Product Description

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE

Amazon.com

Given their impact on generations of country, country-rock, and bluegrass acts, it's amazing the Louvins haven't had a modern tribute before. Unlike tribute albums that stumble through inconsistent performances and ill-matched material, this one soars, the selections well matched to the paired artists. Joe Nichols and Rhonda Vincent capture "Cash on the Barrelhead's" sassy humor. Emmylou Harris--who spearheaded the Louvin revival--and Rodney Crowell are relaxed on the Louvin hit "My Baby's Gone." Merle Haggard and the album's producer Carl Jackson capture the anguish of "Must You Throw Dirt in My Face." Glen Campbell and Leslie Satcher wring maximum passion from "When I Stop Dreaming." Obscure gospel tunes receive equally stellar treatment. "Keep Your Eyes on Jesus" teams Pam Tillis with Johnny Cash (handling the recitation) and the Jordanaires. Marty Stuart and Del McCoury establish the Louvins' bluegrass ties on "Let Us Travel, Travel On." By seamlessly blending traditional and modern Jackson's created a magnificent tribute that doubles as a fine introduction to the Louvins' earthy, breathtaking majesty. --Rich Kienzle

For years now, the hippest and most knowledgeable Acts in all areas of Country from AltCountry to Bluegrass and on down to all the Gram Parsons disciples have been mining the Louvin Brothers catalogue for a heart-breakingly beatiful ballad to add some authenticity to their take on the genre. While Parsons might have done it first, Emmylou Harris turned heads and melted hearts when she covered "If I could Only Win Your Love" early in her solo career and released it as a single. At that time (mid to late seventies) Country was moving away from Tradition and more towards handsome Studs in Stetsons, forgetting the timeless appeal of a wellcrafted tune just tailor-made for aching harmonies. Needless to say, Harris had a hit and it was not the first nor the last time that she reached deep into their Ouvre for something sublime. So, the question is... since The Louvins are so good, so cover-ready, why did it take all this time?
The answer is that the New Bluegrass revival that was well underway before OH BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU....utilized all that emerging talent just exploded with the national attention from the original soundrtrack and the followup... DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN. Now that "New"Grass has so many talented musicians who pay their daily respects to the history they have dusted off, shined up and offered up for our mutual enjoyement.... there are finally enough savvy music buyers to make this CD a winning proposition.
Now, the Louvin Brothers didn't write all their songs, but their distinctive harmonies remain a standard against which all duets should be measured. It was a standard Gram Parsons strove to meet when he searched for and found his perfect "Girl Singer" , Emmylou Harris.

The Louvin Brothers are one of the most influential country acts ever to appear in this wonderful music business. Their incredible harmony has influenced lots of people like for example Emmylou Harris, Everly Brothers and even The Beatles! This tribute-Cd to the hall of fame brothers is well overdue!!! I want to send a big thanks to producer Carl Jackson who really understand what was great about the Louvin's original versions of songs like "Keep Your Eyes On Jesus", "Are You Teasing Me" and "Must You Throw Dirt In My Face". But the stand out among the songs is easily Glen Campbell and Leslie Satcher's wonderful cover of "When I Stop Dreaming". And second is Merle Haggard with Carl Jackson on Bill Anderson's brilliant song "Must You Throw Dirt In My Face"...but actually there isn't a single bad song on this CD!!! If you intend to buy just one more record this year - then buy this one, you won't regret it!

I generally do not care for a lot of tribute albums. But after reading the other reviews written on this album, I decided to check the listing of artists performing on this album. And I was anxious to hear their renditions of these great songs so I bought it last week. THERE IS NOT ONE BAD SONG ON THIS ALBUM. I have already played it through at least 5 times in only 2 days.
I believe that Ira and Charlie Louvin were the first duo who really kept close harmony on their recordingss. The Everly Brothers came along later in the 50s, and took much of their phrasing and style from the Louvin Brothers.
Ira and Charlie would really be proud of what Carl Jackson did with this production. He has captured the essence of the Louvin Brothers perfectly. I hope that he produces a second volume of their work in the near future.

This was a difficult project for Carl Jackson to undertake. Many of us hold those old chestnuts by the Louvins, with their old scratches from the Opry broadcasts and the vinyl records, pretty seriously. Having others record them could border on sacrilege. And I wasn't too sure about this one when I heard the CD the first time. Especially when I heard -- GASP! -- the Brothers' own voice introducing the first song. Blasphemy, to trick us like that, Mr. Jackson! But the delivery of these songs is so clear and so pure that all the stock and trade Louvin flavor comes out: the tongue-in-cheek humor of "Cash on the Barrelhead," the anxious hope of "If I Could Only Win Your Love", the roller coaster emotions of a lover seeing his girl with another man in "I Don't Believe You Met My Baby"...and the surprise ending.
The choice of artists is superb. Johnny Cash is pleased, I know, that not only was his last earthly performance a gospel number, but one written by two gems in country writing. Merle Haggard, I understand, recorded "Must You Throw Dirt In My Face" in a hotel room with Jackson's recording equipment...the only way the two could meet up given Haggard's crazy schedule. You would not know that from the professionallism of the recording, but on the other hand it brings in the old Haggard train-hopper/trucker/ex-con persona. (Welcome home Merle!) The only ones who are not here are possibly those who are seen as glamorous now by the well-heeled crowd, but whose talents are propped up by a pop management team.
One song I hoped would be on this album wasn't: when I was a girl, my grandmother used to sing me to sleep with a song called "Cowboy Jack", written by the Louvins.
