This was quite an ambitious project and it was brought off very successfully by Stanley and producer Dick Freeland. There no less than 31 cuts on this double CD and a most impressive array of guest artists join with Ralph to provide uniformlu excellent music.It's somewhat amazing to see how such diverse talents can be assimilated into the Stanley sound: George Jones, Dwight Yoakum, Patty Lovelass, Charlie Waller, Larry Sparks, Jimmy Martin, Vince Gill, Bill Monroe, Judy Marshall, Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall and Charlie Sizemore. Everyone sounds good here, as well as "right"--the sound is very definitely the "Stanley sound" throughout. It is a tribute to the man and his music that all these artists blend so well; they show a real respect and enjoyment of the music. Not surprisingly, Larry Sparks,Charlie Sizemore and Ricky Skaggs sound particularly good in duets with Stanley, but Yoakum, Gill, Loveless and all the others are strong to in their own ways. There are no weak cuts on the set. Pretty neat stuff
