A well done tribute to real country music 11 Jan 2004
By Teako Johnson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a excellent cd . I can put it on and never have to skip one track . That's a rarity now days .
Standout songs include : 'Til I can make it on my own , Cold Cold Heart, Mama Tried , but the best song on here is The Three Bells . The bass on this song will pure shake the room .Allison Krauss may have even surpass the original by The Browns. Gone out of my mind sounds as if it were written when country was country not this pop country we have now.
I miss the traditional sound of country music . I have quiet a few traditional country music albums ,and the music represented here would fit right in .
Same old train closes this cd out in fine fashion .It has 13 diffrent singers and musicians including Emmylou Harris & Merle Haggerd himself . This CD was dedicated to the late Tammy Wynette and is a wonderful tribute to the music she did for so many years. I dissagree with the other reviewers who say this is a marketing scheme . It is far from it . It is a loving tribute to a long gone form of music that I sorely miss. If you are a lover of traditional music then please get this one .

A slightly woozy notion of "tradition" has some success 23 Jan 1999
By hyperbolium - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Twelve great artists of today! Twelve classic songs of yesterday! Putting aside the hint of self-congratulatory back-patting and slightly woozy notion of "tradition," a great singer plus a great song still equals a great spin, and this disc features several.
Alison Krauss' lush-yet-wafer-thin vocals are so perfectly matched to The Browns' "The Three Bells," that the original nearly disappears in her wake. Randy Travis' cover of Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" won't make you forget The Hag, but will remind you of the greatness of both singers and the song they share. On the picker's side, Chet Atkins, Vince Gill and Mark Knopfler embroider Mary Chapin Carpenter's "Oh, Lonesome Me," in a superb display of guitar playing.
Two new tracks, including an all-star jam penned by Marty Stuart, link the traditional form to the current milieu. Guests include Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam, Pam Tillis, Merle Haggard, Earl Scruggs and more. Overall, a nice tip of the cowboy hat.
Wonderful Tribute to Real Country 6 May 2007

Format: Audio CD
I heard "Gone Out Of My Mind" on the radio almost 10 years ago and never forgot it, and was never able to find out what album it was on until recently. My mom and I both loved the traditional sound and were looking forward to hearing it again on the radio. Alas, we only heard it the one time, and it has stuck with both of us all these years. That was 1998 and I finally found it! I have enjoyed this CD immensely and there are several tracks that are just spectacular.

Whatever happened to Doug Stone?

The spirit of the late great Ray Price hovers over this CD, both in the excellent cover art and in the music itself, where the imperishable Ray Price Shuffle is perpetuated by a typical 90s lineup of country neotraditionalists, all excellent. Some thought actually went into this production; it is most definitely not a random compilation of Sony contractees reimagining classic country repertoire.

The best performances here fully live up to the intelligence inherent in the concept. The Dixie Chicks' gutsy cover of "Stand by your man" reminds us that this is in fact a proud feminist anthem, and Martina McBride--our most consistently reliable neotraditionalist--really nails Tammy's "Til I can make it on my own" quite sublimely. Trace Adkins impressively scales the operatic heights of "I never go around mirrors," the underrated Wade Hayes hits the jackpot with "She's actin' single," and Rick Trevino compellingly channels Ray Price with "City lights." Finally, there's the jubilant all-star jam on "Same old train."

The track list and A&R work alone make this release self-recommending. You'll not be disappointed.
Did Hank really not do it this way? 23 Dec 2009
By B. Clay Shannon - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I like these kinds of albums, because they always turn me on to some artist I'd been previously unfamiliar with. In this case, it's Lefty Frizzell via Trace Adkins.

Randy Travis does a great job on Haggard's "Mama Tried," as does Mary Chapin Plumber on Hank Williams'/Don Gibson's "Oh, Lonesome Me."

I also like Collin Raye's interpretation of "Cold, Cold, Heart," where his approach and phrasing is sort of a combination of Lucinda Williams and Glenn Frey.

A reprise would be nice, with Dwight Yoakam (Buck Owens), George Strait (Bob Wills), Brad Paisley (Jimmie Rodgers or Johnny Cash), and Clint Black (Merle Haggard) making appearances.
