Quotes & Highlights
- Four Stars: "Eat this for chutzpah. Nashville bagman Gill spreads 43 songs over four discs, each on a different genre--rock (80's Billy Joel, eek), countrypolitan (better), honky-tonk (betterer) and bluegrass (best). It's a mighty ambitious project, for which he's called in some favours, duetting with Gretchen, Emmylou, Phil Everly, Guy Clark and Diana Krall. Despite the sheer mass of material, quality remains high...really, credit the enterprise." --Time Out London
Vince Gill's latest album, These Days, is a four-disc collection of diverse styles and influeces, all blended with Gill's own trademark sound. There was no plan to record the forty-three original songs and gather them into an unprecedented offering of diverse, accomplished artistry. When Vince Gill went into the studio with some trusted musical colleagues back in September 2005, he intended to assemble another in a long line of first-rate albums, mixing a little hard-core country, maybe a bluegrass number or two, perhaps a sacred tune. But--thanks in part to the Beatles--things turned out differently.
Five weeks later, when Gill and his musical cohorts came up for air, he discovered they had cut thirty-one songs, which meant that he would have to cull two-thirds of his work to turn in a single album. This is where the Beatles come in. Working at Blackbird Studios, some paraphernalia on the wall caught Gill's eye and reminded him that the Beatles had released multiple albums in a single year. That set him to thinking. The songs he had recorded fell pretty neatly into distinct styles: traditional country songs, ballads, and some up-tempo, contemporary stuff. Why not release one album every three or four months, over the course of a year?
Each disc in this set explores a different musical mood, which encourages sustained listening in the same way that satellite radio's musically themed stations do. Each song on these discs has been carefully shaped and formed by Gill the songwriter, Gill the musician, Gill the singer, and Gill the producer (collaborating with engineer-producer Justin Niebank and musician-producer John Hobbs).
