"For The Good Times" is mostly an album of covers of classic country tunes. Norah Jones and her band mates sound superb. They make these tunes sound new. "I Worship You" is the happiest song about a relationship gone bad. The title track is a reminder that life goes on even though two people are not in love any more. This song has a pretty tone to it. "Fist City" is an upbeat tune about a woman defending the man she loves. Norah Jones sounds feisty and spirited on this song. This song is simply groovy. "Jolene" is another classic gem about a woman trying to hold on to her man, while she is at the mercy of another woman. This song is very moving. I love the differences in the tone of these two songs.. "Tommy Rockwood" is the only original composition here. Band member Jim Campilolongo showcases his talents on the guitar here. The musical arrangements on this song are superb on this instrumental track. Band member Richard Jullian sings lead vocals on the track "Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves". This is a song about happens when a man mixes business with pleasure. Julian also covers the Johnny Cash classic Wide Open Road" This song is about a man who gives his wife permission to leave. He duets with Norah on the song "Lovesick Blues . This is the prettiest blues song I have ever heard.. "Remember Me" is a pretty song about a woman who has passed away. The bass playing by Lee Alexander gives this song a sentimental tone. "If You've Got The Money I've Got The Time"is an up tempo song. It is a humorous song that reminds me of my dating and social life. " Foul Owl On The Prowl" is the first song I have heard that describes the personality of an owl. This song has a sensual tone I love. The music on this album is excellent.
