Landon Dodd’s CD “Call Of The Wine” sets a new standard for greatness
The Country Classics received Landon Dodd’s new CD “Call Of The Wine” today and the CD is truly impressive. Every single track is outstanding, and we couldn’t wait for the next track. If you ordered CD’s only to find out that you were skipping tracks, we’re here to tell you that won’t be the case with “Call Of The Wine”. You will enjoy every song on this great CD, and the CD sets a new standard for country music.
I’ve heard a lot of music in the last sixty years, and its been a long time since I listened to and enjoyed a great CD like Landon Dodd’s “Call Of The Wine”. The CD is now available on CD Baby.
Manufactured by National Recording Corporation in Rome Georgia “Call Of The Wine” is a Heart Of Texas Records CD. Landon Dodd is in good company with Jake Hooker on bass, Jim Loessberg on bass guitar, Dave Biller on electric guitar, and Bobby Flores and Justin Trevino on acoustic guitar. Randy Reinhard plays piano on this great CD, while Bobby Flores plays fiddle and Jim Loessberg plays drums.
Rounding out the musical talent are Dickey Overbey, Bobby Flores, and Jim Loessberg on steel guitar. Harmony vocals by Justin Trevino, Amber Digby, and Leona Williams give you an idea of why “Call Of The Wine” became so popular so fast.
We start out with the title track “Call Of The Wine”, a Johnny Dollar tune superbly performed by Landon Dodd, as are all the songs on the CD. Track two has always been a favorite of many – “I Bought The Shoes (That Just Walked Out On Me)”. It’s a Joe Simpson and Steve Stone song.
“Good Year For The Roses” is the third track, written by Jerry Chesnut. “Good Year for the Roses” has been recorded by George Jones, Elvis Costello, Counting Crows, Johnny Paycheck and others but I like the Landon Dodd version. In fact I like the entire CD. You get your money’s worth with this CD.
“Perfect Stranger”, written by Lorene Allen and K.L. Starr is the forth track on “Call Of The Wine”, and the listener begins to appreciate the song selection for the CD. Fans of country music couldn’t ask for more.
“New Lips” is the fifth track, and it starts with beautiful steel guitar. Landon’s voice is strong and stunning. You can really enjoy dancing to this song written by John David Carver.
Looking ahead I saw Leona Williams’ name on the CD, and track six is a duet with Leona. “We’re Off And Loving Again”, written by Leona Williams, is so good I thought about playing it twice but decided to play the entire CD twice instead. Landon Dodd’s strong voice compliments Leona Williams beautiful voice nicely.
“Face The Music” is the seventh track on the “Call Of The Wine” CD. Written by Jimmie Helms, “Face The Music” is a great honky tonk song that guarantees you’ll be tapping your toe. The listener begins to find out that the music mix on “Call Of The Wine” is great because the songs have not been over-played and the music is fresh.
The great Fred Carter song “I Want To Hear It From You” is track number eight. Landon Dodd does a wonderful job with this Ray Price hit, and it is a tribute to Landon’s voice and a wonderful job by the band. I know Ray Price is smiling, Landon Dodd’s fans won’t be disappointed, and Ray Price’s fans won’t be either. Congratulations for putting this song on “Call Of The Wine”, and the superb manner in which it is performed.
“Mr. Right And Mrs. Wrong” is up next. Written by Kent Westberry and Hal Harbour, the song is a duet with Amber Digby. Landon Dodd thanked Amber Digby on Facebook for being “Mrs. Wrong”, but there is nothing wrong about this great tune. It’s a honky tonker’s dream come true, and fantastic.
Track ten is “I Went To Bed Loving You”, written by Glen Barber. The song makes a strong impression and reminds the listener of Landon Dodd’s great voice. Once again I’m thrilled with the songs on the CD.
“What A Liar I Am” written by Buck Owens, is track eleven. Kicked off with great fiddle playing, the honky tonk comes out in all of us with this great song. Fans of classic and traditional country music are winners with “Call Of The Wine”, and my regret is coming to the end of this fascinating CD.
“There’s Something About A Lady” is track twelve. It’s a great way to wrap things up, and this Johnny Duncan song is another perfect choice for “Call Of The Wine”. The song shows off the band, has beautiful fiddle and steel, and Landon’s strong voice is perfect.
Here at The Country Classics we’re so glad Landon Dodd sent us his new CD. It’s so refreshing to listen to a CD where every song is great. Y’all bought CD’s where you like one, or two, or maybe three songs, and skip a few. This CD is not one of those!
Our readers like good country music, and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed by “Call Of The Wine” by Landon Dodd. You will like every song, won’t skip and of them, and you’ll most likely play the entire CD again.
