252. Little late in responding and who knows if you'll even see this...
But I have to give a :thumbsup: on your last sentence.

Personally, one of the best CDs I ever heard was sometime ago when there were still "record stores".

I was in one just browsing around and then, all of a sudden Al Green is singing - so, I think to myself, cool. Al Green...and I'm grooving to it -

THEN - Lyle Lovett chimes in...and I think - wait - what? Al Green AND Lyle Lovett?

Sure enough. The CD: "Rhythm, County and Blues" by MCA.

In fact, it is chock full of Memphis meeting Nashville and is truly an incredible collaboration:


Legend: Title song, writer credits, performers:

1. "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" Valerie Simpson, Nickolas Ashford Vince Gill, Gladys Knight 3:53
2. "Funny How Time Slips Away" Willie Nelson Al Green, Lyle Lovett 4:33
3. "I Fall to Pieces" Hank Cochran, Harlan Howard Aaron Neville, Trisha Yearwood 3:47
4. "Somethin' Else" Bob Cochran, Sharon Sheeley Little Richard, Tanya Tucker 2:50
5. "When Something Is Wrong with My Baby" Isaac Hayes, David Porter Patti LaBelle, Travis Tritt 5:21
6. "Rainy Night in Georgia" Tony Joe White Sam Moore, Conway Twitty 5:13
7. "Chain of Fools" Don Covay Clint Black, The Pointer Sisters 3:42
8. "Since I Fell for You" Buddy Johnson Natalie Cole, Reba McEntire 4:18
9. "Southern Nights" Allen Toussaint Chet Atkins, Allen Toussaint 4:44
10. "The Weight" Robbie Robertson The Staple Singers, Marty Stuart 3:37
11. "Patches" Ronald Dunbar, General Johnson George Jones, B. B. King 6:14

Patti LaBelle & Travis Tritt really belt it do Natalie & Reba...along with the many others.

Neville and Yearwood are nothing less than tender.

Staple Singers and Marty Stuart really rock as do all of the other recordings in this set.

Last recording, I understand by Conway.

Shame that this is not more well-known. A true collaboration all the way around.

Someone ought to make a documentary about it if such clips about these sessions even exist.

Good stuff ~
