Product Description

Product Description

2013 studio album from the Country icon. You Can t Make Old Friends proves once again that he still has plenty to say. The album reunites Rogers with long-time friend and collaborator, Dolly Parton, for a brand new duet on the title track, "You Can t Make Old Friends." It was over thirty years ago when Kenny and Dolly released "Islands In The Stream, " which went on to become an instant classic and one of the most successful singles by a duo in history. With a collaboration of producers, including Kyle Lehning, Warren Hartman, and Dann Huff, You Can t Make Old Friends is Rogers first Country album since the release of Water & Bridges in 2006. Rogers considers this release the most varied and complete album of his lifetime. The album showcases a certain familiarity that can be expected from Rogers, along with fresh twists of creativity that see the versatile Grammy Award-winner stretching his artistry into new musical territory. In addition to the great story songs and love songs Rogers has become well known for, flavors of Rock 'n' Roll, Soul, Gospel, Southern Rock, Zydeco and sounds of the Southwest are embraced in this bold recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Gold From A Silver Fox 12 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
Looking good Mr Rogers and bejaysus but you're still sounding good too!
Your music has been a good friend for a significant slice of my life; in
fact ever since you entreated Ruby not to take her heart to town in 1969!
'You Can't Make Old Friends' is a glorious gift given to us in the golden
Autumn of his career. A fine batch of songs, beautifully sung with a voice as
warm and rich as polished burr walnut at the bottom and with the rock-steady
power and certainty of an ox-drawn plow at the top. A instrument which both
deserves and demands continued respect (come to think of it his old friend
Glen Campbell is still doing a grand job too, railing against the passing of
the years and the tough stuff that life can throw at you. Do please listen to
his most recent album 'See You There' too and read RoB's definitive review!)

This is as fine a bunch of tunes as Mr Rogers has ever delivered. Kicking off
with the title track 'You Can't Make Old Friends', a delightful duet with
Dolly Parton (still warbling away impressively on all six cylinders!), it's
hard to imagine that things could possibly get better still but they do. This man
has always known how to tell a story in song and there are more than a few great
ones in this collection. Perhaps best among is them the tragically poignant
'You Had To Be There', whose bitter narrative of lost opportunity and a
life gone bad cuts like a knife. 'Dreams Of The San Joaquin', however, comes
a very close second with it's words of hardship and hope and sublime chorus.

I bought this album recently and adore it.

The 3rd track 'You Had To Be There' is now near the top of my list of favourite Kenny Rogers songs - beautiful, sad, life-lessons all in a few short minutes.

I would certainly recommend it.
