An undoudtedly great value for money double disc release. The 2 discs present JDL as a singer on disc#1 and a writer on disc#2.

I have to say that his singing is of the level of performance you might need to make a demo of a song and it seems to me that that is what for the main part disc#1 is, passable without being earth-shattering. I don't play it too much.

However disc#2 is a wonderful cross section of the guy's writing talents. Some well-known and hit material, while others ought to have sold better. I bought the set for a clean copy of Jimmy C. Newman's 'Grin And Bear It' which I lost on an MGM single all but 40 years ago - and it was worth it for that alone. The Marvin Rainwater track 'Pale Face Indian' achieved some deserved chart success when one-man band Don Fardon re-vamped it into 'Lament of The Cherokee Indian'. The 32 tracks are as varied as you could wish for, from pseudo-death disc 'Ebony Eyes' to syrupy pop 'Norman' via the straight country of 'Heaven Fell Last Night'. This disc spends a lot of time on my deck/iPod.

Rush-released since Nicky Minaj's rather surprising admission that she grew up listening to Loudermilk on her grandfather's grammaphone, this is now a 2CD set rather than the single CD of the same name which came out in 2010. More milk for your dollar is never a bad thing, and although the quality diminishes the further one delves into this set, there are plenty of milky gems of interest to wash down your cereal with.
Lest we forget, this is the man who inspired both Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction and Christopher Cross of Christopher Cross fame to pick up their respective axes. With this collection we can rest assured that Rock's demise is alot further off than has previously been advertised.

Exellent album for an introduction to Loudermilks wide range of writing
and singing along with some of the many artists who recorded
his material.

Is there anyone who remembers the broadcast on Radio Luxembourg in 1950 from 1960?
Well, Angela Jones song is often played there, one presenter, perhaps
Barry Alldis hummed with the rapporteur on this great track.
