This is a fantastic CD with lots of the oldies...Ole Possum at his best..
George and guests remember his old hits

"This was the fourth album that George recorded with a star-studded line-up of guests - the others were My very special guests, Ladies choice and Friends in high places. On this occasion, George's guests were a mix of contemporary nineties country stars and oldies, and all the songs were old country hits for George - so fans of George's earlier music will not find any new songs here.Marty Stuart sets the standard with the opening track, a brilliant duet version of One woman man. Alan Jackson does equally well on A good year for the roses, which provided Elvis Costello with a British top ten hit after he covered it in 1981. Most of the singers here have impeccable country credentials, but Keith Richards and Mark Knopfler also put in appearances. Mark Chesnutt rounds of a superb album In between, Tammy re-creates one of her earlier hits with George via a re-recording of Golden ring, while Ricky Skaggs (Why baby why), Vince Gill (Love bug) and Travis Tritt (Race is on) are all ideally suited to the songs on which they duet. Trisha Yearwood sings Bartender blues superbly with help from George, but my favorite track here features Trisha (again) with Emmylou and Dolly supporting George on Where grass won't grow.This is an excellent collection of George's old hits, re-recorded as duets. It may not be an essential album, but is a worthy addition to any collection of country music."
ALL STAR CAST SHINE WITH THE POSSUM!!

"I Love this classic album, ever since it's release in 1994 it's been of of my favorite cd's. I really dig the duet of George Jones & Keith Richards. First you hear the worn out voice of the Rolling Stones guitarist, then you hear why George Jones is the best country singer of all time, what a soulful beautiful voice!! Listening to Jones'duet with Vince Gill, Richards, Dire Straits, Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson, Tammy Wynette and others, you see why George Jones is still looked up as the VOICE of country music, he seems to get better with age, just like vintage wine. No new songs where recorded for this album, just classics from the Possum catalog. Only thing missing is a duet of Jones and Garth Brooks, I would have loved to hear these 2 greats singing "He Stopped Loving her Today", maybe it will be on the second volume of "The Bradley Barn Sessions". I recommend this cd highly, to the young fans and the old fans of George Jones, a true icon of country music!"
