "sing?".

I'm not going to review each and every song as some reviewers like to do. I feel that way of doing things many times becomes boring. I will tell you that the opening cut, "Busted", the great Harlan Howard song blows the doors off of anything being played on the country stations today(save for George Strait and Alan Jackson). Patty even went so far as going back to some of the original coal mining lyrics of this song, which have been changed by some artists, probably due mostly because her late Father was a coal miner.

This is an absolutely wonderful recording, and a worthy follow up to the earlier "Mountain Soul".

I've listened to this CD many times in the past ten days, and gave another listen to the original Mountain Soul, and it is startling how well "Two" follows the original. The level of musicianship, the sparkling production, and of course her vocals are all first rate, all executed with subtlety, precision and soul. Patty and her crew are all seasoned pros, and they make it all sound SO easy.

I understand that like her last album, "Sleepless Nights", all of this (with the probable exception of "Diamonds in My Crown", which lists a different studio for Emmylou Harris' vocal) was recorded 'live', in real time, in the studio, with all musicians playing together, rather than having some players appearing on tracks added later. As always, production duties are handled by Patty's husband and long time collaborator, Emory Gordy Jr, who also plays acoustic guitar on some songs, bass on others, in addition to lending his considerable talents as composer and arranger. Emory has an exceptional musical history himself, having recorded and toured with Elvis, was a member of Emmylou Harris' Hot Band for many years, and in the early 70's worked many studio dates in LA with members of the Wrecking Crew.

Probably the most interesting (to me) of the sacred songs on the current offering is the traditional "(We are all) Children of Abraham", based on the Old Testament narrative and powerfully sung a capella by Patty and the Burnt Hickory Primitive Baptist Congregation. Primitive Baptists are a small old order sect that split from mainline Baptists around 175 years ago, and strong congregational singing with no accompaniment is integral to their services.
