George Strait Album: “Blue Clear Sky”

George Strait Album: “Blue Clear Sky”
Description :
Personnel: George Strait (vocals); Biff Watson (acoustic guitar, Wurlitzer); Steve Gibson, Brent Mason (acoustic & electric guitars); Paul Franklin (steel guitar); Stuart Duncan (fiddle); Matt Rollings (piano, Wurlitzer); Farrell Morris (vibraphone); Glenn Worf (bass); Eddie Bayers (drums); Curtis Young, Liana Manis (background vocals). <p>Recorded at Emerald Studios, Nashville, Tennessee. <p>All tracks have been digitally mastered using HDCD technology. <p>BLUE CLEAR SKY won the 1996 Country Music Association Award for Album Of The Year, and George Strait won the C.M.A. award for Male Vocalist Of The Year. <p>George Strait, one of the most widely admired and emulated singers in modern country, opens up emotionally on BLUE CLEAR SKY. It's a rangy album that touches on several different tempos and styles, from the classically weepy "I Can Still Make Cheyenne" to the playfully swingy "I Ain't Never Seen No One Like You." <p>With his stately voice buttressed by a versatile band of backing musicians, Strait shows he can still whip out classic country sounds like the frisky "Do The Right Thing" and the introspective "King Of The Mountain." But he closes with the refreshing "Need I Say More," a piano-based lounge number that seems to have been inspired by his duet with Frank Sinatra on 1995's STRAIT OUT OF THE BOX. As Strait croons "let me show you what true love's all about," one can picture him clad in a tuxedo underneath his trademark 10-gallon chapeau. It's a fitting image for one of Nashville's classier acts.

- All Hail King of Country

Blue Clear Sky is one of Georges best records in the 90's...Great classics like Blue Clear Sky. Carried Away, King Of the Mountain, Still Make, make your feet stopping and you mouth a singing. Great country artist, albam, and songs...Worth the bucks to get...Trust Me

- George Rules!

Another great cd from the world's greatest Country singer! BLUE CLEAR SKY features the title track, "Carried Away" and one of the very few slow songs that I really like "I Can Still Make Cheyenne". Buy this cd. Become a fan!

- Clearly a great album

George Strait hit his peak with Blue Clear Sky. The hit title song, "Blue Clear Sky", about finding true love when you least expect it, is an enjoyable, upbeat song. The ballad "Carried Away", the rodeo song "I Can Still Make Cheyenne", and the waltz "King Of The Mountain" were also huge hits off the record, and George does all of them well. The other songs here are the breakup song "I'd Just As Soon Go", the upbeat honky-tonk numbers "I Ain't Never Seen No One Like You" and "Do The Right Thing", the reflective songs "Rockin' In The Arms Of Your Memory" and "She Knows When You're On My Mind", and the romantic song "Need I Say More" which closes the album. These are all solid, powerful songs. Only one record George has made since he made this one, Always Never The Same, comes close to being as great. I think Blue Clear Sky is "clearly" a great album.
