James definitely got his talent from his dad, Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms Of Endearment). I discovered this album in 1989, when it first came out. The title song got quite a bit of airplay on the San Antonio station I listened to, so I thought the whole thing might be as good. I bought the tape, as it wasn't available in C.D. format at that time. I was NOT disappointed! The music is good, songs are well-written, all about things pretty much everyone can relate to. Real life...I give it a definite "thumbs up" all the way. It is timeless. I especially like "Talkin' At The Texaco." You almost need to be from Texas to understand a lot of these songs, especially if you're from or lived in a small town. Highly recommended!
