Album Review: Radney Foster’s Del Rio Texas Revisited: Unplugged and Lonesome
After an incredibly productive partnership with fellow songwriter Bill Lloyd, Radney Foster set out on his own and recorded a stunning solo country album titled Del Rio Texas, TX 1959. The album had two songs hit the Top 10 Country charts and found admirers among both critics and country music fans. After failing to convince his label to re-issue the classic album, Foster sat down in a studio and re-recorded every song, dubbing the new effort Del Rio Texas Revisited: Unplugged and Lonesome. Lucky for us, Foster’s effort paid off big time. Music journalist Lynne Margolis gives us a review of the new/old album and helps us rediscover one of country music’s gems.
