As someone else stated in another review I should have checked out the singers. If your idea of pleasure is to hear beautiful classic songs being butchered by so called singers (Lulu, Geldof e.t.c.) then this is for you otherwise steer clear of this self - indulgent nonsense and go for the originals instead.
I expected better of Mr Holland & his crew. 1 star for the fact that they can obviously play their instruments, be it without any soul or emotion on this hideous album.
Rock and pop singers who dabble in country have a somewhat chequered history. Some of them just record country songs in their own style, as Ray Charles did with enormous success back in the sixties. Others make greater efforts to appeal to country fans, a prime example being Neil Young's album Old ways, recorded with Nashville musicians and guest vocalists Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Although I love Neil's album, it wasn't the commercial success that Neil had hoped it would be. So what of this effort by Jools and his guests?
Jools (or the marketing people) certainly went overboard with the cover. Red sandstone cliffs and cacti fit the stereotype that some people like to associate with country music. Graft Stonehenge into this otherwise American landscape, to make clear that this is a British album, and you have the backdrop to the booklet cover, completed by a picture of Jools and the relevant credits (artist and album title). But are the contents as country as the booklet cover suggests? Perhaps not, but they're a lot nearer to traditional country than some of the music Nashville has to offer.Read more ›
