Product Description

Amazon.ca

Alan Jackson's eighth album for Arista has nothing to prove, no broad statements to make, no shocking musical switch-ups. In laying back into acoustic shuffles like "Right on the Money" and pedal steel- sweetened ballads like "Gone Crazy," Jackson disarms with subtle delivery and a back-to-country-basics band. He penned half the album, and remarkably, his compositions are so strong one wishes he'd handled the entire record. The best non-original is a Kieran Kane's I'll Go On Loving You, the sexiest thing Jackson's ever recorded, with an elegantly dark string arrangement, and a deadly serious spoken delivery; the worst is "What a Day Yesterday Was," a slice of proud-to- live-in-the-past schmaltz. Even without A-level material, Jackson's gut-deep drawl, his continued commitment to traditional country sounds, and his unfailing avoidance of pretension number him among mainstream Nashville's most convincing voices. He's no maverick and this record holds few surprises; still, in Jackson's case, consistency will quite nearly suffice. --Roy Francis Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Alan's Best Releases! Aug. 7 2000
By Honor System - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is probably my favorite Alan Jackson CD. The songs are great and he does not over do the high strung songs. It's a great mix. I especially like the slow songs and he should do more of them. This CD seems to be highly underated and did not get much play time on radio stations. I did see his video a couple times (little man) on CMT. This CD is also enhanced which means it has these great little video clips if you put the cd into your computer. One of the clips is really neat. It tells about where he got the idea to write the song "Don't rock the jukebox." Alan was with his friends at a bar/club and he was leaning on the jukebox (which was missing a leg). So his friend said "don't rock the jukebox." Well, as for the songs on this CD they are all wonderful. My favorite one has to be "ill go on loving you." All the songs are good mainly because Alan just doesnt just rush to put a bunch of songs together. He puts thought and emotion in all of his songs. That's what is so great about Alan, he knows how to express his true feelings and by doing this he creates truely touching songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's a beautiful country music CD Oct. 10 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am an early fan of country music, but when I have listened this cd I liked it very much. Songs like "a little man", "gone crazy" and mainly "another good reason" and "hurtin' comes easy" are greats. You must hear too the suprising song "I`ll go on loving you". Congratulations, Mr. Jackson.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Don Williams influence shines through Aug. 25 2003
By Peter Durward Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
On Alan's album of covers, Under the influence, Alan made clear that one of his influences was Don Williams. This mellow album is devoid of all the good-time rocking songs like Chattahoochee and Don't rock the jukebox, while it also lacks any real tear-jerkers like Here in the real world. That said, the album does have some sadness, like Gone crazy, but even here it seems that Alan has accepted the situation and is past the stage of being upset.
Another great song is Little man, a song about what a town used to be like in the old days - another song with a tinge of sadness but philosophical acceptance. There are happier songs here too, like Right on the money and I'll go on loving you. Alan reflects on the past and also looks to the future in What a day yesterday was, hoping that life will continue to be just as good. The tempo picks up a little on Hurting comes easy and a bit more on Another good reason, but even this track, while fast by the standards of this album, is slow compared to many of Alan's classic up-tempo songs. The closing Amarillo, like all the songs here, is an original song and should not be confused with Emmylou's song of the same title.
On this album, Alan gives the impression of being comparatively at ease with the world - nothing to get too excited about, but nothing to get too sad about either. It is exactly the kind of album that Don recorded in the seventies and eighties, albeit with a contemporary production. I like this album a lot. It does not show the full range of Alan's capability but there are times when this is just the kind of album I want to listen to.

This Is A Great CD. It Features The Balleds "I'll Go On Loving You", And "Gone Crazy". "Right On The Money" A Number 1 Hit, Is My Favorite. In The Video For "Little Man", He Pays Tribute On "The Good Ol' Days" As He Did In "Don't Rock The Jukebox", And "Midnight In Montgomery". This Is A Must Have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Feb. 17 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD by Alan Jackson is absolutely amazing! The songs are awesome, real, true country music, like it's meant to be sung. My personal favorites are Gone Crazy, Little Man, Hurtin' Comes Easy, and Another Good Reason. All the rest of the songs are excellent, too with the exception of the very stupid, boring, and pointless Right On The Money which I don't like. But one bad song couldn't ruin this album! Not when there are nine other terrific songs to make up for it! This CD is a true keeper and a must have for all country music fans. Buy "High Mileage" today. You won't be disappointed!
