    If you like country duets, this is a great one. They didn't call Vern Gosdin "The Voice" for nothing. This duet with Janie Fricke is absolutely beautiful!

    I've loved this tribute album Caught in the Webb: Tribute to Webb Pierce ever since it was released, highlighting the brilliance of country legend Webb Pierce. One of the best tribute albums that I've heard.

    Just looking at the names attached to the project and you might see why since it includes Willie Nelson, Mandy Barnett, George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam, Charley Pride, Robbie Fulks, Allison Moorer, Pam Tillis, Crystal Gayle, Rosie Flores and other fine talents.

    Here's Mandy's contribution of the classic song "Slowly" to the above album:

    Most likely....everyone had a different style so it’s apples and oranges I guess.

    A big Carter family fan here. I had this band where we used to do Lulu Walls, Sweet fern, My Dixie darling, Are you lonesome to-night, Wildwood flower, and by myself I've also played You are my flower, Storms are on the ocean, Gold watch and chain, Keep on the sunny side, Engine 143, at least. So many have covered their songs but the originals have such a special and different quality that no-one has been able to come close to them, not even Maybelle herself. Modern bands that cover Carter songs tend to cut the corners on the weird chord changes and missed beats, but to me those details are essential parts of the songs. Like in "Gold watch and chain", "I will pawn you my gold watch and chain love", now any other guitarist in the world would make the chord change from Eb to Bb on the "chain" beat, but Maybelle does it the "love" beat, all through the song, verse and chorus. Or the chorus in "My Dixie darling", at first it just sounds random and uncontrolled, but they do it exactly the same way every time. Progressive!

    Thank you, I've never heard of them, but those two cuts are amazing. Do they write their own material?

    There were some duets in the 90s that seemed to be in the same vein - the name Foster and Lloyd comes to mind.

    Today, I put one of the 2 cds on that old Hank Williams set in the car - I had forgotten how many great songs he created in such a short time.

    Yes, they write their own material. They are brothers despite having different last names, Paul Burkum and Jack Torrey (the latter adopted a stage name at age 19 as a solo artist). The two cuts are probably my favorites from the album You're Dreaming, but I really like the whole album from start to finish. :)

  17. A great, great SACD. I've sung its praises before on the forum, but it is one of my favorite SACDs. The recordings from the 1960s sound like they were just made yesterday.

    lauderdale had a good shot working with pete anderson and signed to epic(?) way back then, but i think in a way or at the time yoakum stole the thunder and la was no mans land for "country". still both lauderdale and certainly yoakum redeemed themselves admirably.

    So many road signs were stolen that the Johnson County, Tennessee, county commissioners renamed it Copperhead Hollow Road. I live two counties distant and have a good friend who lives in Johnson County, and honest, neither of us has a Copperhead Road sign. Wouldn't mind having one. :winkgrin:

    Among my favorite Steve Earle songs.
