    It's all delivered with customary warmth and swing from Miller's home studio.

    Sometimes things sound more Jimmy ("I Lost My Job of Loving You"), sometimes more Buddy ("It Hurts Me," a searing ballad written by Miller's wife, Julie), but as with every good duets record, their combined voices have produced something greater than the sum of its parts.

    Mr. Miller and Mr. Lauderdale gave themselves a professional assignment that they could handle, as pals, with aplomb.

    Buddy & Jim in tandem is twice as nice and two of a kind.

    The two Nashville linchpins' close harmony duets and stellar guitar work uniting the eclecticism of styles.

    An eclectic, freewheeling set remarkable not just for its inter-twining guitars but for its vocals, too.

    Miller and Lauderdale's duets has both the easy familiarity of old friends and the musicianship of old pros. [Mar 2013, p.96]
