By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 18 Feb. 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Suzy Bogguss since I bought her debut album soon after its release more than 20 years ago, for which the title track was Somewhere between, a Merle Haggard song. I've been a Hag fan for even longer. This is not the first tribute album to his music I've bought; that was Mama's Hungry Eyes: A Tribute to Merle Haggard, but this is a very different album.

Despite having plenty of Merle's music myself, I think that Suzy knows a lot more about the man and his music than I, or indeed most country music fans, will ever know. It shows here, not only in her recording but in her song selection, which includes some famous songs but also some relatively obscure songs, although I've heard them all before.

Perhaps the least well known songs are The running kind (from the 1978 album A working man can't get nowhere today, and a #12 country hit) and You don't have vey far to go (from his classic album, Branded man, which also included Somewhere between, mentioned earlier). It is not difficult to find the original Merle Haggard recordings of those songs, but the others are even easier to find.

Suzt co-produced the album with her husband, utilizing just six musicians, who don't all play on every track. It's hard to pick favorites among Suzy's versions. I've heard many versions of the opening track but never tire of hearing yet another. I could nominate The running kind, because I don't hear that song as often as the others, but I think I'll give the edge to the title track.

This is a fine album and a magnificent tribute by one great country singer to another.

This 12 track CD of Merle Haggard, written or co-written songs is not, according to Suzy herself, a tribute album. Instead she refers to it as a collection of songs that she has always wanted to record. She has always been a fan of Merle Haggard since her first album release in 1989, entitled "Somewhere Between".

The arrangements differ from the original versions slightly in some cases, more so in others. Some of these songs were distinctly for a man to sing, yet with her gentle re-interpretations, all seems normal for the feminine touch. A quotation recently attributed to Suzy, read `What I really wanted to illuminate is not only is this guy awesome to see live and awesome to listen to on his records, but his songs are very relatable for somebody else to communicate to other people.` She proves that without any doubt, whatsoever.

I think if you are a fan of songs by Merle Haggard and the voice of Suzy Bogguss, you are on to a winner.

Found Suzy`s work via Chet Atkins and have been a fan since then. This CD is probably the best that I have purchased for a long long time in any genre. The choice of songs, the musicianship, harmonies and production are first class but above all else that voice...just perfection.

Loved Suzy's music from day one over 20 years ago and she never fails to deliver.All tracks on this album are penned by Merle Haggard and Suzy makes a lovely job of each track, a must for Suzy fans and an education for those who have not heard the works of Haggard.

ON ANOTHER LEVEL

Suzy Bogguss takes a leap and transforms merle Haggard's songs into her own. What takes her effort to another level, is that she achieves this by also remaining true the soul of the originals. With her interpretation the songs gain a new freshness
This is a major feat from an impressive talent

An album which anticipated a trend to pay tribute to the legendary Merle Haggard. The production was refreshing and less predictable than I had anticipated and all the better for that. A little heavy on the drums but Susie's vocals flew away on Silver Wings

Sadly I cannot get to see Suzie live in Bristol this year but this CD is wonderful with new arrangements of old favourites - and I get to play it over and over.

Suzy has never got the recognition she deserves. This is a great 'old fashioned' country album but I'm not sure it will add to her following. I'm very happy with it though.
