Prisoner of Love

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The unstoppable Ray Price has continually sought out new musical landscapes in which to give his astounding vocal talents free reign. PRISONER OF LOVE finds the Cherokee Cowboy in wonderful form on a collection of honky-tonk and pop standards backed by a swinging orchestra. Not unlike Willie Nelson's breakout STARDUST, this disc finds a veteran interpreter injecting a little country into the pop songbook. "Fly Me to the Moon," "What a Wonderful World," and the title cut show Price to be adept at making standards glow with his own personality and vision. Now in his mid-70's, Price is no longer the possessor of the high tenor that first caught the ears of Hank Williams fans in the early 1950s. His range has dropped ...

Now in his mid-70's, Price is no longer the possessor of the high tenor that first caught the ears of Hank Williams fans in the early 1950s. His range has dropped several notches, yet his smooth delivery still shines through, and the gravel in his voice belies the years of experience Price brings to these charts. PRISONER OF LOVE is a lush and precious disc. It's a gift from an old friend who survived the country music NIGHT LIFE for more than 50 years. The twinkle in Ray Price's voice leaves no doubt: It's been a beautiful journey so far. Karl Hagstrom Miller
All Music Guide - Campbell
Prisoner of Love is the first release from Ray Price since 1992's Sometimes a Rose. Here the Cherokee Cowboy continues his mixture of lush string arrangements with his outstanding ability to project melancholy lyrics. These 12 tracks are divided between the country side of his repertory "I've Got a New Heartache" and "Better Class of Losers" along with standards like "Fly Me to the Moon" and "Body and Soul."

    He is unbelievable! A legend!

    All his songs are beautiful! I just love his "Soft Rain" song. He wrote it, you know. I have that song in several of his LP's and CD's. I just love it. He has changed his rendition of it many times over the years. His mentor was Hank Williams. Hank was a very prolific song writer. There will never be another Hank. However, I didn't really like his voice. So, when Ray Price came along, I was in heaven. This album is a softer side of Ray. His Ramblin' Rose and In My Life, I Wish I Was Eighteen Again...all these songs are a tribute to his incredible versatility, his ability to sing in any genre is amazing. I have been a fan of Mr. Price since I was 17 and heard him for the first time. I couldn't get enough of him. I have been a faithful fan all my life. To me, he is and always will be the best singer in any genre ever. I know you will also enjoy and appreciate his wonderful voice. His voice touches every fiber of your being...you can feel his pain and tears...

    A Touch of Class

    Ray Price has been around for over 50 years. This says a lot for artists in all styles of music. Prisoner of Love has a lot of classic songs done in a classy style. ''Fly Me to the Moon'', ''Rambling Rose'', ''Soft Rain'' are my personal favorites. All the songs are good. If you like strings in music like I do then this is a must. The Nashville Sound is the best!!

    'Prisoner of Love' is Ray Price at his best!

    I became a fan of Price's sensitive style and magnificent voice in 1967 when he released 'Danny Boy.' Since then I've collected everything I can find of his that he recorded before and since. 'Prisoner of Love' is delightful. Ray proves he can handle every kind of song from country to jazz to ballad. There's an upbeat quality to the songs in this album that I just love. They're all different, everything from 'Body and Soul' to the Beatle-tune, 'In My Time' to 'If It's Love (Bet it All). With this collection, this great artist proves once again that he is much more than a country legend--as grand as that is. He's an American legend--and truly a singer for all seasons and styles. I highly, highly recommend this CD.
