I have had a tape of this for years but just had to buy it when it got re- released on CD as I'd worn the tape out.

I was lucky enough to see Steve, Emmy Lou Harris and The Del McCourry Band when they came to London to promote this and it was one of my favourite concerts ever and I have seen a few!

I'm not really a full time country or bluegrass fan, I just know classs when I hear it. Steve set out to write a bunch of songs that would be played every night somewhere in the world, long after he'd shuffled off. Well personally I think he may well have achieved it. I certainly have played this album at least once a month ever since it came out. It's in my all time top 10 and I have thosands of records in most genres.

The playing and recording is top notch, the songs are top notch and so is this review.

So a big thumbs up then!

This is one of the best "dance" albums ever. Bar none. From infant to grandparent I defy anyone not to at least tap their toes if not get up and make complete fools of themselves on the dance floor or in living rooms as they jig to a marriage made in heaven. Earle and the gang are so obviousy enjoying themselves that I am only sorry that this is not twice the length.

Sublime!

This album harks back to his early work and I love it. Old 'folksy' type songs which are easy to listen to.

By GlynLuke TOP 100 REVIEWER on 20 Jan. 2013

The wonderful title song from this 1999 album by the very fine Steve Earle was covered by the late and much lamented Levon Helm on his penultimate record Dirt Farmer, but Earle's many songs are coveted by other singers, and that's no surprise as they`re - well, so singable.
This is a bit different from most other Earle albums, being a celebration of his beloved bluegrass music - as well as a tribute to bluegrass legend Bill Monroe - and consequently gives the listener a damn good time while listening to fourteen superb songs over 46 rich and surprisingly varied minutes.
There's no point in trawling through each track, but one or two deserve singling out. Before I'd scrutinised the song listings, a song came on called I'm Still In Love With You, a duet with none other than one of my favourite singers (in any genre) Iris De Ment, she of the haunting, plaintive voice like no other. She really is a tremendous singer, passionate, earthy, unique. Earle is to be heard with female singers gratifyingly often, and he and Iris make a complementary couple. Besides, any chance to hear Ms De Ment makes my day.
Other guests on the album include - surprise, surprise - Emmylou Harris, and the similarly ubiquitous Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, as well as legendary dobro player Jerry Douglas, and singers John Hartford and Marty Stuart - all to be heard on the excellent final song, Pilgrim.
The one constant throughout is The Del McCoury Band, who back Steve beautifully, his raspy, lazily urgent vocals given just the right backdrop against which to shine. Their playing is both easeful and joyous.
I'm finding this is an album I want to hear a lot.
