People Loving People-Garth Brooks (Pearl/RCA)

His return is good press for the Country biz as a whole, yes. He’s been away long enough for most of us to miss him. I’m sure the song is heart felt, but coming back to us with a “message” might not have been the best course to take. Kumbaya is fine with us all in principle, sure. But such songs are almost always lightly received. It’s a very good record for what it is, so maybe…. Naturally there’s no way we shouldn’t add it right away.
