This ended Ed's period on Universal/MCA. Again a really solid release. It has actually a really 70's/80's sound. Ns guess the sounded an ext 70's sound at the moment of release - various from the new Country sound the was about to hit country music roughly this time.This is one album, ns have had actually for a long time, it to be an album I thought was ok at the moment of release, but as time has gone, the has certainly improved in my view. Ns think the factors connected are obtaining older, transforming tastes and also current commercial country music being in a an extremely dire place.Pretty lot all the monitor I deserve to listen to and enjoy. The best part of the album is next B. I price all the songs in between 4-5 stars. The ideal tracks are the title track "Tell 'Em I've unable to do Crazy"
, "Old Time's Sake", "Someone that Would Care" and also "If She simply Helps Me gain Over You". I think next B is probably the finest side Ed produced. Other songs that ns enjoy incorporate "Birds that Paradise", "She Never can Dance" and "If I just Knew What to Say". Every one of them space pretty good, however sometimes have actually a type of weird 70's disco vibe - you hear saxophone, sort of harking ago to the "Urban Cowboy" phase of country music. The is not as well bad, at all times Ed's voice tote the material very well, and also it continues to be solidly country. The weakest tracks room "Straight Shooter" which has a actual country-pop sound, and also "The adversary Inside", i m sorry I supplied to reap a lot, yet now I uncover the recitation part of the track a small annoying. Overall a great album for the Ed Bruce fan, and also definitely recommended. Because that newcomers the is no a bad starting point, but Varese's best of Ed Bruce, would still it is in the best beginning point in mine mind.
