    The Adam Steffey album is great, and as I’ve said before, Ronnie Bowman’s singing on “Please Don’t Tell Me How The Story Ends” is absolutely sensational.

    The Ralph Stanley album is one that was previously released on the Copper Creek label as “Sixteen Years,” but it’s always good to have more of Charlie Sizemore’s singing with Ralph available.

    The free Lambert track might be one that didn’t make the album; it doesn’t appear on the Revolution track list posted at Amazon.

    I guess I jumped the gun on that one, thanks for the correction.

    Does this mean new music from Oh Susanna?!

    Amazon says that the Lambert track is no longer available… Sad day.

    Cool! I mean, don’t get me wrong, the whole album’s really, really good, but this track is something special.

    Haven’t gotten a chance to pick up the new Guy Clark record, so I cant speak to its quality, save “The Guitar”. Call me a nitpicker, but I have trouble taking a review seriously that doesn’t get the title of ‘the best song ‘ on the album right. I mean, people make mistakes, but “If I Needed You” shouldn’t be a hard title to recall if you’ve listened to the song half way through. Sorry, that ends my rant.

    I’m sad about the Diamond Rio album. As my favorite country band of the nineties, due in largest part to their unique harmonies, I’m disappointed that their harmonies are lost to a highly processed sound now, instead of the more organic sound that they used to have.

    Why are people always busting on B&D’s “Borderline”, I love that album!

    Skeve Marse is a dope. I found his repeated use of “and” and “the” distracting.

    I enjoyed the Blake Shelton interview!
