    Patty's greatest album

    Patty Loveless is the only artist who when I hear that they have a new album I will immediately go an buy it without hearing another word. She is my favorite artist ever. Mountain Soul is so doggone good it goes beyond words. Listening to the album is almost a spiritual experience that goes right into your bones. "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive" brings me to tears. I saw Patty at the House of Blues in Anaheim and I am still shaking. Yeah I like Shania, but Patty is the real deal.

    REAL Country Music

    I thoroughly enjoy this album every time I hear it. The vocals and music are mixed together to give the listener a feeling like no other. All of the songs are great, but my favorites are "Daniel Prayed," "Rise Up Lazarus," and "Pretty Little Miss." This mixture of country, bluegrass, and Gospel is definitely a winner.

    Great Traditional Country Music

    In a just country music world, Mountain Soul would be the top album of the year. The acoustic arrangements are dead on perfect and Patty Loveless delivers each song with feeling, making them her own. Her version of Darryl Scott's ''You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive'' is a classic. Anyone who appreciates acoustic music, real country (as opposed to todays countryPOP), bluegrass or just hearing an artist at the top of her form, will fall in love with Mountain Soul.

    Totally Awesome!!!!!

    One of the greatest albums I ever heard. Patty deserves a Grammy for this album. This will truly be one of my favorites.

    Home to Pikeville, Kentucky

    Last summer, I was fortunate enough to hear Patty Loveless perform three of these traditional tunes in concert as she toured promoting her Strong Heart CD. Now I don't write fan mail, but after this concert I wrote and pleaded for a whole CD of soulful mountain music. I like to think that Mountain Soul is Patty's answer, the register of one singer's return to her Appalachian roots. This true coal-miner's daughter sings with great skill and with maturity and with evident enjoyment. The pace is upbeat, the harmonies tight, the soul, well, soulful. An added bonus is the family photo album in the liner notes. These pictures of her family reminded me how close most of us are to the Depression still. A noble record from a wonderful artist.
