Traditional country with Janie and Emmylou
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 02/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Vern had a long career during which he gained a certain amount of recognition without becoming a really big star. Perhaps he is best remembered for his eighties music, notably Chiselled in stone, but he also made some excellent music for Warner/Elektra in the late seventies and that is the music which this compilation contains.In those days, Janie Fricke and Emmylou both provided backing or duet vocals (but not together) for Vern and they can each be clearly heard on this set. Listen to Emmylou and Vern on Yesterday's gone and Hanging on, or to Janie and Vern on Till the end, Mother country music and It started all over again.The set features several covers including Break my mind (a John D Loudermilk song that was originally a country hit for George Hamilton IV), Catch the wind (a sixties pop hit for Donovan, a British folk-rocker inspired by Bob Dylan), Never my love (a sixties pop hit for the Association - another track featuring Janie) and Shake rattle and roll (the fifties rock'n'roll classic).If you enjoy Kenny Rogers' music from the same period (Lucille, Daytime friends, Love lifted me) before he switched to a more pop-country style, this should appeal to you. If you have some of Vern's eighties music, you should also enjoy this.TracksBreak my mind
All I want and need forever
Yesterday's gone
Till the end
Mother country music
Hanging on
Catch the wind
Never my love
It started all over again
Shake rattle and roll"
