Album Review

The concept behind The Bradley Barn Sessions was an intriguing one: place George Jones in the hands of traditionalist country producer Brian Ahern, record at Owen Bradley's legendary studios, compile a selection of Jones' greatest hits, and have him sing duets with contemporary vocalists (and Tammy Wynette) who have cited him as an influence. In theory, it should have worked, but in practice, it's a stilted, nearly lifeless album. The production is too clean and polished, lacking any of the grit of true honky tonk records. Furthermore, songs like "A Good Year for the Roses" suffer from the stringless, stripped-down arrangements. And though all of Jones' duet partners — including Marty Stuart, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Trisha Yearwood, and Travis Tritt — are respectful, only Keith Richards captures the spirit of a roadside honky tonk.

Customer Reviews

Must Have!

This is one of those occasions where a tribute cd really works. Jones sounds great and the production and guest performers all support him and do justice to his music and legacy. This is a memorable album and one I've enjoyed since it was release in '94.

Awesome

Ive owned this album for well over ten years and I still enjoy listening to it. It doesnt contain a bad song, and Jones is in fine voice here. The concept behind this album may seem gimmicky, but the results are excellent. One of the best George Jones records of the 1990s.

A Gotta Have!!!

The whole album is 5 stars. Hands down. My favorite is Say It's Not You, with Keith richard. At first thought an unlikely duet, damned if they didn't make it work. Quite well. Good job boys.

By most accounts, George Jones was the finest vocalist in the recorded history of country music. Initially, he was a hardcore honky tonker in the tradition of Hank Williams, but over the course of his career he developed an affecting, nuanced ballad style. In the course of his career, he never left the top of the country charts, even as he suffered innumerable personal and professional...
