Ray Price- Another Bridge To Burn

This was 80 cents.  I like Ray Price a lot. I was disappointed with this year’s Hank Williams movie, I Saw The Light’s portrayal of Price as well as the whole movie itself.  I mean I know Price was a bit green when he moved in with Williams but I felt the actor portraying him had no similar features at all.

Whilst abroad in Amsterdam last month, I stopped at the Moco Museum to see the Banksy/Warhol exhibition on display.  The museum is aptly located in Museumplein, right behind the Rijksmuseum and beside the Van Gogh Museum.  It is a small gallery but it was a very good exhibit.

Street artist Banksy was the main showcase.  They had samples of some of his better known street works such as the rats, the monkeys, the girl with the balloon, and other pieces.  The main piece of art was the painting Beanfield shown above.  They also had the Swat Van in an enclosed space outside of the museum.

The Warhol stuff was less interesting but that is just my taste.  They had a Soup Can as well as the Reigning  Queen series of portraits with the center point being the one of Netherlands own Queen Beatrix.

This record came out in 1966.  It was Price’s 10th and it went to #1 on the Country Charts. It has that Ray Price sound back with steel guitars and fiddles where previous efforts as well as modern country at the time had string sections.  Lot of real good songs.  The title track, “Don’t Believe Her”. and “Go Away” were among my favorites.

For a sample, I went with “Don’t Believe Her”.  The chorus is what hooked me.

Satisfactory Record
