Dreamin' My Dreams

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.
