5.0 out of 5 stars If it were a tape, it'd be worn out already December 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I drove across country shortly after getting this cd, and I barely took it out of the cd player the whole way--not sure how many hundreds of times that means I've listened to this! I love the "new" Dixie Chicks, too (sisters Martie and Emily Erwin are the only common thread), but I was curious about their previous sound, and I wasn't disappointed! This is a great record, with a lot of great harmony and, of course, talented ladies playing the heck out of just about every stringed instrument there is.

That said, buy their new records too! Natalie Maines, the lead singer, is witty and expressive, and her beautiful voice goes great with Martie and Emily's fiddle/banjo/mandolin/etc. Laura Lynch and Robin Lynn Macy brought some very different things to the mix, but their departures were largely, if not entirely, their own choices, and I hate to see Natalie punished for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Favorite July 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album way before anyone had heard of the Dixie Chicks, and it remains my favorite of theirs. Its bluegrassy instrumentals and honest-sounding vocals are a pleasure to listen to, and there's nothing slick about this cd. I can see why they haven't re-released it, though - it sounds nothing like the present Chicks. Snag one used if you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Different Chicks, somewhat different sounds September 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have been a big Chicks fan since "Fly" and supported them through "the incident". I got to see their recent concert and wanted to hear them from "before". I was not disappointed. This album and their older sound has it's own special, acoustic and bluegrass charm. Glad I got it, the old and new Chicks rule!

Some of you might know -- but others might not -- that there was a group called the Dixie Chicks, formed back in the late 80s, that was very different from today's group of the same name. The two groups are related, of course; sisters Martie and Emily Erwin were members of both the original ensemble and the current group. But they really should have changed the name of the band somewhere along the line, because today's group bears little resemblance, in appearance or music, to that original group -- whose first album was "Thank Heavens for Dale Evans".
Clearly, the majority of Americans prefer the new group -- as evidenced by the fact that the new Chicks have found the commercial success that always eluded the original Chicks. But the changes that were required to achieve that success came at a heavy artistic cost. Today's country/pop/rock sound makes the Chicks just part of that generic pop scene that sells most of the records, but has little real art to it. The original Dixie Chicks, on the other hand, were a truly unique group: An all-girl band who could really play and sing serious bluegrass and western swing music. And I mean really play. You'll have to try to get a copy of this album to see that I'm right about that.
Unfortunately, getting a copy might not be easy since the "new" Chicks have tried mightily to erase any memory of their past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School dixie Chicks July 27, 2002
By Melissa
Format:Audio CD
I grew up listening to the Dixie Chicks giving their free concerts in Dallas every week or so. I love Oh Thank Heavens for Dale Evans. And I feel it's a shame that they, first of all, dropped and added different members to the group, and second of all, changed their musical stylings. Any bluegrass fan will absolutely adore this CD, and so will any true blue Dixie Chicks fan. I really reccomend buying this CD, you will cherish it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected.
Not the real Dixie Chicks, sound rather old-fashioned. It wasn't what I expected but it is at least a historical version of the later popular Dixie Chicks.

Amazon.com really blew it on this one. They sent me the wrong CD twice. I should have known "Thank Heavens for Dale Evans" wasn't readily available. Read more
