The Southern Gentleman !
Mcgivern Owen L | NY, NY USA | 05/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first came to appreciate Sonny James via the late, lamented "60s country" channel of net What a treasure trove of classic country that was! "Young Love" captures most of the Southern Gentleman's #1 hits of the 60s and early 70s. The selections are numbered in the same sequence that Capitol records released them publicly. Sonny made a specialty of taking soft rock/pop hits and "countryfying" them. High points are "Born to Be With You" (The Chordettes), "Take Good Care of Her" (Adam Wade) and "Empty Arms" (Theresa Brewer) plus "Behind the Tear" and "Heaven Says Hello". This is mellow country at its best. While Sonny often did his own version of other's efforts, he is no copycat. These country versions are almost new songs in themselves-with his own unique spin. Was that a cry in his voice? Any man able to countryfy The Chordettes is a talented artist. According to Billboard, Sonny had 64 charted country hits from 1953-1983. "Young Love" will give the appreciative listener a solid sampling of the best of those 30 years. Unlike so many albums which sneak in duds, all 21 tracks were in the Billboard top 10 and 15 (!) were #1. If you like your country on the soft side, this CD is (pardon the pun), in a "World of Its Own"."
A Great Collection

"Here is a 21 song collection by Razor & Tie of one of the finest voices of American Music. All of Sonny's biggest hits are included: "Bright Lights, Big City", "Young Love", and "Take Good Care of Her". More importantly are the inclusion of other numbers from his vast catalog: specifically, I'm referring to: "Behind the Tear", "Running Bear", and "It's the Little Things". The sound and mixing presented on this album are second to none. You will most definately enjoy this album, and for the money, you'd be nuts if you dont grab it while it's still available."

"What can you say that hasn't already been said about the extreme talent of Sonny James. I have followed his music from the 1950's and haven't heard a bad record yet, He is a wonderful person as well as a great singer and there will never be another Sonny James. I rate him up there with Elvis, Conway Twitty, Gene Watson, Eddy Arnold, and all the country greats that I admire. He's the best!"
