Title - ‘Beyond Time’ (Audium Records)
Artist - Ray Benson
This CD is definitely a MUST have for all Asleep at the Wheel and Ray Benson fans. While the selections are definitely not what I'd expect from Asleep at the Wheel they are exactly what I'd expect from a Ray Benson solo CD. If you've been to AATW shows you know for sure that Ray is way more than western swing. Dolly Parton fans will definitely be interested in this album! It contains the song "Leave That Cowboy Alone" which Dolly & Ray Benson originally wrote for their TV-movie ‘Wild Texas Wind’. The track is a definite highlight of this album. Also standing out amongst the other tracks is Benson's cover of the Marty Robbins classic "El Paso." Fans of the traditional Asleep At The Wheel sound will be pleasantly surprised.
