Joshua Judges Ruth album for sale Product Description

Joshua Judges Ruth album for sale by Lyle Lovett was released Mar 31, 1992 on the MCA (USA) label. In the wake of the stylistic curveball that was LYLE LOVETT & HIS LARGE BAND, the Texas singer/songwriter took the opportunity afforded by his newfound fame to indulge in as many different musical styles as he pleased on JOSHUA JUDGES RUTH (an album title drawn from three books of the Bible, that slyly tips its hat to Lovett's penchant for detailing woman trouble).   ...See Full Description

Audiophile's dream
This disc was a truly excellent discovery! for a disc that was recorded so long ago it sounds great. All of the songs are a joy to listen to and I cannot imagine what Julia Roberts was thinking when she gave up on Lyle! Blaine d

Probably the best recorded CD ever...!!!!
I am not the only one claiming the wonderful production and recording audio qualities of such a gem, beside that the artistic content is excellent too, a must in every collection.

This title is supposed to be DVD-Audio but my player (a Pioneer DV-45A) only recognizes a normal CD layer (and from the sound quality, that is clearly what I am hearing). Don't know if this is a compatibility issue or a problem with the pressing of this disc, but it's the first time this has happened.

The Gospel of the Strange Friend
Own "Joshua Judges Ruth," that's the only review you need to read. But if you must know why, then be my guest... It's VERY easy to push an artist to the wayside despite a record company's, or artist's, for that matter, aggrandizing hype, marketing, or popularity campaign (I mean, I've still managed not to buy a Backstreet Boys CD). But every once-in-awhile, those record company stiffs no what they're talking about. I have a question for you: When have you EVER heard a Lyle Lovett song on the radio? Better yet, why the hell do I know who he is but have never heard anything he's done. Is he the proverbial tree that's fallen alone in the forest but whose sound doesn't exist because no one is there to hear it? I like to think of my taste as being rather eclectic, but I can't ever recall hearing him on a country station, either, nor do I believe those stations play him. Yet I know who he is. How is this? Well, the only conclusion I can draw is great players need not be heard to be great, and those of us (myself included) who aren't in-the-know are unfortunately in-the-out. I truly have seen the light with Lyle Lovett's soulful, gospel-laden CD, Joshua Judges Ruth, and the musicianship and community he displays on it. This CD is, and will be for a long time, one of my most valued CDs. Not only because of its DTS, multi-channel format, but because of all things unique about Lyle Lovett's and his style. I recently came across an article which listed this CD, as well as many others, as a reference quality CD, so I bought it not really caring much about the artist and more about how my high-end home theater would sound - besides, I heard he was good haha and he did go out with Julia Roberts, though this should be grounds for dismissal in and of itself! At any rate, this truly is a reference quality disc in every sense of the word. It's DTS for one thing, so all of your speakers get some use, but the music on Joshua is just incredible. I kid you not, I listen to this CD every chance I get, and I don't know what sounds better: the CD because of my home theater, or my home theater because of this CD? Harmonies, choir, jazz, slide-guitar, saxophone and tons more are all there. I'm running a 7.1 configuration and I can't tell you how spirtual it is to hear bass singers (think James Earl Jones) going deep behind your head. On other tracks you have Lyle in the front and his gospel choir behind you. I think one of the most interesting things about this CD, and some of the songs, are just how real and dirty they get with imagery. Take for example, "Church." Never has a song about beans and cornbread been so grand. The entire album does take you back a bit. Though all songs on here are incredible, "You've been so Good Up to Now" is radio-ready; "Since the Last Time" is interesting because of Lovett's approach to death. He notes the 'joy' he gets from seeing everyone he 'hasn't seen since the last time somebody died.' Great tune. "North Dakota" and "Baltimore" are somber tunes that really display Lovett's articulation of the melancholy. Lovett jazzes it up with "All My Love is Gone," displaying a real laid-back character, whose brushes on the snare are a highlight throughout the song. So there you have it: half the reason you should own this CD- the other half is you actually hearing it.

Joshua Judges Ruth is less of the Large band and a bit more low keyed. This results in some great work, I Go To Memphis, Church and She Makes Me Feel Good. There is less humor and more realism resulting in perhaps his best work to date. The 5.1 surrond mix is fantastic and clean.
