BBC Review

When they say, “Here’s to George and Tammy, Dolly and Porter, Johnny and June...” you know that the husband-and-wife duo of Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish, are tipping their Stetsons in a no-holds-barred homage to the country greats who, as the legends and the records have it, fight like cats and dogs only to fall back in love all over again.

Weston King has plenty of form in this area – not only as a member of 90s British alt-country early adopters The Good Sons, but also as a writer whose songs have enjoyed nods of approval from luminaries like Townes Van Zandt and The Byrds’ Chris Hillman. Despite being brought up in the decidedly un-country setting of downtown Southport, Weston King’s long-term love affair with Americana hasn’t just helped him pay his dues. It’s imbued him with a musical accent that makes him remarkably indistinguishable from the real thing.

Opener By a Thread is a prime example of top-notch writing that is utterly convincing. Meticulously constructed, with chords that wryly allude to Glen Campbell and Bobbie Gentry’s All I Have to Do Is Dream, Weston King and Dalgleish’s honeyed harmonies possess a careworn resignation that seeps into every pore of the song. With this, and several other heartbreakers and in-their-cups confessionals, you’d swear blind this album’s cuts are lifted straight from the pages of some long-lost country songbook.

With a wealth of subtle and understated performances by the supporting cast, including wistful flourishes from pianist Geraint Watkins, whose on-the-money keyboards have graced albums by Nick Lowe and Van Morrison, this is no unthinking pastiche or smirking parody. Often the pair trade recriminations and play the blame game across alternating verses; yet a closer inspection of the lyrics reveal that Weston King is clearly having a ball with his damned-if-you-do-or-don’t observations: “If we could only spend more time apart / I’m sure that we could find out what we had at the start.”

There is a simple rule for an album to be a stone classic - every track must unquestionably be first rate, nothing duff, no fillers.
"How Do You Plead" fills that requirement - it is very rarely achieved.
All of these marvellous songs were written by Michael for duet singing. The lyrics are clever, bringing a smile every so often. Example - In 100,000 words, Michael sings: "I'm taking back the promises that I had made to you" Lou, in response: "The words you spoke never meant much anyway. For every truth you told to me, a lie wasn't far away" Ouch!

Definitley a strong contender for album of the year. Don't hestitate. If you enjoy real country music, buy this immediately!

Faantastic album by a British duo featuring original material. The musicians on the album are also great. In all well worth the money. I would highly recommend this album to anyone. I purchased it without having heard any of the tracks and have no regret,every song is great.

This is just wonderful. Traditional country harmonies, could be straight out of Nashville, sung by a talented British couple. What's not to like!

I have been travelling to watch MWK perform his great songs for a number of years and am bemused that he is not more recognised for both his writing and singing. He has written many great songs and always delivers his own songs as well as those very carefully selected from the catalogues of fellow songsmiths such as Townes Van Zandt and Tim Hardin with sensitivity and passion.

I feel that after all these years as a troubadour, travelling the length and breadth of the UK, Ireland and the Continent his time has come. This album, performed with a cracking Hot Band and peerlessly accompanied by Lou Dalgleish is his best ever. The singing on the duets stands comparison with George and Tammy, Emmylou and Gram and other greats. Lou's voice is so clear and expressive and complementary to Michael's strong tones that they sing so beautifully together.

This is a classic in the making and highly recommended to thsoe who love real music played by real people.

What a fantastic album! There have been some great country releases this year but it's marvellous to see a collection of the quality of this being released by a UK artist.

I've been aware of Michael Weston King's music but only know his duet patrner Lou Dalgleish from the fact that she did a show as a female Elvis Costello! Two great voices on all original tracks. Martin Belmont is the lead guitarist and his twang is all over it, and Alan Cook is the featured steel guitar player. Fiddle is provided by Bob Loveday, who I think is part of the Penquin Cafe Orchestra.

Love this album! Stand out tracks? Just about all of 'em! But the six minutes of "The Other Half" is the track I find myself returning to most!

If you enjoy country music with more of a classic sound, this is the album for you. Recommended highly!

This album has restored my faith in the British music scene after hearing what seems years of over hyped and mediocre offerings.A superb display of writing good tuneful songs and well thought through lyrics means that you don't have to even be a country music fan to appreciate how good this welcome release is.Some of the songs have a 50's/60's feel to them and the stand out tracks for me are the quite brilliant ' I Bought Some Roses ' and ' Going Back to Memphis '.I read about this album in a country music magazine which gave it the 5 star treatment and I have been caught out before in believing what I read only to be disappointed but on this occasion My Darling Clementine deserve every inch of praise and more for what is simply an outstanding album.

This has to be the best country album by a British artist since Elvis Costello's 'Almost Blue'. And that was cover versions. This is all original songs and beautifully written and sung they are too. All duets, and so good throughout it's impossible to pick out highlights. The band is amazing - Geraint Watkins, Martin Belmont and more great musicians. The best thing about this album is that it doesn't fall into any traps of parody or pastiche despite a clear homage to the great duets of the likes of George Jones & Tammy Wynette. For people who like Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, John Prine or just plain old country music at its best - I cannot recommend this album hghly enough. Outstanding.

I dont' generally like Country music by British singers. I find they so often try to sound like the real thing. They do poor versions of great songs or and they put on fake American accents or the self written songs just are not up to scratch. Why buy a poor imitation when you can buy the real thing? However, there are a few exceptions and this duo is definately one of them. It is country music the way it was maybe 30 or 40 years ago without sounding retro. There are no phoney American accents or poor versions of original songs. The songs are original and they really are good. The singing is relaxed unforced and natural. The instrumentation is country and just right. This is high quality country music for those that like good country music or enjoy the sounds of a bygone age or those who enjoyed the duets of Wynette/Jones or Twitty/Lynn or similar. Well worth a listen and it shows that Country music really can be done well outside the USA. Recommended.
