Ronee Blakely rules!
Ian Burley | 10/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At last, here on CD, the soundtrack of one of my favourite films of all time. I still remember the shock I had on seeing "Nashville" for the first time on TV a few years after its initial release - the great performances, magnificent storytelling and innovative style knocked me out. I was able to see the movie again just a few years ago on the big screen and was delighted to see that it hasn't aged. But I couldn't get my hands on the soundtrack. But now here it is, as wonderful as all the rest. The songs stand the test of time as well as the film and there are plenty of jewels here - the magnificent "It Don't Worry Me" in both versions, Keith Carradine's Oscar winner "I'm Easy", Karen Black's cute contributions and Henry Gibson's "200 Years" (interesting to see that another reviewer views this as a patriotic song. Personally, I've always found it brilliantly and satirically funny). But the real stand-out is Ronee Blakely. Her songs and voice are absolutely magnificent. It's high time some enterprising company re-released her solo album(s) because, apart from her backing vocals on Dylan's "Hurricane", the "Nashville" soundtrack seems to be the only recording available on CD of this magnificent lady's work."
C&W with Irony

"Country&Western music plus subtley and irony would seem to be an oxymoron. But these aren't ordinary country tunes, just as "Nashville" is no ordinary movie. Though critical and satiric, the songs, like the movie, manage to be infectious and touching as well. I'd recommend the album not only for fans of the movie but as preparation for younger viewers who may not even have been around at the time of the movie's release. Despite its academy award, I find Carradine's "I'm Easy" to be one of the weaker songs in the collection. The stand-out is Ronee Blakeley's performance of "Dues," in which the pathos and emotional vulnerability equal some of the best moments in the music of Judy Garland and Billy Holiday."

"First of all, I am a film buff before I'm a music lover, but "Nashvile" is brimming with some of the most dulcet and introspective music of the 1970s. Ronee Blakley truly earned her Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination as the emotionally frazzled Barbara Jean, and her songs ("Tapedeck in his tractor", "Dues" and especially "My Idaho Home") are equally impressive as her acting. Keith Carradine's Oscar-winner "I'm Easy" was a perfect tune for anyone who has ever been sensitive about falling in love, and we fall right along with him. Some songs don't reach that level, however ("200 years and "Memphis"). Missing from the soundtrack, amazingly, are the soul-stirring gospel tune "Yes I Do" and the somber ballad "Since You've Gone". Easily, the highlight is "It don't worry me," which Carradine wrote and the magnificent Barbara Harris sang in the conclusion. It is a true collection of eclectic music that reflected a crucial time in our nation's structure."
