5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome bluegrass-country album!, July 5, 2008
This review is from: Sweet Temptation (Audio CD)
Along with the 1980 "Skaggs & Rice" album, this 1979 masterpiece is probably Ricky Skaggs' finest, sweetest album, packed with bouncy, jovial covers of great melodic oldies such as Lester Flatt's "I'll Stay Around," Merle Travis's "Sweet Temptation," and a jaunty run-through of a bluesy old Carter Family song, "I Know What It Means To Be Lonesome." And then there's the utterly heartbreaking, incandescent "Could You Love Me One More Time," which gives a hint to the kind of heartsong gems that Skaggs would record in his surprising second act as a Top 40 hitmaker. "Sweet Temptation" is a real high point for traditionally-oriented musicmaking, a genuine Americana classic. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Country Music Guide)
