When I read the liner notes, before playing the CD, something I never do as a rule, I was not that impressed and did not expect much. What a mistake to make. The rich melodious tones were already in place and although some of the songs were, in my opinion not up to scratch, the overall quality shines through.
A few of the tracks are rather dark and dismal, more suited to Scott Walker, than Rex Allen Jr, but others show a burgeoning country influence, particularly the 3 additional tracks, one written by Elton John. I got a surprise when I listened to track 12 - it was blank! Apparently this was left blank to separate the original 11 tracks of the album, "Today`s Generation", from the 3 bonus tracks.
If you are a Rex Allen Jr. fan, then this really is a must buy.
