Live: It Was Just a Matter of Time

Live: It Was Just a Matter of Time

by Randy Travis



Where live albums such as Radney Foster's spectacular Are You Ready for the Big Show? may serve to introduce mostly new songs to his audience, New Traditionalist pioneer Randy Travis treads on more traditional ground -- the live album as greatest hits -- with equally stunning results. Travis, his vocals resonant with echoes of Lefty Frizzell and George Jones, is at his very apex as an interpreter here, whether he's being frisky on "Better Class of Losers" (co-written with Alan Jackson), avuncular and worldy wise on the philosophical ballad "Spirit of a Boy, Wisdom of a Man," or scintillatingly bluesy on a cover of the Brook Benton classic "Just a Matter of Time." The Travis canon, though, rides roughshod over everything else: "On the Other Hand," "Forever and Ever Amen," "Diggin' Up Bones," "Hard Rock Bottom of Your Heart," and a medley of monuments such as "Storms of Life," "Is It Still Over," "Honky Tonk Moon" and others, works those heartstrings in the way only a masterful artist can. Toss in a couple of fine songs from his spiritual album, Inspirational Journey ("Shallow Water" and "Baptism"), and you've been treated to set of songs as fresh as the day they were released. Timeless, as some would say.
