If you like great honky-tonk music, you're gonna love this CD!  This is the third CD I've gotten by Mike and I think his music just gets better and better.  That's saying a lot since I really enjoy listening to the first two.  Mike has written some great songs here, from the fun, up-tempo songs to the tnder songs that ell of a lost love.  Two of my favorites are "Not Gettin Caught" - we all like to get away with something now and then - and "Family Reunion" which sounds like a lot more fun than the last family reunion I attended, but I think I recognize a few of the characters.  I recommend this CD to everyone who likes good country music.  Make sure you have your dancing shoes ready when you play this CD because you'll want to - I love this CD!!

First time I heard 'That Used To Be Me', I walked around humming it for the rest of the day.  This is a CD that evokes visuals of sawdust floors and couples in boots two-stepping around the room to steel guitars and fiddles.  Always a good thought in my book - I love this CD!

Mike Clifford has followed up his last CD with this new one - the first track is the title track and is a perfect start to this classic country style offering.  Joining Clifford on vocals is Texan Pauline Reese.  Reese's vocals mingle perfectly with Clifford's on "My Heart's Got A Mind Of It's Own".  Reese also collaborates on "It's All Texas Music To Me".  Her strong, rich voice adds depth to the songs, without losing Mike in the mix.  "It's All Texas To Me" is a great retrospective of today's music industry.  The lyrics demonstrate the frustration by today's artists, having to be labeled by the industry, versus just letting music be music.  Overall, an enjoyable listening experience from Mike Clifford, with music that will translate well from the CD straight to the live performance.

After listening to MC's new CD I thought to myself - wow, what a great CD to dance to!  From slow-dancing to line-dancing, he covers it all.  It is solid old-school country album that makes you want to get on the floor and dance, dance, dance.  If this is a dance hall concept album, as the press-release claims, it sure works for me!

MC's new CD is his best album in my opinion.  From "Not Getting Caught" (which is my favorite) to the title track, this whole album is just great.  Not a song on it I don't like.  A must-have CD for your music collection - you should order one today!

The HGAB is TX honky-tonk music at it's best!  Songs range from Rockin to Ballads that will have you either craving a sawdust covered dancefloor or getting emotionally involved in a well-told story.  (I get a little misty every time I hear "That Used To Be Me") Mike's unique voice, the awesome instrumentation and impressive lyrics make this CD a major accomplishment for an as yet unsigned artist!  The addition of Pauline Reese singing backup on several songs as well as two duets was a very nice touch as they blend so naturally.

I've listened to the songs on this CD and I have to say I love them all!  My favorite for 2-steppin' would have to be the opening title track, although my favorite of all for listening or dancing is My Heart's Got A Mind of It's Own.  Awesome!!  Next favorite is Not Getting Caught and I see it as a great line dance song or 2-step, or Houston shuffle!  I love the voice and the music.  Makes me really want to get out there and dance.  It is a great CD and I didn't find any songs I didn't like.  ANd this isn't part of the review...but had to mention Mike has cute dimples!
