5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent traditional country, California style 20 Jan 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Heather, one of many great country singers from California, is a passionate, soulful singer-songwriter who sticks (at least on this album) to a solid, traditional country sound albeit with other influences. Those influences, limited as they are, are from rockabilly and R+B rather than mainstream pop. Heather wrote ten of the twelve songs here, the exceptions being the covers of Kiss an angel good morning (Charley Pride) and I'll be there if you ever want me (Ray Price) - the latter song was also a major country hit for Gail Davies in the eighties.
Heather's own songs are outstanding, including You're gonna love me one day (about a man who doesn't love her - yet), No one is gonna love you better (a duet with Merle Haggard), Mr Lonesome (about a man who isn't very good company) and Who did you call darling (about an unfaithful man).
Pete Anderson, Dwight Yoakam's producer, plays lead guitar on this album, which certainly should appeal to most of Dwight's fans although the music here has less of a rock influence than most of Dwight's albums. As such, this will appeal to those die-hard traditionalists who feel that Dwight is not for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional Country at its best 12 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Myles has a distintive country twang and delivers her songs with great emotion. Her duet with Merle Haggard is nothing short of outstanding and she clearly holds her own with this country great. Myles has been clearly influenced by Wynette and Lynn and this selection of songs pay homage to these legends. Wynette could have easily sung Broken heart for Sale and Lynn could have delivered Who did you Call Darlin' with tremedous guts. This album is a must for anyone who likes their country with bite and prefer the likes of Lee Ann Womack and the Dixie Chicks to LeAnn Rimes and Shania Twain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bakersfield Country Alive and Kicking 17 Jan 2000
By William W. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are several commercial "schools" of country music. One of them is the Nashville Sound that rose to pre-eminence with its crooners, background singers, strings and lush, syrupy arrangements. Another was the Texas Swing school, which gave birth to the Austin sound of Waylon and Willie. But my favorite of the competing schools of country was the so-called Bakersfield Sound. Two of its most famous members were Buck Owens (in his pre-Hee Haw days) and Merle Haggard in his Capitol Records years. The sound was harder, twangy-er and more band-oriented than the music being played "back east".
I always liked this sound best. And as a teenager at a New England prep school, I collected all the early Buck Owens and Merle Haggard records as they came out on Capitol. Later, Buck and (to a lesser extent) Merle got co-opted by Nashville. But the sound and spirit lived on. Buck Owens had a great band, fronted by vocal harmonies of Don Rich. Merle Haggard's Strangers produced a sound so distinctive you could recognize it after about two bars. And Bonnie Owens provided a harsh harmony with Merle that stood in stark contrast to the Jordanaires harmonies that backed Nashville tracks.
Heather Myles does this music better than anyone else today. And she makes it fresh and contemporary, never nostalgic. And while she probably wouldn't want to characterize herself as a proponent of the Bakersfield School of Music, she has all the ingredients that make this music so great. If you want to get a completely different take on country music than you'll get from, say, Reba MacIntyre, you really ought to give a listen to Heather Myles. She's terrific.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where is the justice? 11 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
We live in a world like hacks like Shania Twain and Garth Brooks rule the "country" charts with their painfully clinched, and utterly contrived songs, and genuine and startling talents like Heather Myles, Iris DeMent, and Kelly Willis, struggle to get heard. Well hear this disc people, it is a stunner.
Blessed with a voice that'll knock your socks off, Myles sings ten songs she wrote or co wrote, and throws in two covers for good measure. Not a moment is wasted. The fact that commercial country radio ignores such great cuts like "You're Gonna Love Me One Day" and "True Love" just goes to show that there is no justice in the music world these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Country Queen 9 Aug 2001
By Meathook Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Someday it just might happen. Someday you could tune in to a country station or perhaps CMTV and actually hear some country music, real country music. On her third studio album (she's also got a killer live CD as well) Heather Myles dishes out more of the real thang, and it's my favorite to date. Her first was released seven years ago, and she's still not a houshold name, to the great shame of the industry. Though there are a very few uncompromising women making this kind of music ( Joy Lynn White and Lee Ann Womack spring to mind ), most of what emanates from Nashville is pop. Yes, I suppose Shania has talent, but it has precious little to do with country music. But on this disc you can find a hefty dose of heartache and steel guitar. Yep, and she writes 'em all herself to boot. Clever but meaningfull lyrics intermingle with authentic, tearjerkin' playing. She has a wonderful duet with Mr.Country; Merle Haggard "No One Is Gonna Love You Better" and she holds her own and then some. It's an instant classic. "Who Did You Call Darlin'" is a nice tex-mex number with the requisite button accordian (no credit given for some reason...zat you Flaco?). Scott Joss and Pete Anderson from Dwight Yoakum's band are on hand with some tasty fiddle playing and guitar work repectively. The songs all have a hook, but not the inane crapola you hear on the radio. She really is the sweetheart of the rodeo, and my absolute fave since she burst onto the scene in 1992. Another highpoint is the only non-original: Charlie Pride's megahit "Kiss An Angel Good Morning" and, even as a major Pride fan, I have to say I like this one even more. Her superb voice is distinct, and finds a home "right quick". "Broken Heart For Sale" is as moving as anything Loretta or Emmylou have ever come out with, and that's surely saying something. It all sounds effortless in the way only a major talent can make it seem. When we look back on this period of country music, Heather Myles will undoubtedly loom large with the handfull of standout artists that were....well, artists. Nobody does it better. My only complaint is my standard one; at thirty seven minutes it could be longer. But that means that you'll be hungry for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Honky Tonk sound reminescent of the 50's 4 Jan 1999
By D. M. Prince - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a 63 year old country music fan, I can say that I have lived through them all; the good and the bad. I do not enjoy most of the modern "hot country" singers, probably because of my age. Heather Myles, however, is one young singer who can do it all; the "hot" and the older honky tonk sounds. "Highways and Honky Tonks" is a great effort; Heather's voice rings with a sincerity which indicates a depth which most of the current crop of country ladies cannot fathom. Her backup on this CD is also top drawer, even including some California dude named "Merle Haggard" on "No One's Gonna Love You Better." Don't miss this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Original country sound, not heard with today's music stars! 27 Jun 2002
By Rizzo {。^◕◕^。} - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Anymore, you don't hear traditional country music, it is feathered with pop, the women in country are "gorgeous" and it's that image that makes it way into mainstream USA. But somewhere in 1992, Heather Myles arrived. She carries a voice of solid old country, strums that guitar and sings the music that isn't "cool" anymore.
Heather missed her calling. Essentially, she belonged with the Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette era. But in 1992 when she arrived, it was the pretty boys who garnered the attention, the Vince Gills, Alan Jacksons, Clint Blacks, etc. etc. Music videos were hot, country music was all about "looks" and rarely about the roots of country and folk that inspired many.
If you relish the "old country sounds", of living, loving and leaving, crying in your beer-type songs, listen to Heather Myles. She stands on her own, pens her own lyrics and can sing with the best. I love the duet with Merle Haggard "No One is Going to Love You Better". But it was a music video that I happened to record one night, "True Love", and I managed to get three quarters of it and mildly astounded! It was like nothing I had heard from a woman in a long time. That inspired me to hear more and the entire CD was impressive for a newcomer, unique throaty deep voice, and musically real old country.
Here, a variety of sounds appear, honky tonk, danceable tunes, slower ballads, classic sounds. If you like old country, try Heather Myles... MzRizz.
