This review is from: Timeless (Audio CD)
Sure, most tribute albums are irregular and so is this one but it is a great listen! I think it rates with; The Pilgrim- A Celebration of Kris Kristofferson, Avalon Blues- A Tribute to the Music of Mississippi John Hurt and Return of the Grievous Angel- A Tribute to Gram Parsons.
I think it would be an insult to have people like Toby Keith on this CD and as for Hank Williams Jr. he just can't sing! Hank III is the real thing, I just wish he would produce more albums like his; Lovesick, Broke & Driftin'. I believe the Stones' music died long ago but Keith Richards did an honorable job and although I always found Keb' Mo' a bit plain, he sure sounds inspired here. I think the standout tracks are; Long Gone Lonesome Blues, Lost on the River and Cold, Cold Heart. The only problem I have with this CD is that it leaves me wanting more, more, more, it's just too short? Anyone who is a fan of the troubadour Hiram Hank Williams, needs this CD. Hank and Georgiana, Alabama would be proud!!!
