    An affectionate collection of Walker's songs. [Aug 2012, p.80]

    It's intensely devotional, but intensely satisfying.

    This is a record for fans of Jerry Jeff, certainly, who will appreciate these reverent covers from an obvious and devoted acolyte. But, for Snider's fans the album will be even more powerful; as a celebration of his deepest influence.

    Snider seems to know he'll never top Walker's original recordings, but he sure likes sharing these tunes that he clearly loves and understands, and enough of that soul and belief is caught on tape to make this as purely enjoyable as anything Snider has released in the past decade.

    It's lovingly curated, shambolic in all the right places, and celebrates the Texas troubadour's 70th birthday in high style, with an emphasis on the high.

    It's clearly a labor of love but should also help Walker's tunes (and extensive career) get discovered by Snider's younger, hipper fan base.

    It's loose and rough – just how Jerry Jeff would want it.

    The homage is wearing a little thin, and it's time someone called last orders. [Sep 2012, p.112]
