Sweet Love Feelings: Jerry Reed

Rating: 80%

Jerry-Reed-Sweet-Love-Feelin-536230Riding the tide of Smokey Bandit, Jerry Reed released “Sweet Love Feelings” in 1978. This album is a mixture of classic Country music mixed with a dash of the Bayou and a touch of Disco. It also features the love song “(I Love You) What Can I Say.”

Musically, this album is good. It features Jerry’s classic guitar picking and chords.  There’s a good bit of lead guitar on this record. The song structures are blended to where the Country-Pop and traditional Country are still vibrantly heard. Jerry does pull from some of his Rockabilly styles and collides them with some of the more progressive styles. Jerry’s vocal work is still top notch.
