Product Description

Still going strong and in remarkably fine voice after six decades of music making, Ray Price delivered the goods again on this 2002 gem featuring 12 tracks recorded in Nashville with some of the original musicians who played on Price's groundbreaking 1950s hits.

Amazon.com

By now it's a cliché to say that a great older singer's voice has mellowed like fine wine--but sometimes clichés are true, which is how they become clichés in the first place. Ray Price's solid-oak timbre and phrasing here suggest the experience and wisdom of a lounge singer while remaining stone country. Few others could do justice to the hard, complicated truths of "You Just Don't Love Me Anymore" or "If It's All the Same to You," and Price proves he's earned an overwrought lyric like the title song simply by undersinging it. Produced by Nashville veteran Fred Foster, featuring old-hand sidemen who played on Price's shuffling early hits, and even including three songs written by fellow Texan Cindy Walker, Time doesn't come across as nostalgic, but rather as the eloquent statement of a masterful artist who knows he's just not done quite yet, thank you. --John Morthland

Could it get better than this, the pure, hard-won, heart-breaking truths that true country music offers grown-ups?
Ray Price started out as a honkytonk singer and near-clone of Hank Williams, with whom he even roomed for a time in 1952. Over the next few years, however, he developed an original, rhythm-driven style that would virtually define country music in the later 1950s and 1960s. Then he moved on to a smooth, orchestral country-pop style which, truth be told, he did better than anybody since. But it's his small-group, honkytonk-shuffle music that will cement his reputation as one of the immortal country artists.
Over the past three decades he has occasionally returned to that style. Time, his latest, plays to Price's greatest strengths, starting with song selection. Price has always known the difference between a good song and the other stuff. The title tune, by Max D. Barnes, is a tour-de-force, a fierce, unsentimental look at time, "a monster that lives in our clocks/ It's heartless and shows no remorse..../ Like a beast in the jungle/ That devours its young." Except for Cindy Walker's good-natured Western-swing workout "Ft. Worth, Texas," the songs are dark, reflective, melancholy evocations of the toll time's passing and love's wounds inflict. There is the staggering "Both Sides of Good Bye," which will pierce the heart of any listener who's been there and who knows all too well what Price is singing about.
If Nashville music has turned into a vast Hallmark greeting card, Price's art is akin to the letter that remains after love has died ("Take Back Your Old Love Letters") or an adult's fatalistic resignation to faded love ("If It's All the Same to You"). Price tells these stories backed by a superb country band.

Ray Price has one of the greatest voices of all time, and this album is truly a treasure. It's traditional Country the way it should be done. Ray has surrounded himself with top-notch musicians here, including Buddy Emmons, Pete Wade, and Buddy Harman. I think this is Ray's best album in several years. I don't think there's a bad song on here. I highly recommend this album.

Like fine wine, the older Ray gets the better he sounds. From the first cut on this cd "YOU JUST DON'T LOVE ME ANYMORE" I knew this was gonna be another Ray Price masterpiece. He has a good mixture of songs that really stand out; like "TIME", BOTH SIDES OF GOODBYE", "IF IT'S ALL THE SAME TO YOU", "NO ONE BUT YOU', AND "THE NEXT VOICE YOU HEAR", is truly pure country music at it's best. The entire cd is a gem, backed up with some of the finest pickers, such as Buddy Emmons, Harold Bradley, Jimmy Capps, Pete Wade, and harmony vocals by Vince Gill. It just don't get any better than this. I play this cd everyday and I just don't get tired of listening to it. I sure hope he comes out with at least one more. A great combination : Ray Price and the Nashville "A" team to record the session. A must have album for any classic country fan, especially the Ray Price fans. Keep up the great work Ray. Nashville stars don't hold a candle to you. Guitar Bob

Ray Price is a giant of post-Hank country music, with a series of classics recorded in the fifties and sixties.
Already middle-aged, he scored a huge comeback crossover hit in the seventies with "For the Good Times".
He is now old and sagacious, and has cut a fabulous album, "Time."
It recalls his classic country style, but is enfused with the wisdom and perspective the years have brought to him.
Kind of like a country version of Sinatra's "September of my Years."
***** Highly recommended!

Just when you think you've heard Ray Price at his best ... along comes a CD complilation that proves again the fact "the man" is ageless when it comes to delivering a song in a manner that appeals to all.
"TIME", the title song, could very well be the best thing Price has warbled in over a decade. It's an outstanding, almost haunting song with "chilling" lyrics and a matching melody. Add the "Ray Price Treatment" and, to me, it projects near perfection. However, the fans of this super singer should not be surprised. Price is simply the "Master" when it comes to delivering a song with ease, depth and artistic control.
There are also 11 other tunes on this collection that make this one of the greatest CDs to come our way in some time.

Item arrived on time and in the condition specified by the seller.
Hey, what can say. It took me years to understand this mans God
given ability to be near perfect as any one voice could be. Now,
I am proud to say, I have most of his recordings. His younger years
were full of doubt in his voice .... it ended with the raw polished brass
emotion and honey drip'n richness only this man had.
He will be missed.

The timeless "TIME", finds RAY PRICE's VOCALS in fine, peak form and at the top of his game on this album. Though his handsome face has grown a bit ragged and weathered with the passage of time, age has NOT diminished his ability to sing and deliver among the finest vocals of his almost 60 year career as an entertainer[1948 to present]. This entire album speaks for itself, with one winning song after another, showcasing RAY's perfect melodic voice, which has only grown richer, more robust and more expressive than ever, as time has passed. Ah...but, beautiful! RAY PRICE is the definitive 'Frank Sinatra of Country Music'!
