Apart from some added sugar on the ballads, the rock rhythms of "Here's to the Girls," and the crisp Everlys
-esque pop of "Stay Love," Here's Faron Young
is a straightforward honky tonk record Young
could have released back on Capitol in the '50s, right down to how Faron
is in strong, assured voice. The collection of songs is quite strong, too, highlighted by the singles "I Just Came to Get My Baby" and "She Went a Little Bit Farther," both classic Texas 2-steps, as is "If You Ever Walk My Way Again," but he also has one of the earliest versions of "Before the Next Teardrop Falls," and a good drinking anthem in "Glass of Smile," helping make this into a solid LP.
