"Great Collection - Great 2 Brand New Songs!"
on April 7, 2011
This is a great CD (14 songs) compilation by the talented legendary country duo The Judds, titled 'I Will Stand By You: The Essential Collection'. This great CD has 10 #1 country hits that have made The Judds a household name plus 2 beautiful brand new tracks (tracks 13 "I Will Stand By You" & 14, the closing track "Back Home"). The Judds re-united in 2009 : before that Wynonna went solo, had some personal challenges (problems with the father of her daughter & her overweight problem. But that is in the past & she is back on her feet again & the duo is as strong as ever!) "I Will Stand By You" : is a great new track (title track) with great melody, vocals & harmonies. "Back Home" is my favourite of the two new tracks : an exquisite ballad with beautiful guitar & vocals. The legendary Alison Krauss lends her beautiful vocals with the duo in this track, a wonderful track! Most fans will/may already have the 'old' remaining 12 tracks : they are a great representation of The Judds's legendary musical career including the classics "Love Can Build A Bridge", "Flies On The Butter(You Can't Go Home Again)", "Young Love(Strong Love)", "Grandpa(Tell Me Bout The Good Old Days)", "Girls Night Out" & "Why Not Me". On overall, this is a great CD compilation, but most of The Judds's fans will/may have most of the 12 'old' tracks. The 2 brand new tracks are great, a highly recommended CD listening.
