All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This 14-track collection is a retrospective from Buddy and Julie Miller's recordings -- solo and together -- on High Tone. There are six cuts from their self-titled duet album -- including a scorching unreleased take of "You Make My Heart Beat Too Fast" -- two from Buddy's Cruel Moon, and one each from Midnight and Lonesome, Poison Love, and Your Love and Other Lies. "Take Me Back" and "Out in the Rain" represent Julie's two albums on the label, Blue Pony and Broken Things. The pair sing together on all cuts. What this retrospective accomplishes aesthetically is simple: it offers a no less than astonishing portrait of most important duet in country-rock since Gram Parsons ...

"Take Me Back" and "Out in the Rain" represent Julie's two albums on the label, Blue Pony and Broken Things. The pair sing together on all cuts. What this retrospective accomplishes aesthetically is simple: it offers a no less than astonishing portrait of most important duet in country-rock since Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris -- no exaggeration. Buddy's wily raw instrument and Julie's grainy alto are rooted in country, blues, R&B, and rock & roll. They entwine seamlessly in whatever material they choose and turn the song out to the listener, breaking open its meaning in nuances and impressions as well as with wide open emotions that often lie on the dark side of the mirror. The music here, played expertly by cohorts like Gurf Morlix, Donald Lindley, Emmylou Harris, Sam Bush, Garry Tallent, Tammy Rogers, Larry Campbell, Brady Blade, and Don Heffington just to mention a few, become a rootsy, swirling seamless unit that not only allows rough edges to show but cultivates them and crafts an immediate knife's edge for the couple to dance out upon while ripping off the layers of skin and bone in their singing to get to the poetry that flows from the heart's blood of passion, pain, doubt, redemption, and willingness. This is a wonderfully sequenced, tough, and elegant album that, despite its lack of new material, comes off as a new offering just the same.

    A Dynamic Duo

    Buddy and Julie Miller are a husband and wife duo that deserve to be stars but,because their music doesn't fall into a niche, will probably toil in semi-obscurity. They remind me a bit of Richard & Linda Thompson. Julie's voice is not as powerful as Linda's but is more of a little-girl waif's. Both she and Buddy are gifted songwriters and he plays a mean guitar the equal of Richard's. Perhaps the most striking song is Quecreek, the account of a recent Pennsylvania mining accident that sounds like it could have been written by A. P. Carter. You might also want to check out Buddy's recent Hightone anthology.

    Retrospective of Americana duo together and apart

    This collection provides a retrospective of a husband-and-wife who succeed both as a duet act, and as solo artists. The fourteen tracks collect works from four of Buddy's solo albums, two of Julie's, and a half-dozen of their duet works. It's an impressive picture, with Julie's songwriting matched to Buddy's instrumental and producing talents, and the pair's voices intertwining Buddy's gruffer lower-register with Julie's girl-tinged alto. The mix of solo and duet works – all of which featuring both of their voices – show how effortlessly they can modulate their presence from foreground to background when allowing their partner to take the spotlight. Though their solo albums (particularly Buddy's "Poison Love") make more cohesive statements than this anthology, this is a superb place to get an appreciation of the duo's artistic arc. Fans who have the original albums will want to hear the scorching, unreleased take of "You Make My Heart Beat Too Fast."
