Bluegrass sad love song singing
Lynn H. Carrier | Hooperville, TN USA | 07/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"James King told me that his version of Hazel Dickens 'Just a Few Old Memories' was Dolly Parton's favorite. James King reaches deep into America's Bluegrass tradition to find tearful love songs that he sings with his tenor Bluegrass sound. A former U.S. Marine, he uses his strength of character to sing sad love songs about broken hearts with the inflection that only a spurned lover could feel.The musicians backing King play with feeling and percision and provide subtle harmonizing to complement King's strong tenor. - 2000"
James King shines
Michael R. Nothstine | Wilmore, Ky | 01/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"James King is an impressive traditional bluegrass vocalist. Of the three albums of his I own this is definitely my favorite. The album title makes a lot of sense, because it will make you feel lonesome. The song selection is great, and my favorite is Hazel Dickens "Just A Few Old Memories." He has a truly powerful and stunning voice that will capture the fan of any traditional country or bluegrass lover. I would describe this entire album as "The Stanley Brothers meet George Jones." And if you think both or either of those are great musicians you will absolutely love "Lonesome and then Some." If you don't own any of King's stuff this a good album to start with."
Nice mix of bluegrass picking and Country soul

"James King is currently one pof my favorite bluegrass singers, a traditionalist with a nice ear for new tunes. This was the album that really turned my head in his direction... It's a great record, with a couple of brief lulls, but it mainly packs a real wallop. I particularly like King's ability to dip into George Jones-ish heartsongs, notably on his version of Hank Cochran's "It'll Be Me," as fine a tribute to Ole Possum's country crooning as anyone might ask for... The picking on here, courtesy of Dudley Connell, Tom Adams and others, is also mighty fine. A really nice record... recommended!"
