After Awhile

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
While Jimmie Dale Gilmore's first two solo albums presented him as an enlightened honky tonk cowboy, 1991's After Awhile, his first set for Elektra, was less stylistically bound to country music, and approached Gilmore as a singer/songwriter, albeit one with a decided West Texas sensibility.

After Awhile is a subtle, unforced masterpiece that captures Gilmore at the subtle peak of his abilities.
