NRBQ usually get celebrated for their freewheeling, eclectic, irreverent approach. But, lest anyone forget, NRBQ are also capable of moments of sheer, unabashed innocence, moments that are found all over this 1985 album, which found them backing (and singing along with) one of the most endearingly sentimental of country singers. This record will melt your heart.
A Pleasant Surprise!

"Don't let the unattractiveness of the cover turn you off; this is an unusual but enjoyable "fun" album. The only thing that the versatile Skeeter Davis probably hasn't sung is Reggae and Rap. With this album she has demonstrated that she still has what it was that made her so popular in the 60's; the ability to sing practically any style or song and give it "her" touch. The arrangements are awesome, and the instruments (which frankly I can't identify) give that down-home country feel with a touch of Jazz and R&B (or something like that). You will be sure to enjoy the funny number "Everyone Wants a Cowboy" and also "Aint Nice To Talk Like That" which is infectious with solid three part harmony; but my favourite is "Someday My Prince Will Come" - just listen to the band's playing at the end. I have listened to this over and over and I can't get tired of hearing it. It is sooooo SWEET, and NRBQ does things with th! e instruments that I can't explain. This album will definitely surprise you."
A riveting CD!!!

"It was the first time Listening to this grand lady named Skeeter Davis. I was amazed at her voice. The tunes sound wonderful. I'm very happy."

"This is really one of NRBQ's finest pieces of work. Once again they proved themselves to be the classiest combo in music by really stepping back and letting Skeeter Davis shine. Her duets with Joey, Al, and Terry are a joy and there is just so much warmth and good humor in this collection that it's a pleasure to listen to. A match made in heaven!"
