I recently heard David Rodriguez (author of the Snow Leopard and the Tanqueray Cowboy) original version of the song. It was a very matter-of-fact, almost throw-away song about a rich girl suffering from all that "Daddy's money" could not buy. Compare this to Lyle's version, where he drops the "daddy" and sings one of the most beautiful ballads I've ever heard. Much more of a love song than anything else. I find his interpretation masterful, powerful and highly pleasurable. This is the best song on the 2 cd set.

I've been an avid fan for about 3 years; one of those who hate country but love Lyle. This is the first of his cds which sounds like a traditional country album - with the exception of the 2 glorious gospel songs. I agree that the music is redundant, but it is also that twangy-kind of country music that Lyle never did. I've listened to it twice, straight through, and probably won't listen to it again. What a disappointment.

Conveyed new information, so was worth the read for an avid fan, but it dragged on and on.

What a thrill to hear Gary Brooker's relatively unchanged voice from Procol Harum's hayday. Their music was always glorious, but these versions of "A Salty Dog" and "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" made the heavens open wide. Unthinkable that these songs could ever have been improved upon, but in this cd, taped inside Brooker's church, they were. Any Procol Harum fan must have this cd. It was truly glorious. Thus speaketh the atheist.

I've been a Cornwell fan since she began writing. The books featuring Dr. Kay Scarpetta are beautifully written, suspenseful and keep me glued to my seat. The Isle of Dogs, on the other hand, was like a very cheap imitation of Carl Hiiasen novels. It just does not work; I was embarrassed for the author. How can such a wonderful writer write such [stuff]? I hope she got this out of her system and goes back to what she does so beautifully.
