CD reviews for Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale

Buddy and Jim CD review - Buddy and Jim
The 11 songs that make up the new album by Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale are nothing different from the straight-forward country songs they've been turning out for years. There's a rocker or two, a ballad or two, a Cajun dance tune and a country shuffle, all solidly written and unpretentiously presented. Likewise, the production values and the song arrangements that comprise the 35 minutes or so of music on "Buddy and Jim" are nothing much to write home about. »»»
