Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Spin (1/00, p.127) - 9 out of 10 - "...daydream believin' and goofy good easy-flowing intimacy perfectly fitting the most lovably fun folkie since Bragg-Wilco's Woody Guthrie."

Entertainment Weekly (9/17/99, pp.80-1) - "...a character with enough self-depreciating charm to pull off just about anything. Trisha Yearwood, Emmylou Harris, Iris Dement, and five others share 16 songs with Prine...and it works splendidly..." - Rating: B+

Q (1/00, p.122) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Prine has chosen the most throat-lumpin' country tunes ever written, and treated them with the simplerespect and emotional honesty they deserve. If Hank Williams was still alive he'd buy this one and cry into his beer."

Dirty Linen (2-3/00, pp.74-5) - "...vintage country weepers recorded as duets with some of the most expressive of the current crop of country singers....This is a fun CD that shows that Prine can salute his musical lineage with both authenticity and tongue firmly in cheek."

Mojo (Publisher) (12/99, p.116) - "...reveals himself as an outstanding singer in the George Jones mould and the selection of duets is astute enough to offer honest charm and genuine sentiment without any of the sickly overkill of clichT....refreshingly natural."
