Album Review

Roy Drusky had been off the charts for over five years when he made Country Sunshine, and had not had a major hit in over a decade. Who would have predicted, then, that the commercially dubious enterprise of bringing back this aged country crooner from the Nashville sound era would yield such a rewarding and poignant album? Country Sunshine's "Blue Skies" and "September Song" convey the same end-of-life melancholy and optimism as Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" or Jimmy Durante's 1963 album, September Song. "Room Full of Roses" and "You Are My Sunshine" pay tribute to country music history, and even the Oak Ridge Boys' "Sail Away" strikes just the right note as the album's closer.

Unfortunately, the album was a flop and will never be widely heard unless an astute Hollywood music producer someday puts Drusky's "Blue Skies" over the end credits of a motion picture.
