After forty years in the music business and five Grammys or so, you'd think Marty Stuart would start thinking about cashing in is chips. But no. You'd be wrong. On his latest album, Saturday Night / Sunday Morning, Marty Stuart And His Fabulous Superlatives double down on that spot where R&B, Soul, and Country music meet. Every song on this 23 song, double CD collection called Saturday Night / Sunday Morning, speaks to the weekends we wish we'd had and the weekends we wished we regretted. Disc 1 of the set "Saturday Night" is the twangier dancing CD while Disc 2 is a gospel oriented set. And both discs have they soul music undercurrent in them that let's you know those are real human beings singing and playing for you.
There's hardly a weak track on this album, and I had to make hard choices, but I finally settled on these, in no particular order: "Uncloudy Day," "Mercy #1," "Angels Rock Me to Sleep," "Jailhouse," "Geraldine," "I'm Blue I'm Lonesome," "Rough Around The Edges," and "Life Has It's Little Ups And Downs."
- "I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome" is featured on Americana Music Show #229.
