Live in Texas: Collin Raye at Billy Bob's

The album simply captures Raye doing a highly professional, high-energy set of his hits. At first it's a little too high-energy, as he really pushes "My Kind of Girl" too hard to get the set off to an energetic start, but soon the music reaches an amiable equilibrium, balancing skillfully between sentimental ballads and friendly honky tonkers. While there's nothing surprising -- Raye isn't suddenly revealed as a hardcore country purist -- it's a smooth and satisfying listen, a good first live effort, and a record that's sure to please longtime fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
