Caught in the Webb: A Tribute to the Legendary Webb Pierce

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
This tribute to underappreciated country singing giant Webb Pierce –- an unjustly marginalized Nashville figure despite a dominant string of '50s hits –- is pretty much flawless, both in its choice of material and in the artists who bring it all home so spectacularly. Produced by ardent Pierce devotee Gail Davies whose cover of Pierce's "No Love Have I" hit the charts in 1978, it highlights the flamboyant, Nudie suit-wearing singer's perfect ear for honky-tonk winners. Deep-voiced Dale Watson, backed by the Jordanaires who also support on terrific cuts by Rosie Flores, Pam Tillis, and Guy Clark, gets things off to a rousing start with a hard-bopping rendition of "In the ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
This tribute to underappreciated country singing giant Webb Pierce –- an unjustly marginalized Nashville figure despite a dominant string of '50s hits –- is pretty much flawless, both in its choice of material and in the artists who bring it all home so spectacularly. Produced by ardent Pierce devotee Gail Davies whose cover of Pierce's "No Love Have I" hit the charts in 1978, it highlights the flamboyant, Nudie suit-wearing singer's perfect ear for honky-tonk winners. Deep-voiced Dale Watson, backed by the Jordanaires who also support on terrific cuts by Rosie Flores, Pam Tillis, and Guy Clark, gets things off to a rousing start with a hard-bopping rendition of "In the Jailhouse Now." Mandy Barnett, bolstered by a weeping pedal steel line, offers an object lesson in country torch singing on the tear-jerking "Slowly." George Jones makes it clear why he's the most revered singer in country music as he lays out all the sad facts of a love gone wrong on "Yes I Know Why." Dwight Yoakam offers up his own account of faithless love in a western swing ballad, "If You Were Me." In an ethereal, atmospheric performance, Emmylou Harris charges "Wondering" with doubt and desire all at once, while Allison Moorer turns in a showstopping, rage-and-glee-filled interpretation of the adultery classic "Back Street Affair." The Del McCoury Band sound positively beside themselves in a jubilant bluegrass celebration of the good life post-breakup on "Walking the Dog," and Willie Nelson sounds appropriately desolate on "That's Me Without You" as the pedal steel cries behind him. BR5-49, Charley Pride, Robbie Fulks and Joy Lynn White, Lionel Cartwright, Trent Summar, and Pam Tillis are among the other stalwarts who make Caught in the Webb a keeper. Tributes don't get any more powerful –- or any more deserved -- than this.
All Music Guide - Rick Cohoon
From the '40s until his death in 1991, country legend Webb Pierce worked his magic as a singer and songwriter, recording and penning some of the most memorable songs in country music history. Ten years after his death, producer Gail Davies and Audium Records have assembled an impressive cast of country artists to pay tribute to the icon in Caught in the Webb: A Tribute to the Legendary Webb Pierce. A glance at the talent represented on this album speaks volumes about the quality of this tribute. Though versions of Pierce mega-hits "Why Baby Why" and "In the Jailhouse Now" are included, it doesn't get any better than Emmylou Harris' rendition of "Wondering." Harris' vocals are pure enchantment. Grand Ole Opry star Billy Walker is another standout with a smooth delivery of "I Don't Care" backed by the Carol Lee Singers and a piano accompaniment reminiscent of the Nashville sound. The only seams in the fabric of the album seem to be the Del McCoury Band's performance of "Walkin' the Dog," which comes across as a bit too grating, and Charley Pride's "I'm Tired." Pride's vocals sound a bit hoarse for some reason here, unlike on his endearing tribute album to Jim Reeves. Die-hard traditional country music lovers and those who hold the Grand Ole Opry dear will definitely get "caught in the Webb" of this tribute to the legendary Webb Pierce. It is refreshing to see that in the age of pop sparkle the artists who shaped the country genre are not completely forgotten. Equally refreshing is to see that established artists such as George Jones, Willie Nelson, and Crystal Gayle are joining forces with a younger generation of artists like Allison Moorer, Trent Summar, and B45-49, who still revere the roots of country.
