It's hard to believe traditionalist Watson has been around for as long as he has -- his first big hit was 1975's "Love in the Hot Afternoon." On this new collection, the now 63-year-old proves he's still got it in spades. With the title cut, Watson shows he can still evoke the heartbreak of lost love and on "I Buried Our Love," he convincingly laments that he can't put an old flame behind him. Watson also puts his own spin on three classics, which is no small feat. "Don't You Ever Get Tired of Hurting Me" has been recorded by Ray Price and Ronnie Milsap; "Today I Started Loving You Again," on which Lee Ann Womack guests, was a 1975 hit for Sammi Smith; and "Together Again," on which Rhonda Vincent appears, was a No. 1 for both writer Buck Owens and later for Emmylou Harris. -- Ken Tucker
