This album is one of Don Joy’s earlier
works, released in 2009, but I wanted to listen to what he was doing
back then, and not surprisingly he was doing some super great classic
country music.  All twelve songs on this album are originals by Don.  I
was especially impressed with the very first song, the words are so
meaningful, and so well placed in the rhythmic pattern he set with this
very well recorded song.  Don sings a lot about love, lost love, and how
to get it all back again.  He farms down in Missouri, so he has
a ‘special’ attachment to reality and the purity of what country music
once was, and is so lacking today.  They say the pen is mightier than he
sword, and Don Joy certainly proves that with this album.  He went to
Tennessee to record this one, utilizing the Sound Control Studio of Mark
Moseley for the finished product.  These are all good Tennessee
musicians on the session, and they sound like they are having a whale of
a good time recording ‘real’ country music.  They backed Don all the
way through with a very nice country sound, especially the steel which
is predominate throughout.  Don insisted on good fiddle and piano too,
so you know what to expect from this fine recording.  We keep hearing a
lot of whining today about no good original ‘real’ county music coming
out of Nashville, but if those stupid decision makers would take the
money out of their ears they could ‘hear’ what real country music still
is.  It’s not locked in time, or wasted away in the past, it’s very
‘real’ and it’s very ‘available.’  It’s on this album by Don Joy.  I’ve
heard at least five really great country songs on this album that could
be ‘hit’ material for any ‘real’ country star.  I’ve already sent
several of Don Joy’s CD’s to the Rural Roots Music Commission, and this
one will go there too.  I’m pretty sure they are going to like this one
just as much as I do.  Much continued success in ‘real’ country music
Don Joy, don’t let it die away, keep up the good work.
