The introduction really set the tone by making the album feel more personal. Can't think of a record that starts with one, but I love it here. This is some real tears-in-your-beer kind of music, but I am here for it. Lyrically, it's great, and vocally, it's superb. Ray Price is a hell of a singer, and really conveys those emotions directly into me. Also, holy hell, Willie Nelson on bass and backing vocals? Neat. Favorite tracks: "Night Life", "Sittin' and Thinkin'", "There's No Fool Like a Young Fool"

I didn’t find any favorites here, but a very classic country sound with lots of steel and slide guitar. Cool find, should know the artist at least.

A focused set of country takes, but in the honky-tonk style which has never completely won me over. Comparisons to Sinatra are ubiquitous; For my part I'll say that Price doesn't have the affect problem I mentioned. There's solid fiddling on several tunes as well, elevating the music above the level of the rest of the playing.

Whether you like country or not, there are some finely crafted songs on this album delivered by some magnificent musicians and Price, who is an engaging singer with a great voice. There’s an undertone of darkness and restlessness throughout and you can depict the seediness of the nightclubs Price frequents. Frankly, if you’re not enjoying that fiddling and a backing band known as The Cherokee Cowboys; or you aren’t vibing with songs like Bright Lights and Blonde Haired Women then I don’t even want to know you.

Oikein mukavaa countryrallattelua. Ei tätä genreä mielestäni oikein paremmin voi toteuttaa. Laulajan ääni oli miellyttävä, ja vaikka biiseissä ei suurempia erikoisuuksia ollutkaan, toimi kokonaisuus erittäin hienosti. Yleisenä musiikkinautintona antaisin tästä kolmosen, mutta nyt pitää kyllä antaa genressään lähes virheettömästä suorituksesta pieni boonus.

Good classic hony-tonkish country. I've heard the name Ray Price before, but don't really recall ever hearing any of his music. I threw the album on and started doing some minor research on its history and saw that Willie Nelson is credited on a couple tracks. Then notice that one of them was "Are You Sure", which is a song that I first heard on Lost (yeah, yeah...) and I immediately fell in love with it. It's probably the moment I started really taking a lot of the classic, outlaw type country more seriously and I'd just never realized it had an earlier incarnation. This is just great news! Oh, and the album here is solid. Not much to complain about. 4 stars!

Enjoyable. Classic honky tonk music with a bit of a sleepy, sometimes torchy vibe. It takes a few songs to settle into it, then it's pretty great. The only drag on the whole thing honestly is that weird intro, which was really unnecessary. Fave Songs: Pride, If She Could See Me Now, Bright Lights and Blonde Haired Women, Sittin' and Thinkin', The Twenty-Fourth Hour, Night Life

Good stuff. I'ma sound old here, but I love the old country and can't stomach new country. It reminds me of 80's hair rock. Only diff is that the lyrics aren't about partying. They're about drinking alone, sitting on tractors they've probably never driven, and supporting white supremacy. The lyrics haven't changed much, but the music has.

This is a lot of fun. Would make a great movie soundtrack, too, which is my bias reflecting how this style of music is sometimes used in movies I've liked. I so rarely listen consciously to country & western like this, and it's nice to hear that swing beat. Could waltz to a lot of this. He croons perfectly for this style. Nice album.

I really the fact that the album has an intro to put the listener in the mood. It was the best beginning of an album of this genre I've ever heard. I'm a fan of this era and this kind of country/crooner singers. They give a strong impression of their time. It's weird to say, but their music is timelessly outdated and that's the best part of it.

This was a welcomed listen and I was into it until about the third song when I realized that they all sound roughly the same and rely heavily on his voice. However, this album opened up a door that I didn't know existed. RP is prolific and has recorded a TON and even had Willie Nelson in his band. Anyway, this may not have been the best album to start with, but he's been added to my list of musicians to explore a little further.

Pretty decent traditional country album. It seemed like ray price had the old traditional lyrics and songwriting but his guitar playing and melodies sounded a bit what the 70s and 80s turned into. I enjoyed it and didn’t find it too old and slow as some country albums are. 6.2/10

This really old country stuff is alright.

Well this is certainly outside of my wheelhouse :) I was completely amused by the "introduction" - how he welcomes the listeners to the Columbia product (RAY YOU CORPORATE SHILL). Yow - they loved to drench his voice in cavernous reverb. So I'm not a country fan but I didn't completely dislike it, it's more a slow american western blues. I was a bit tired of the pedal-steel (no slight to the playing whatsoever; I know how difficult it is) as it really defines the sound. I liked to think of it as a soundtrack to a slow-moving 60s movie . Probably won't listen again but it's good to get an education on this classic American musician (also: Willie Nelson plays bass!) 6/10 3 stars

Ray Price and Night Life are new to me, although there was at least one track ("The Wild Side of Life") that I have heard by other artists. Night Life is full of gentle, almost sleepy, country swing. The album seems to be presented as an invitation for people to go out and enjoy the night life, and dancing. The music is pretty good, but the lyics share prominently chauvanistic view of women as a temptation that men cannot resist. I can't seem to overlook the lyrics in favor of the underlying music from these talented musicians.

Growing up, a local radio station used to have an hour of music such as this, but a bit less country, every evening. They called that hour Twilight Time, and I used to hate it but my mother would always have it on. Nostalgia may be dreadful, but one cannot deny the yearning for simpler days, days that now seem free of worries (but, in actuality, were anything but).

It's hard for me to sometimes give such low scores to music that sounds so honest. But within the context of this list, where it's supposed to be about albums that are actually crucial to the history of modern music, or about albums that maybe weren't that influential but are notable by themselves, this one for me doesn't come as a member of any of these two categories. Is it good music? Yes. Is it something I had to listen to get something that I wouldn't be able to get from any other album? I hardly think so

of its time i suppose. the music and instrumentation is mostly just a vehicle for the story so composition is largely ignored. on top of that, the stories were sort of plain and predictable.

It was rather refreshing to open the album with Ray telling me about the theme and background. It was almost like he was starting a talk at a conference. Unfortunately, this style of country just isn’t my thing. Ray’s theme is dancing songs from their shows around the country. Well, they must have all been slow dances because the pace is sedated. This seems like ideal music for a lazy river ride in the Deep South.

A good representation of its style, I suppose, and a style that I like more than some kinds of country music, but too... droning? Monotonous? Dull? I dunno, in my groggy post-nap stupor I'm having trouble coming up with the right words. Willie Nelson, early in his career, played on this album. Willie's a cool dude.

Never Heard of Ray Price or this album so at first listen my view is he is a cross between Roy Orbison and Jim Reeves and Willie Nelson. So can hear the influence he has had, Like the Willie Nelson written "Nightlife" but the rest is much of a HonkyTonk Muchness. Not one for me I am afraid.

The title track is quite a pleasant surprise, actually. It's a blues-meets-country-and-they-go-to-a-swing-concert type of track, that I quite enjoy. I was hoping the rest of the album would be cut of a similar cloth, but alas! No. ... The rest is run-of-the-mill old style country with cringy lyrics for good measure, and I found myself fast forwarding all the way until the end. *sigh* 2/5

Liked the smooth introduction and a few ballads here and there like the title track and Sittin and Thinkin, but nearly fell asleep. I do see it in the backdrop a film set in the 60s or even earlier and would be pleasent in the background of a party.

This album lines up with the stereotypes of country music that I was indoctrinated to dislike as a youth. The album has the feel of a honky-tonk meets crooner longue act, which could potentially be enjoyable, if wasn't for the fact that the whole thing is so monotonous and monotoned. For kicks, listen to the first 10 seconds of the tracks 'A Girl in the Night', 'Pride' and 'If She Could See Me Now' respectively, and see if you can figure out which is which. And that's kind of my problem with the whole thing. It's basically the same song, over and over and over again. Heck, the first distinguishing moment I heard in any of these songs didn't come until 1m15s into the 11th track (out of 13). It's like the whole album is just one big song, or that each song is just a shortened version of the whole album. In effect I listened to the whole album 13 times, and that's about 12.5 times more than I ever wish I had.

I'm already not a huge fan of country music from this era, and this album didn't sway my opinion. I don't think Ray Price did much on this album to define the country genre in the 60s as compared to many of his peers (Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard), and he himself certainly has more country-sounding music out there, so I can only assume this inclusion comes down to him going more country-crooner on this album, which is somewhat unique when compared to most country singers at the time. Not a bad listen, but still not really my thing.

Curious amalgam of Frank Sinatra, Frank Ifield and Hank Williams, but considerably inferior to all three. Surely worst version of 'Wild side of life' ever recorded.

Bien sûr, le lien Tidal n'est pas le bon (par ici pour le bon: https://tidal.com/album/65017341). Pas dans mes cordes.

Otro disco que no estaría aquí si el autor no estuviese obsesionado con los gringos. Es cierto que para nosotros la música occidental está predominantemente representada por gringos, tanto así que el Rock es, básicamente, la música tradicional de occidente desde la segunda mitad del siglo xx. Pero escuchar Country es como escuchar una música regionalista, una cosa muy diminuta que pertenece a un grupo bastante pequeño en comparación a toda la gente que vive en Occidente. ¿Porqué habría de estar tan sobrerrepresentado?
