CD Reviews

Finally Out on CD!!
Deke Tate | San Antonio | 11/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone who likes both Bluegrass and Tom T. Hall will love this album, because it presents some of the best of both worlds. I've had the album on vinyl for 25 years, and am ecstatic that it's finally been released on CD. Non-bluegrass fans: don't be put off by by the bluegrass aspects of the album. I originally bought it strictly as a Tom T. Hall fan, and anyone so inclined will enjoy it for that as well. However, the album also served as my introduction to the world of bluegrass music and, after all these years, it's still one of my favorites.
On this album Tom T. Hall proves once again that he is indeed a "Magnificent Music Machine.""
I too wondered if we'd ever see this on CD

"I too had this on vinyl (1976) and wondered if we'd ever see it on CD. The song "Bluegrass Breakup" has haunted me; I still knew the lyrics after all these years. In fact, I found the CD searching for that song for my iPod. I was thrilled to see it on CD and am thrilled to hear it again.

There is only 1 negative: a playing time of around 1/2 hour. Other than that there no bad songs, though some stand out above the others. "Fox On The Run" is the definitive performance of this song for me; "Catfish Blues" is fun; "Magnificent Music Machine" has great harmony singing; and "Molly and Tenbrooks" is played at break-neck pace by Hall's stellar bluegrass accompanists. "Molly" even features a cameo by Bill Monroe himself - who had never played mandolin before on this song (his own) according to the liner notes.

I don't even know why I bought this way back when - I thought of Tom T. Hall as a pleasant singer of mostly silly songs like "I Like Beer" and "I Love" - but it has stayed with me through the years. His voice blends great with the twangier bluegrass harmony singers (featuring Jimmy Martin), but does have a slightly more pop feel. The players, including J.D. Crowe, are great. It is great, great, great to have this on CD. If you are a country or bluegrass fan, I can't imagine your not liking this disk - buy it!"
My favorite entertainer

"I like this and everything else Mr. Tom T. Hall has done. Not just like, but thoroughly enjoy."
