The Time)

When
I was asked to review “Lefty Fest” I was extremely excited being that I’m a
huge fan of “Real Country” music and of Lefty Frizzell. If You’ve Got The Money
(I’ve Got The Time) still is one of my favorite songs and honestly one that I
know all the words to. In my opinion he was one of the singers that saved Honky
Tonk by making it smoother and easier to understand. Unfortunately, Lefty died
way to young due to alcoholism.

Lefty
and Friends was recorded live during the first “Lefty Fest” and features a lot
of songs I know you will recognize. The album features several artists from
David and Allen Frizzell to Paulette Carlson, Marty Haggard, Lacy J. Dalton and
Sarah Patrick. However, this album is very disappointing and quite honestly
difficult to listen to at times. Many of the songs are off key, scratchy and at
times a large vocal stretch. While many of the artist on this album are very
well respected on their own, this album never need to be made. The album is a
test of patience from beginning to end with only a one respite of enjoyment by
Sarah Patrick on I Ain’t No Angel.

While
the album was intended to be a tribute to the music and talent of Lefty Frizell
it honestly pays no respects to him or his legacy of
Country Music. I give this album 1 out of 5 stars and that star is for Sarah
Patrick.
