Recorded at the height of the rock & roll establishment's infatuation with George Jones in the late '70s, Bartender's Blues is one of the most misdirected albums in his catalog. Though the production is dated, leaning too close to the soft-rock with its electric pianos, the main flaw is its uneven material. Apart from the excellent weeper "I'll Just Take It Out In Love," the strongest song is the title track, which is James Taylor's impression of what life in a honky tonk must be. Despite the occasional weak song, Jones gives it his all throughout the record, which by and large keeps the album entertaining.
This is sadly my favorite song.
As a bartender – Bartender's Blues is my 'Last Call' song. And because, at 4 am I am just playing to stew bums and and a lot of other bartenders - this song has become a sing-a-long; 8 years running. I don't normally review. But because there are no other reviews and because the iTunes review is so wishy-washy – I had to say check out Bartender's Blues. Crazy enough, written and back round vocals by James Talyor. Yes, that James Taylor.
