Dreamin' My Dreams [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Working as usual with her producer and husband, Emory Gordy Jr., Patty Loveless returns to the hard-country sound that launched her vaunted career. She gives this collection of vibrant songs a breadth and depth of understanding that alternately brings chills or sends spirits soaring. Ol' Waylon would be proud of the honky-tonk waltz "Dreamin' My Dreams" has become in Loveless's hands, not to mention Albert Lee's languid guitar solos and Russ Pahl's swooning pedal steel commentary. One of Steve Earle's early supporters, Loveless returns to the outlaw poet's canon for "My Old Friend the Blues," giving it an appropriately sober reading, its quiet arrangement spiced with Rob...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Working as usual with her producer and husband, Emory Gordy Jr., Patty Loveless returns to the hard-country sound that launched her vaunted career. She gives this collection of vibrant songs a breadth and depth of understanding that alternately brings chills or sends spirits soaring. Ol' Waylon would be proud of the honky-tonk waltz "Dreamin' My Dreams" has become in Loveless's hands, not to mention Albert Lee's languid guitar solos and Russ Pahl's swooning pedal steel commentary. One of Steve Earle's early supporters, Loveless returns to the outlaw poet's canon for "My Old Friend the Blues," giving it an appropriately sober reading, its quiet arrangement spiced with Rob Ickes's pungent dobro lines and Stuart Duncan's evocative, mournful fiddle lines. On the original "Big Chance," an old-fashioned hoedown, Loveless sings exuberantly of new love, backed by twin fiddles, dobro, and banjo burning it up on solos. Fellow Kentuckian Dwight Yoakam lends some heartfelt harmonies to a swinging, bluegrass treatment of the Delaney & Bonnie classic "Never Ending Song of Love," with Duncan's sprightly fiddle solos effectively playing the part of a third vocalist. A couple of impeccable tunes from Jim Lauderdale, a rocking "Keep Your Distance" from Richard Thompson, a taste of roadhouse blues on "Same Kind of Crazy," and voila! A masterpiece presents itself.
All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Patty Loveless breaks the Nash Vegas mold. She's living proof that talent -- God-given and well-tended -- is enough to keep listeners' attention over the years. Loveless worked hard to get where she is by consistently offering solid records, full of fine material and passionate, true performances. Dreamin' My Dreams is no exception; in fact, it may be a crowning achievement in a career full of them. Produced by husband Emory Gordy and Justin Niebank, the set features 12 tracks by writers as diverse as Richard Thompson the stunning, rocking opener "Keep Your Distance", Steve Earle a fine reading of "My Old Friend the Blues", Allen Reynolds the wonderful title track, Delaney Bramlett "Never Ending Song of Love" with Dwight Yoakam as a duet partner, and Gordy who wrote "Big Chance" with Loveless and "When I Reach the Place I'm Going" with Joe Henry, just to mention a few. Players include guitar slinger Albert Lee and fiddle ace Stuart Duncan. This is an adventurous outing for the likes of Music City. But Loveless has a track record that demands she gets to take chances. Her voice which gets better with age never strays from the heart and soul of country music's grand tradition. The ballads here such as "Nobody Here by That Name" or "When Being Who You Are Is Not Enough," by Jim Lauderdale and Leslie Satcher are otherworldly; the rockers, such as Delbert McClinton's "Same Kind of Crazy" and Thompson's tune, strut, swagger, and dig deep into the basics of love and loss. Ultimately, the sheer range of sounds and emotions, and the integrity of Loveless' voice make Dreamin' My Dreams a candidate for country album of the year. [This edition of the album contains bonus tracks.]
