Gene Watson: A Taste of Truth

(Shanachie, 2009):

Yeah, I complain a lot that most of the contemporary country music that you hear on the radio these days sounds like warmed-over semi-twang pop. I’m sorry; I just can’t help it.

Fortunately, this album makes me smile. It’s a classic throwback – not all the way back to those good ole Hank days (Williams-Thompson-Snow), but rather to the mid-’70s, when Gene Watson was a regular on the Country Hit Parade with such nuggets as “Love in the Hot Afternoon,” “Where Love Begins,” “Paper Rosie” and 20 more Top 10 hits.
