"The reason I'm buying this disc for the fourth time is simple: in a collection of thousands of discs, this particular gem is paramount to my collection. Scratches from my truck driving college roommate hampered my first Spinning Around the Sun disc, and the second disc fell to a similar fate at the hands of a road trip to Ciudad Acuna. The third time, I recorded the disc and kept the original at home. That attempt was trivial; the travel disc was stolen by my best friend and the original given to my next door neighbor who fell in love with it after repeatedly hearing it out of my open windows. Enough said. This disc is not surreal flatlands music; this disc is the flatlands, in every sense. Wide open spaces make for unforgettable music. You will know what I mean..."
Just plain incredible!!

"What are you doing reading this review? Download "One Endless Night" and then hit that 1-click button. You NEED this CD!If I had to choose a word to describe this music, that word would be `easy.' JDG possesses a unique voice. The comparisons to Orbison are obvious, with perhaps a touch of Willie Nelson nasal twang - but with an easy control This is a man who knows his voice and seemingly doesn't have to TRY to make it work. It's just plain easy on the ears.The guitar is equally astounding. You know how some people make playing the guitar look easy? Like they just barely touch the strings and pure genius springs forth? Watch Clapton or Stevie Ray Vaughn sometime and you'll see what I mean. That is what the guitars are like here. And the production is flawless.When you hear JDG sing "I was the one who taught her to kiss...." You'll believe that he was! The song "So I'll Run" is a standout. "Nothing Of The Kind" is pure West Texas rhythm. Gilmore's own songs stand up as equals to the covers he has selected for this CD. "Another Colorado" and "Thinking About You", two JDG penned tunes are just exceptional.I will agree with a previous reviewer that maybe the vocals on the cover of Hank Williams Sr. tune "I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry" are a bit off, but the Guitar work is deadly cool. Probably my least favorite is "Mobile Line", a traditional tune arranged by Gilmore, which seems a bit contrived.And there are the lyrics... With such an amazing voice and top-notch musicianship it is easy to forget the stories being told. The four JDG originals on this CD are absolutely beautiful."
A wonderful cd, despite a clunker or two

"Jimmie Dale Gilmore's voice defies accurate description. Once heard, the part hillbilly, part Texan, part Roy Orbison sound cannot be forgotten. When paired with the right song, Gilmore's distinctive voice is pure heaven. And, for the most part, his choices on Spinning Around the Sun will keep the country angels happy. "Another Colorado" is only one example of the many beautiful lyrical gems that dominate the cd. However, when Jimmie Dale stumbles with his song selections, the results can be painful. My cat outperforms Jimmie Dale with her version of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". Still, I encourage you to overlook the rare clunkers...this is a great cd with some truly magical music."
