Overview

Twenty-three years after their last collaboration -- San Antonio Rose, which recently saw reissue -- veteran honky-tonkers Willie Nelson and Ray Price join their genial souls for another splendid, tuneful outing. The material is strictly vintage, from the Fred Rose–penned Bob Wills western swing classic "Deep Water" to Price's own shuffling tear-jerker "Soft Rain" to a couple of fine Willie originals, such as the vivid heartbreak chronicle "I'm So Ashamed" and the teary lament "I'm Still Not Over You." A tight and basic honky-tonk ensemble of guitars, bass, pedal steel, and fiddle back Willie and Ray, who trade off verses with aplomb, one sneaking in under the other as a line ends, their readings overflowing with feeling. Their obvious affection and respect for each other is as endearing as it is warmhearted. Introspection and broken hearts rule the day on the 11 tracks here, but the fellows pick up the pace from time to time, notably on the bright shuffle of "Home in San Antone" and the lively, fiddle-fired stomp of the witty title song. Can't go wrong with this one: seasoned pros singing from the heart about the stuff of life and doing it with style, savvy, and soul. They should go on meeting like this.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Willie Nelson and Ray Price reconvene for a second outing of Texas honky tonk and Western swing tunes, 23 years after their first duet recording, the venerable San Antonio Rose. Recorded and engineered by Joe Gracey at the World Headquarters studios in Luck, TX, Run That By Me One More Time was produced by Nelson and Price. It features 11 really glorious selections that run the gamut from the classic Fred Rose numbers "Deep Water," which opens the album, and "Home in San Antone" to a sentimental reading of Floyd Tillman's "This Cold War With You" and co-writes like the amazing "I've Just Destroyed the World I'm Living In," by the dynamic duo itself. While Price wrote the beautiful and moving "Soft Rain" that appears here, a pair of Nelson cuts -- "I'm So Ashamed" and "I'm Still Not Over You" -- are the finest things on the record. Both of them have appeared on Nelson outings available only on the Internet, but with Price's voice added to the mix, they have a deeper resonance. With the exception of Rose's "Home in San Antone," which appears in the dead center of the recording, the album is comprised of nothing but broken love songs offering a counterweight to the good-time feel of the disc. Speaking of feel, the sound of this album is quite remarkable. It's been a while since Willie's guitar playing has been given this kind of showcasing or has sounded so rich and full, and the Texas fiddle band setup is recorded as such without a boatload of embellishment. Price's voice, considerably more ragged but even more right, lends texture, warmth, and a kind of west Texas edge to the sound of the band here, as does David Zettner's pedal steel. Of all the Willie Nelson recordings out there from 2000 to the present, this is easily the best of them. It's consistent and full of warmth, good-natured looseness, and absolutely killer songs.
Rolling Stone - Pat Blashill
A short and bittersweet affair with western-swing music.
Entertainment Weekly - Rob Brunner
The out-of-time Time has the gentle sway of a weathered porch swing. (B+)
