Vern does for country what Clapton does for rock, what Tower of Power does for horns, and what Aretha does for soul. Play this CD and you'll hear Gosdin completely and absolutely define country music. Like gospel, the unashamed honesty of this music carries an exhilirating emotional freight - play it through twice and you'll be singing along whether you know the words or not - with music like this, you'll be singing from remembered feelings - from the deep, univeral wellspring of being human and being old enough to have truly loved and lost. A true country gem that is worth every penny of the purchase price - every track is great and the title track is among the all time country top ten. If you like George Jones, you'll love Vern.
Vern Gosden in my opinion is one and was one of the greatest singers there ever was. I can sit for hours and listen to his gospel and country. You will never regret buying one of his CD'S or DVD'S. He will be sorely missed. GOD BLESS YOU VERN AND MAY GOD KEEP YOUR SOUL WITH HIM.
I didn't know Vern Gosdin had done anymore recording since his stroke around 92'.I recently found here at Amazon while looking up Davis Ball and Marty Raybon--that Vern had almost a new record every 14 months since 98.(Country Music Magazine did a dis-service by not letting us know this- before they went out of business .)> Vern combines soul,anguish,heartache and all kinds of feelings into his songs that are so smooooth-you cannot help but feel every emotion and want more. Happily- now-, I own every thing he's done(thru Amazon). If you go to his web-site you can vote for him for CMA Hall of Fame---long over due. Sheila Richardson
