Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"For this album I wanted to take what we do live and convert it into a record. We wanted to capture the 70's vibe of not just rock and pop music, but country music, too. The way music was made back then, with Waylon and his band going into the studio, or The Eagles or the Allman Brothers. They'd all go camp out somewhere and eat, sleep and breathe it. That's what we wanted to capture." - Tim McGraw

Amazon.com

Just as his wife, Faith Hill, gets slicker and more hermetically sealed on each album, Tim McGraw reaches back on this record to a time-honored, if now rare, country music tradition--recording with his road band. Like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Merle Haggard before him, McGraw craved the artistic freedom and rawer sound he enjoyed with his road boys, and he was correct in thinking the Dancehall Doctors would leave their own honest stamp on the music, as well as a '70s rock & roll feel. Retreating to a studio in upstate New York, they recorded 15 keepers. Only one, a cover of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer," lands with a thud, as McGraw tries to duplicate John's vocal nuances and never takes control of the song. But elsewhere, he and the band are surprisingly emotional, soulful, and vulnerable. Together, they turn "Red Ragtop," a song about teen lovers who abort their child, into a universal lyric about choices and regrets, and fashion the two songs about revisiting the people and places that shape who you are ("Sing Me Home," "Home") into something profound. The album sags in spots, and McGraw and his coproducers misstep in adding faux R&B vocal washes here and there. But this is a good, solid effort to make music and not just the radio charts. --Alanna Nash

Tim's show in Feb '98 was my first country concert of my life, and ever since then, I have been a big fan of his. His newest cd is great! "She's My Kinda Rain" is a great love song, and "Red Ragtop" tells a great story that many people can actually relate to. Not to mention Tim's cover of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" is amazingly done! Only thing that can top it is the American Music Awards performance of the song as a duet with Tim and Elton. Another great song on the cd is "Real Good Man". "...when it comes to loving you, I've got velvet hands; I'll show you how a real bad boy can be a real good man..." That line just makes me melt. It sounds like he is singing his heart right to Faith. What a lucky woman she is! Ok, well, most of the cd has that same romantic idea. What a talented singer Tim is.

As a biased Tim McGraw fan...I just have to say that this is an extremely good album. If the next level of Tim's music is to have his road band record with him, then he needs to do it again and again. The album sounded amazing! There isn't a single song on this album that I don't like...and that's rare! My favorites are the love songs...I Know How to Love You Well and She's My Kind of Rain. Both very beautiful songs. Especially if you get to see Tim sing them in person. Aaaaah! He toys around with some 70's rock sounds on this album...especially with Illegal and Who Are They, and then of course with his rendition of Elton John's Tiny Dancer. He broaches the topic of abortion in Red Ragtop...but still manages to make it a beautiful song. The remaining songs are very classic Tim McGraw, but they sound so good with the Dancehall Doctors in the background. I think everyone needs to buy this album!

On the latest album from Tim Mcgraw, he shows everybody again that his music keeps getting better. Hes had so many great albums, and this one is among the best. As I write this its already been certified double-platinum, and its just getting started. When I first heard this, I loved it from the get-go. The opener, "Comfort Me", has such a earthy feel, and the lyrics behind this song is incredible. The song, "Tickin Away", I love that guitar, and the arrangements. It's something how theres 2 songs on this album that mention the word home in the song title. Well Tim Mcgraw feels right at home with this project, its evident. But he had a little help from his roadband the Dancehall Doctors, and recorded in a paradise setting. One of my favorites is, "Illegal", the intro is so cool. A song titled, "Who are they" bashes all the critics, and very well written. "Red Ragtop", I still consider to be in my top 3 favorites on this cd. Theirs so many potential big hits on this cd, that it must be difficult to pick the songs for radio. But after 19 number one singles, he will definently add to that, with this album. Tim Mcgraw is such on top of his game, that its like magic before your eyes, making a pot of gold. I have new albums by Shania, Faith Hill, and a few others, and this cd goes circles around those!
Besides this wonderful project, a book was put together to represent this. You can tell that Tim and his band had a blast making this, and I hope they try it again! So the book basically shows the process of making the record. The book and this cd need to be together, both of those things make this dynamite!

Tim's most recent album, Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors, shows his maturity from a long haired, hot kickin country rock singer to a soulful country music icon. Tim has always caught my heart with the soul that shone through his pop-tuned music from the beginning. Each of his albums has been better than the last, growing and maturing and becoming stronger in the country root. This latest collection includes a song that tells a story of a couple of high school sweethearts: story songs always have staying power, and "Red Ragtop" is no exception to the rule. Though controversy rose about a verse in the song, the listener should not focus on this verse alone; it is the story as a whole that gives the song its meaning. On this album, Tim also does a fabulous cover of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer"...staying true the the song yet making it his own. In "She's My Kind of Rain" and "All we ever Find" show that he hasn't lost his romantic feel, which is something that most of us love him for.
This album is his most country album yet, and I can't get enough of it. Tim's growth is apparent in this soulful album...and that makes it a Number One hit in my book!

Tim McGraw seems to be everywhere these days. Ever since he hit his stride with the success of his NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON album in 1994, he has grown more and more popular with country audiences alike. He achieved much success with his 1997 album EVERYWHERE, a trend that continued onto his A PLACE IN THE WORLD and SET THIS CIRCUS DOWN albums. Now Tim is back with one of his best sounding albums yet, TIM MCGRAW & THE DANCEHALL DOCTORS.
The album features 15 tracks, roughly 66 minutes of music. A generous helping from Tim. What makes this album special and separate from his past albums, is Tim recorded this album with his road band, the Dancehall Doctors. It gives it a more authentic sound, bringing a special sound to the songs. The Dancehall Doctors includes David Dunkley, Dean Brown, Bob Minner, John Marcus, Jeff McMahon, Denny Hemingson, Billy Mason, and Darran Smith.
There was a bit of controversy surrounding the albums first single "Red Ragtop", a song about abortion. I think it has a meaningful message about life, if you really listen to the honesty and integrity of the lyrics. His second single is the song "She's My Kind of Rain", which is a favorite of mine on here. Tim even manages to do a cover of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer", and does it justice!
There's a bit of everything here for McGraw fans. Some uptempo country (Home, Sleep Tonight, Illegal, etc), and some really nice ballads we've come to expect (Watch The Wind Blow By, I Know How To Love You Well, etc).
This is Tim's strongest effort yet. It is probably his most country sounding effort to date. The magic he has with his band is very apparant when listening to this CD, it sounds like they had a great deal of fun in the studio cutting this album. This transpires to good music overall, and once again Tim does not disapoint. This is definately worth picking up!
