Product Description

11 tracks worth of some great cover songs such as Roy Orbison's 'Blue Bayou', The Louvin Bros. 'The Great Atomic Power', The Flying Burrito Bros. 'Hot Burrito #1', & more, packaged in a die-cut slipcase. CMH Records. 2004.

Amazon.com

As vocalist for the Mavericks, Raul Malo's powerful voice and the band's success in mixing vintage material with originals arranged in "classic" styles helped revive eclecticism in Nashville. Here, he and a first-rate band of acoustic sidemen run through country, pop, and folk standards, most (not all) well-known. Mixing Bob Dylan ("You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go") and Gordon Lightfoot ("Early Morning Rain") with Jimmie Rodgers ("Waiting for a Train") and the Louvin Brothers ("The Great Atomic Power") is quintessential Malo. Having long ago channeled Roy Orbison's vocal dynamics, it's a given that he soars on "Blue Bayou" and the Henry Mancini-Johnny Mercer pop standard "Moon River." He and the musicians rework Van Morrison's "Bright Side of the Road" into a powerful gospel-style rave-up. Good as those three numbers are, the players don't sustain that same level throughout. These supremely gifted pickers, all respected instrumentalists, play it safe with solos and arrangements. Even Malo himself seems uncharacteristically low-keyed. The music is certainly pleasant, but given such a stellar blend of talent, it's also disappointingly predictable. --Rich Kienzle

I have been a fan of Raul's ever since I saw him sing "Make the world go away" on the Nashville celebrates the Ryman tv special several years ago. I just love to hear him sing, and this cd is
beautiful. I have been playing it since I bought it and the rendition of Blue Bayou is very haunting. Great job and the instrumentals are first rate. Highly recommended.

Maybe not as powerful as it could have been, but perhaps that's because I've heard everything the man's recorded and heard him live several times. This is a laid back, comfortable collection with at least three crackerjack songs on it. My favorites are The Great Atomic Power, You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go and Bright Side Of The Road but there's enough different styles for anybody to enjoy something. Well worth purchasing.

As I'm writing this, I'm hearin' for... I don't know how many times to this great album. With all the due respect, I just don't understand what does Rich Kienzle mean by "disappointingly predictable". I mean, come on, what's so predictable about it or, even worst, disappointingly? It's a great album! Great musicians, great selection of songs and on the top of it all there's Raul Malo's voice, the best one since Elvis and Roy Orbison. That's the plain truth. Sorry Rich, but that's the way I see. If I'm disapointed is that the album has mere 12 songs. I could hear 12 more, easily. Once a heard a fan saying that he would pay just to hear Doc Watson talk. It wouldn't matter if he wouldn't sing or play anything. I understood right away what he meant, because I would to. The same thing applies to artists like Raul Malo. He doesn't have to do much to please his audience and, in my point of view, he does a lot on this record. I didn't like his previous work "Today", the songs aren't good and so, but still there's a great voice behind them. Well, I think I've said enough. Fans, of course will love it. Newcomers would want more. That's how I see.

Favorites tunes? Louvin Brothers' "Great Atomic Power", Roy's "Blue Bayou", and Hank Williams's "Weary Blues". Although the instrumental is great, I'd love to hear Malo singing Jimmie Roger's "Waiting For A Train". Maybe next time. The weakest try is Gram Parsons' "Hot Burrito", once Malo himself has done it better. Keep on singin' Raul and God bless you.

I love Raul, he has the most amazing voice and a style all his own. Anyone who enjoys his work with the Mavericks or his more recent solo albums will like this cd. It does have a different feel, more stripped down and basic. Raul does a great job with the vocals and you really hear the music behind him. Sometimes music seems to be all about the singer but on this album the instruments shine along with the vocals. It is very laid back - not one to put on while cleaning the house but, a good one for a mellow mood. Blue Bayou is amazing and one of my all time favorite songs Sentimental Reasons will have you singing to your sweetie and waltzing around the kitchen.

If you enjoy Raul Malo's voice and like acoustic country/bluegrass you will love this album. Unlike the Mavericks with more dobro and less pop feel.

Raul Malo has one of the most remarkable voices around today. I never miss purchasing his latest CD. This one doesn't disappoint me. No matter how often I play it I'm delighted. I recommend it to anyone who hasn't listened to Raul's music. If they do they'll likely be hooked too.

I'll buy just about anything that Raul Malo records, either solo or with the Mavericks. I came across these "acoustic sessions" a few years ago and eagerly ordered it. Very happy with this CD. Man, these are great songs. First of all, I think the choice of covers was very inspired, and they all really suit Raul's voice. Yes, "That Voice," one of music's most thrilling voices. And when he gets his vocal chords around these tracks, magic happens. Pick your favorite tune on here, it could be any of them. Really, they all sound fabulous, and the one instrumental track is hot too. I don't know who the other musicians on here are, but they flawlessly play these tunes with flair and fire. Package that with Raul Malo's distinctive voice and you have a winner. If forced to pick favorite tracks, I'd go with "Early Morning Rain," "The Great Atomic Power" and "Hot Burrito #1." Delicious stuff. If you are fan of Raul Malo you NEED to get this CD also!
