Music my Dad listened to.
Is this style of country slick as ice? Sure! But is this album greatness? Why, yes it is! I grew up listening to this scratchy LP when I was little, and was very happy to find it finally on iTunes. Arnold had a tremendous voice, and the slick production values do not take away from the songs themselves. Listening to "That's How Much I Love You" as an adult, I was shocked by the veiled sexual references (which I never picked up as a kid). The song itself could also be said to be as close to rock and roll as country. And "Cattle Call" is just well....fantastic.
