CD Reviews

Great Reissue
Michael Carley | San Joaquin Valley, CA | 09/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's good to see this CD finally reissued. I hope they will do the same with others from Hag's catalog.The two hit songs from this CD are "Someday when things are good" and the title track, "That's the way love goes". The latter won Hag his only Grammy, ironically, for a song he didn't write--it's an old Lefty Frizzell tune. The other tracks are good as well. "Carryin' Fire" is the closest thing to an erotic song you'll hear from Hag. "Last boat of the day" is a sweet song about a long distance love affair. The mood of this CD is not as downbeat or pessimistic as the Amazon review would lead you to believe. Rather, I would describe it as bittersweet. Hag was writing and singing about the end of his marriage, it's true, but it's from the perspective of someone who has been through it all before, and seems to know he will go through it again. The title track sets the mood with that theme, and the rest of the album supports it."

"First Heard This Album In 1984, Loved It Then And Still Do,
Best Down To Earth Album Merle Haggard Has Recorded In My Opinion"
