  1. “I feel very privileged to own this album, not only because Don covers some classic tracks in his own inimitable way, but because, thanks to my friend Mary in Nashville, I was given this album by Don himself, signed, and handed to me personally by Tony Migliore, at the London concert in June 2000.

    Having heard Don perform a handful of these songs Live, both at the Sound Check and In Concert, the memories flood back through &#39Singin&#39 The Blues&#39, &#39Devil Woman&#39 and &#39You Gave Me A Mountain&#39.

    Pure Country, delivered to perfection, my favourite is &#39El Paso&#39, with &#39Among My Souvenirs&#39 and &#39Kaw Liga&#39 right up there too.

    Great covers – it&#39s been a long wait since &#39Playin&#39 Favorites&#39 but well worth the wait. (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  3. “I too have just acquired this album… I second everything that Cookie said, even to the best songs! They are all SO wonderful! This is the best cover album I have heard ever- such gentle, beautiful music… absolute bliss. A million out of five, as always! You&#39re a legend, Don! (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  4. “I purchased this CD at his concert in Ludington, Mich. I was not familiar with Marty Robbins until Don talked about him. I was very impressed with the album. I would give it a 5. Don&#39s version of these songs is beautiful. (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  5. “At last! Don seems to have passed through the Curb cloud and come up with something decent. This has a lovely sound: light of touch, yet full of depth. Don&#39s voice sounds better than for ages and (apart from the last track which has terrible lyrics) he&#39s chosen the songs with skill. (Rated 4 out of 5)”

  6. “Best tribute to Marty I have ever Heard.Marty has been a favorite of mine for many years, Don did him and his music justice. I&#39m and old fan of marty and a new old fan of Don. (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  7. “Got copy of cd at concert in Lincoln city Oregon. Listened to it on the way home, and have listened to it over and over again. What a great production of Martys works. Don, your voice is strong and beautiful and the concert was wonderful. Hurry back to Oregon I miss you already. Thank you for sharing your special gift of song and emotion and thank you too for the autograph and the smile. (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  8. “I&#39d like there to be a sequel to this album. I think there are some wonderful songs Don left out. “”Big Iron”” is one of them.
    This album is still beutiful though.
    Keep the great albums coming Don! (Rated 5 out of 5)”
