Product Description

Produced and accompanied by Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore here performs a collection of songs introduced to him by his late father as he was growing up in Lubbock, Texas. Most of the songs were written and/or made popular by classic country artists such as Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizell, Johnny Cash, Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow and Ray Price. Jimmie makes each song his own with the same soulful, timeless delivery which has made him an American treasure since his early days with The Flatlanders. He says of the selection, "These songs are simple, well-crafted, unpretentious little gems from a wonderfully creative period in American commercial music. My father passed his love of these songs on to me, and although I went on to embrace many other styles and influences I never lost my deep feeling for the music that I associate with him." Tracks: Pick Me Up On Your Way Down / Saginaw, Michigan / Standin’ On The Corner (Blue Yodel No. 9) / Don’t Let the Stars Get In Your Eyes / Four Walls / I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive / Walking The Floor Over You / I’m Movin’ On / Don’t Worry ’Bout Me / Train of Love / Jimmie Brown The Newsboy / Gotta Travel On / Peace In The Valley. Also available: ONE ENDLESS NIGHT (ROUCD3173), The Flatlanders: MORE A LEGEND THAN A BAND (ROUCDSS34).

This was love on first play for me. I confess to being a long-time devotee of Jimmie Dale Gilmore, but even I have found some of his more recent recordings to be a little patchy. This, however, is one of those albums that makes songs you've never heard before sound familiar, and songs you know well sound like new. Perhaps the fact that this is a tribute to his Fender-playing father accounts for the feeling with which Jimmie's soaring voice embraces the lyrics (though he can do no wrong for me, as far as vocals go!). As a collection, the songs sit together beautifully - they include tracks recorded by artists such as Johnny Cash, Lefty Frizzell, and Hank Williams to name a few. My own ever-changing favourites include Saginaw, Michigan (you don't get rhymes like these anymore!) and Standin' on the Corner which I recognise from an earlier recording of Jimmie's. On the whole I'd say that what binds the songs is a common "attitude" often characterised by gentle humour and a respect for the simpler things in life. Not one song that will make me fumble for the Skip button though - thoroughly recommended!

Jimmie Dale Gilmore has recorded an album of country standards and breathed new life into every track. The backing musicians are on top form and everyone seems to be having a great time performing these terrific songs. The sleeve notes give an indication of why and the enthusiasm of all those involved is obvious.

Loved One Endless Night and this cd took a bit of getting used to as the content and style is so different. Played it in car to & fro for abt a week and am now humming amongst others Saginaw Mitchigan
Not the best thing Jimmie has done but definately worthy listening to.

a loving tribute to Jimmie Dale's father 4 Sept. 2005
By Autonomeus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the latest fantastic album from Jimmie Dale Gilmore, the only kind I've heard, and I've heard them all! COME ON BACK is a "memorial and tribute to my father," says Gilmore -- "it consists of songs that he particularly loved." There are 13 tracks here, and every one is a gem. Joe Ely produced, and the musicianship is incredible, with Chris Searles on drums, Gary Herman on bass, Eamon McLoughlin on fiddle, Robbie Gjersoe on all manner of guitar, Jimmie Dale on acoustic guitar, Joe Ely on various and sundry, and of course Jimmie Dale's unbelievable voice.

Here's a little of what Gilmore says about his father, Brian Gilmore, who recently died of ALS (amyotropic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease): "My dad was not a materialistic man. He was unimpressed by fancy houses, stylish clothing, expensive automobiles, or any of the other trappings of our status-conscious society. The drive to seek power, prestige and wealth was not part of his makeup." And he goes on to describe his father's deep love of music, and his singing and guitar playing.

Several of the songs reflect the attitude Jimmie Dale describes -- "Pick Me Up on Your Way Down," "Saginaw, Michigan," and "Jimmie Brown the Newsboy" in particular contain a perspective sympathetic to working people and disdainful of the haughty wealthy class. The only song on the album that I am personally familiar with is "Gotta Travel On," which I recognize from my childhood, and I have no idea where I heard it or whose version, but it brings back pleasant memories:

"I've layed around and played around this old town too long -- summer's almost gone and winter's coming on. I've layed around and I've played around this old town too long and I feel like I've gotta travel on."

Jimmie Dale says his favorite is the Hank Williams tune "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive," a wry truth if there ever was one, and I can see why -- I think I might agree. The best line is when the protagonist inherits from an uncle "quite a batch," and then "one fateful day a lawyer proves I was never born, but only hatched." Other highlights are "Don't Let the Stars Get In Your Eyes," which the band takes at a breakneck pace, the Hank Snow tune "I'm Movin' On," the Johnny Cash tune "Train of Love," and of course the beautiful closer "Peace in the Valley," in which the lion lies down with the lamb, a vision of peace.

Jimmie Dale Gilmore is one of my favorite artists -- COME ON BACK deepens my love of his music and stands with his finest records!

He Ain't Hank but He Is Jimmie Dale 6 Dec. 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Those reviewers who lament that Jimmie isn't adding any new dimensions to these songs are missing the point. This is back porch music, not made for revelation but for pure enjoyment. While I find Jimmie's records to be a bit uneven, this album is almost pure strength and warmth. Joe Ely's production is occasionally a bit sanitary for my tastes (ex: Flatlanders' "Now Again") but this time he hit the bullseye. Highly recommended!

JDG's The Man! 23 Aug. 2005
By Thomas Unangst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I would have to agree with the reviewer that called this CD a Masterpiece. Country/Folk/Alternative just doesn't get any better than this. There is absolutely no "filler" on this CD. Each of these songs stand on their own. Some of the songs are inspirational, some thought provoking, and some just plain addicting. I've "auditioned" this CD for friends of mine who would never be caught dead with a "Country" title in their CD player - and they were all hooked! And did I mention that JDG has a killer voice? This is one sweet CD.

Feeling things through 25 Aug. 2005
By Paul Montag - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jimmie Dale Gilmore cd's have always treated me fine, and sometimes his songs sound better during one listen than they do the next. For example, I picked up 'Come on Back' this past Sunday afternoon and couldn't wait to put it into my car cd player. And, yeah, it sounded good. But the next night, when the moon was up, as I was driving down the road, the second listen filtered its way deeply into my nervous system, calmed and warmed me, and got me dancin' in my car during certain songs as I was experiencing this album in ways I do not with many other albums I own. It vibrates with spirit and attitude and the more I hear it the more hypnotic it becomes. There's no way this could be back-up music for me since it is most enjoyed when I'm practically focusing in on it, concentrating.

There are so many good things about it, from the choice of covers to the musicianship to the awesome production by Joe Ely. I'm not always thinking of how an album was produced when I'm listening to it, but the job was done so wonderfully (to help the listener enjoy the music more) here that I was constantly thinking about it. And it did the opposite of taking me away from the music; it drew me in even deeper.

The harmonizing vocals along with the excellent musicianship gave me overpowering 'tingly' feelings on a numer of these tunes. I simply love the guitar and bass grooving in and out of each other after the first two verses of 'Train of Love.' And the range of vocal hooks in songs like 'Standin' on the Corner,' 'Walkin' the Floor Over You,' and 'Gotta Travel On' are, again, sometimes the cause of making my body sway in relaxed, yet excited fashion, and there's a freedom in the mind that goes right on with all this. It's joyful.

How much you like this album may or may not depend on how much you like Jimmie Dale's country honk as compared to his more spiritual, blissful compositions (most notably on Spinning Around the Sun, Braver Newer World (my overall favorite of his) and One Endless Night). The tunes have a dirtier country sound but it still is produced so crisply that, along with Jimmie's voice, it equates to the deep vibes of his more other-earthly tunes.

And this mixture of (oftentimes on 'Come on Back') rock-n'-roll-rhythm-driven country and his spiritual approach make for a listen that is, literally, out of this world.
