Great album...should have been a double disc, May 7 2004
For James McMurtry fans you will understand when I say this should have been a double disc. If you are not familiar with McMurtry, buy this album and then all of his albums and you will see what I mean. I have seen James dozens of times live and for my money nobody does it better. This album truly shows what a great vocalist, song writer, and guitarist James is. His sound is raw but refined at the same time as is evident in the powerful "Rachel's Song". His song writing is reminiscent of his great father's works, novelist Larry McMurtry. If there was any justice in the music industry these days, James would be a household name. For now I am glad he isn't because there is nothing like seeing him perform to overcrowded beer joints the way good music was intended to be heard. My only complaint is it isn't a double disc. I can't think of a bad song he has ever done. A definite must have for fans and beginners alike.
