James Talley - Tryin' Like The Devil (1976)

James Talley is an American singer-songwriter.

James Talley had finally seen his debut album recorded and released on Capitol Records in 1975. It wasn't much of a seller, but was a hit with the critics. Capitol gave the go-ahead for a follow-up, which saw release the next year. Tryin' Like The Devil was a continuation and development of the understated country-folk sound of its predecessor, showcasing another fantastic collection of distinctive songs, this time with a lyrical focus on hard times, poverty and working life. Among the new songs were a few real highlights, some of his very best songs. Musical guests included Western Swing fiddler Johnny Gimble and bluegrass dobro player Josh Graves.
