5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album from 1975 22 Mar 2014
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For this album, Rose and her sister-in-law Alta rote three original songs including the title track, also featuring covers of Pass me by (the breakthrough country hit for Johnny Rodriguez and eventually also a country hit for Janie Fricke), My Tennessee mountain home) and Willie's winter love (credited as written by Merle Haggard, but which I've heard by Dottie West).

This is the sort of album I've come to expect and want from Rose Maddox, oozing enjoyment and fun. I wouldn't claim (as some do) that this is Rose's best album, but Rose maintained a consistently high standard throughout her career.

If you are already a Rose Maddox fan, you won't be disappointed by this album. If you're not already a fan, then I'd recommend starting with America's Most Colorful Hillbilly Band, but there's a lot to like about this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece 21 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
If I had to take only one Rose Maddox album to the proverbial desert island, this would be it. I love her early raucous work with her (many!) wild brothers, and her many great rockabillies and ballads for Capitol and King Records. But this one has a particular fascination; every song is a winner, and Rose is at the peak of her powers as a dramatic, rather fearless singer, working emotional terrain with absolute authority like few other female country singers. Here she covers themes of spirituality ("Gathering Flowers for the Master's Bouquet"), celebration (the best version ever of "My Tennessee Mountain Home"), love and longing ("It's Been a Long Long Time").

Best of all is "Mr. Jackson," a subtle, ultimately wrenching tale of a loose-living woman who discovers the daughter whose father she wasn't sure of, and who she neglected, grows up to be the exactly the kind of "good-time girl" as her mother, even luring strangers into her web with the identical strategy: "I'd look all around for a fancy-dressed man with a fair-sized diamond ring. Put on a look that was older than me, walk right up to him. I'd touch his arm with the palm of my hand making sure it was soft and warm. I'd swallow my pride and my Sunday school learning and sweetly say to him, I'd say 'Mr. Jackson how you been? I haven't seen you for a long long time..." This song also appears, I believe, on Rose's album Queen of the West. But this is the version to get.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for all the wrong reasons 14 Aug 2009
By E. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because I wrote "Mr. Jackson", one of the songs on the album. I had heard the recording but wanted to have it in my collection. When the album arrived I found that I had gotten due credit on the album cover but the digital track information credited the song to Eddie Miller. That said....

This is a pretty good recording, overall. Rose was a powerful singer and a powerful individual, and that came across. There are some excellent songs on the album including a Hoyt Axton composition, the production was good and there were sporadic bursts of brilliance in the musicianship.

If you would like to hear a Country Music legend produced in a Country/Bluegrass context, you might very well enjoy this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars LATER IN THE CAREER--BUT A GREAT THROWBACK TO HER EARLY, STRONG YEARS 11 Dec 2013
By CV - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is still the Rose Maddox of the Columbia years in voice and repertory even though later than the Capitol years, which I personally feel, after one audition of the "The One Rose--the Capitol Years," represent a decline of sorts. I tend to see her best work in collaboration with her brothers. (The Capitol recordings, I feel, suffer at the very least from weak material, not what you come to expect after the preceding years with her fine siblings. Rose commented once that Capitol never gave her material to record, which threw her on her own resources. These might not have been of the best. But this album, late as it comes, is exciting listening. CWV
