One Endless Night

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
His new album the first, in four years, is another stirring personal statement from Jimmie Dale Gilmore, but this time, the enigmatic Texan makes others' words his own and invests each lyric with a soul-shaking immediacy. John Hiatt, Townes Van Zandt, Butch Hancock, and even Kurt Weill are some of the first-rate songwriters in whom Gilmore finds his muse on ONE ENDLESS NIGHT. Gilmore's spectral croon also enlivens two songs he cowrote, the haunting title track and "Blue Shadows," an atmospheric Orbison-esque lover's lament written with the formidable Hal Ketchum.

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
His new album the first, in four years, is another stirring personal statement from Jimmie Dale Gilmore, but this time, the enigmatic Texan makes others' words his own and invests each lyric with a soul-shaking immediacy. John Hiatt, Townes Van Zandt, Butch Hancock, and even Kurt Weill are some of the first-rate songwriters in whom Gilmore finds his muse on ONE ENDLESS NIGHT. Gilmore's spectral croon also enlivens two songs he cowrote, the haunting title track and "Blue Shadows," an atmospheric Orbison-esque lover's lament written with the formidable Hal Ketchum. Regardless of the material's origin, Gilmore's sixth solo album is a further journey into the unsettled worldview he has been explicating since first we heard him on the Flatlanders' 1972 masterpiece, MORE A LEGEND THAN A BAND. Here the songs speak of spiritual dislocation, an ongoing quest for love and faith, and an understanding of nature's impact on the human condition. Come with an open heart -- there's nothing quite like a ride with Jimmie Dale Gilmore.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
After two critically acclaimed albums on Hightone Records in the 1980s, Jimmie Dale Gilmore moved up to major label Elektra in the '90s. But the kudos did not translate into sales -- only one of his three Elektra albums scraped into the bottom reaches of the country charts -- and by the turn of the century he was back on an independent: the folkie label Rounder (distributing his own Windcharger imprint). Three and a half years separated Braver New World, the last Elektra album, from One Endless Night, his Rounder debut, but Gilmore apparently hadn't spent much time writing in the interim. Of the 12 listed songs (there was also a bonus track, the rockabilly "DFW," referring to Fort Worth and Dallas), only two are co-written by the singer. One Endless Night is a compendium of Texas songwriting, including the work of Gilmore cronies and mentors Butch Hancock, Townes Van Zandt, Willis Alan Ramsey, and Walter Hyatt, as well as such familiar names as John Hiatt, Jesse Winchester, Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter, and Steve Gillette. Though Gilmore had always mixed his own compositions with covers, this album presents him as an interpretive singer.

    Alt Country Masterpiece

    Along with Joe Ely and Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore was one of the trio of Texas outlaw country stars who began as the Elatlanders over 35 years ago. He is less mainstream than Ely but less quirky than Hancock.This album finds him working with the great guitarist-producer Buddy Miller and enlisting many othr notable musicians. He sings his own songs and a couple by Hancock and covers songs from artists as diverse as the Grateful Dead, Townes Van Zandt, and Bobby Darin. His voice and the backing band give the whole album a dusty Southwest ambience. A few years ago I saw Gilmore in concert under the stars at Upper Merion, PA. He came over the same way he does on the CD, friendly and without pretense.

    Haunting and True

    This is an awesome cd. Free of the commercial trappings that ruin most music. It is a man a guitar and his words. Don't miss this one.

    One of the true gentlemen of entertainment

    Possibly his best album. The title track is great, but my favorite is ''Your Love is My Rest''. Beautiful, haunting melody, with memorable lyrics. I'm going from memory, but one of my favorite lines goes something like ''I stare at the land of Custer's Last Stand and I grin, So this is where old Yellow Hair's ghost dance begins''. Probably my favorite album of that year (1999?) in any genre. And his live concerts are awesome!
