5.0 out of 5 stars Rising star in the "old country" tradition! December 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ed Burleson is a great addition to the "old country" revival that is being led (I'm proud to say) in Texas. I saw him with his band last Saturday night in Austin down at the Broken Spoke and I'm here to tell you that he will be the next country legend. Buy this disc if you like REAL country music. It should be noted that this album was produced in no small part by country music legends Clay Blaker and the late Doug Sahm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank God for Texas country October 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It's sad that in a Country music world dominated by Nashville and the radio industry, a true-to-the-bone Country artist like Burleson should be labeled "throwback" or his music disclaimed as "real" country. It's the co-opters in contemporary Country who should take on the extra adjectives, and music like Burleson's should be left alone to be called Country, period.
Burleson's debut for (the late) Doug Sahm's Tornado shows just how strong a genre Country music is, and how little it needs the machinations of modernized production and pop genuflection to be effective. Burleson's originals, and covers of titles by Jim Lauderdale, (producer) Clay Baker, and Doug Sahm cover many traditional Country bases, backed by twangy steel (courtesy of Lloyd Maines) and fiddle, stellar lead guitar from the likes of ex-Lost Planet Airman Bill Kirchen, and plenty of rhythm for a two-step around the honky-tonk. The sting of Bakersfield telecasters add extra energy. Burleson's twangy vocals take on a number of different classic (there's those adjectives again!) flavors. Perhaps most surprisingly are the occasional hints of stylists like Garth Books (in his least guarded and most Country moments). It makes one wonder where artists like Brooks would have ended up if they hadn't gotten famous.
From the CD's demure cover photo a casual buyer might dismiss this as another handsome Nashville hat act, but the contents will quickly set you straight. Recorded in Floresville, TX, this is truely music of the heartland. Fans of Jack Ingram or the Robison brothers should check this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Special Ed" August 7, 2000
By Leah
Format:Audio CD
Ed Burleson's "Wide Open Spaces" is a great album. It is just great good ol' honky tonk music. Hearing his CD you will just get a taste of how great he is, if you get the chance, check him out LIVE, he is in his element. Ed is a great character who only cares about making his music and keeping it real, and he definitley does that on this album.

I first heard "clingin to you" on KVET in Austin, Texas. The sound was "refreshing" in an old kind of way. I then bought the CD, well no wonder, Clay Blaker is involved. This CD was recorded in Floresville Texas, (where I own property), but It sounds so professional, congrats to Clay, Tommy, the late Doug Sahm, and of course Ed Burleson himself. I will definately be looking forward for a future release from Ed, but NO RUSH, this one is going to keep me going for a while. WARNING! This is "real" country music! You may be tempted to go out and buy a pick-up truck and/or boots!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Country December 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you like REAL country music, not the kind you can't distinguish from soft pop, this album is for you. Lots of steel guitar and fiddle (including some double fiddles), no string sections or little-girl-voice choruses on this one. If you are station-hopping and hear a cut off this one, you know you have a country-music station (not that this probably ever gets played on "country" radio stations).

5.0 out of 5 stars Filled with Texas twang, steel and fiddles February 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I play this CD so much it will wear out soon. Do you long for real country-western music? This is the genuine article. Where Nashville continues to get it all wrong, Texas continues to get it all right. Ed Burleson's charming Texas twang is sincere, high-energy, and pulls you in instantly. He hooks you from the first moment you listen to him sing. "No Tears" is great...Goin' Home To Texas" is fabulous...all the songs are great. And with Lloyd Maines on steel and the rest of these musicians who play real country music, there is no way you could lose with this CD. You will want to two-step the night away with this one. BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars PURE TEXAS September 8, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
Next to George strait, no other singer since Bob Wills has captured Texas music so clealy and so directly. This is a must for any serious country music lover. Have seen this artist in person and listened on CD. No difference. Just pure Texas.
