Editorial Reviews

Song titles such as "Merle World" and "Honky Tonk Haze" leave little doubt about this album's musical focus. While Jim Lauderdale's recent releases have extended his musical landscape from rhythm & blues to bluegrass, here he returns to the hard twang of the Bakersfield sound as popularized by Merle Haggard and Buck Owens in the 1960s. Fiddles and steel guitars frame roadhouse shuffles, though some of the slighter songs ("First Things First," "Diesel, Diesel, Diesel") sound like period-piece novelties. By contrast, the album's open-hearted balladry seems less nostalgic than timeless, with "You'll Know When It's Right" (cowritten with the legendary Harlan Howard), "I'd Follow You Anywhere," and "Oh My Goodness" representing Lauderdale at his soulful best. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars THE OTHER SESSIONS - ESSENTIAL COUNTRY ! October 3, 2001
By R.S.
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album in June this year - after a few listens I thought "this guy sure writes and sounds different, but he's pretty good" - after a few more listens I thought "this guy not only writes well, but the way he sings is really starting to grow on me too" - after a few more listens I thought "this guy is one of THE BEST songwriters around and I LOVE the way he sings!" I'm still listening and Jim Lauderdale is now in my favorite artist list along with the likes of Dwight Yoakam,Buddy Miller,Rodney Crowell,etc.
'The Other Sessions' is essential REAL COUNTRY for 2001!

4.0 out of 5 stars This guy can SING! September 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I am of the opinion that a proper country record cannot be made these days unless Jim Lauderdale sings the harmonies. Folks like Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miller, the fabulous Chris Gaffney and Dwight Yoakum agree with me. Everyone raves about Jim Lauderdale's songwriting ability (and it is AWESOME in its power!), but I never read much about what a great singer he is. Listen to this record and see what I mean. Start with Merle World, Honky Tonk Haze, First Things First and go from there. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think the Del Reeves/Lauderdale version of Diesel, Diesel, Diesel on the Rig Rock Deluxe record is better. This is a hard country record with enough steel guitar (which means a BUNCH). Lauderdale's voice blends so perfectly with the steel that you'll be in Honky Tonk Heaven.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jim heads back to a more retro sound August 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
For years, Jim Lauderdale has been recording albums critics rave over and whose songs currents stars like the Dixie Chicks and George Strait have covered. Yet the man has never found success in his own right, even with his more mainstream sounding album "Onward Through It All." With "The Other Sessions," Lauderdale steps away from that sound and has recorded a tight album whose sound nobody will confuse with anything but old-style country. You can almost here George Jones' voice on "Just To Get to You" or Buck Owens' on "Diesel, Diesel, Diesel," (my personal favorite -- who else can work the Twilight Zone theme into a country song?). And "It's Not Too Late" wins the award as the song George Strait is most likely to cover on his next album. My only complaint is that even with 12 songs, the disc lasts barely more than 30 minutes. But, if you've liked Jim Lauderdale in the past, or are tired with the current state of pop country radio, you won't be disappointed with "The Other Sessions."

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant April 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you want to know how to write a song, you should study people like Jim Lauderdale. "If I Were You" (I'd Love Me Forever) and "Diesel, Diesel, Diesel" are the ones to particulary listen to if you want to know what makes a hit. His voice is easily as good as any of the crooners that are selling multi-platinum.
