David Ball: Heartaches by the Number
That is the message of David Ball’s Please Feed the Jukebox.
On his new release, Heartaches by the Number, David Ball pays a special tribute to the great classic country songs that were such an influence on his own music. Ball’s 1993 Top 20 Country hit Thinking Problem was one of the rare contemporary commercial country songs that had the feel and soul of the classic songs of country’s golden age. But then, David Ball has always been country music’s renaissance man.
This CD has the feel and sound of those classic albums, due in part to Ball’s great vocals and his heartfelt appreciation of authentic country music. To further the link to the classic sound, Ball recorded the tracks “live” in the studio with an impressive lineup of sidemen.
David Ball pays tribute to the great songs of Ray Price, Webb Pierce, Hank Williams, Hank Locklin, and Bob Wills and tops if off with the only original song on the CD, Please Feed The Jukebox, in which he urges us to “Take good care of these old songs”.
David Ball has treated these classics with honor, talent and enthusiasm.
