CD Reviews

One of Billy Joe's best
GLD2CUGO | Raleigh, NC | 10/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been a fan of Billy Joe for many years and I have every CD he has released. I have listened to this album many times since I purchased it and I have to say that this is definately one of his best; not to far behind his very best, Tramp on Your Street. Billy Joe is one of the best and most consistant songwriters today. If you are a fan don't hesitate to buy this. If you are new to Billy Joe this is as good a place to start as any."
Honky Tonk Hero shows his Spiritual Side
Frank E. Hurtte | Davenport, IA | 11/21/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's hard not to be a long time country music fan without hearing a Billy Joe Shaver song. In the 70's Waylon Jennings did a whole album of Shaver's music. And, since then, nearly everybody has covered at least one of his songs - Rockers, Country, Blues, Folk; they have all done one or two.
Shaver has always unleashed his emotions in his music. And a whole lot of his songs have covered the ups and downs of a rambling honky-tonk lifestyle. Yet throughout all of his music there were numerous references to his Christian roots and his long term spiritual values.
This album uncovers the veneer and pushes his values to front and center. There may be some who are turned off by the overtly fundamentalist Christian messages. The music speaks for itself. But, if you are a Christian (I am)and you too have walked down some tonky-tonk paths (I have), you are going to love every track on this work."
