About Gene Watson's 'In Other Words'...

Album Sleeve Notes
'Who is Gene Watson?
Here are a few facts: lives in Houston, Texas; worked on automobiles for ten years as a mechanic and body man; does not like for fans to kiss him (it embarrasses him); has a strange hobby - likes to grow ivy in pots; married to Miss Mattie; went to Central high in the town of Sumner, Texas; loves bologna, fans bring him bologna, eats raw bologna with mayonnaise and fried bologna with mustard.

Gene Watson is no stranger to adversity.  He was born crippled, but his feet are normal today, a condition he attributes to his mother's hours of therapy and prayer.

He has been making hit records since the summer of 1975 when his first record, 'Love in the Hot Afternoon', went to No.3 in the nation.

Since that time, there have been many hits, such as 'Paper Rosie', 'Cowboys Don't Get Lucky All The Time', 'Should I Come Home (or should I go crazy)' and his signature song, 'Farewell Party'.

In this new album there are many wonderful songs that touch all aspects of a man's life from growing up to growing old.  My favourite song is 'Class Reunion'.  It has a wonderful hook or surprise ending and, if you've ever been to high school, I think you will identify with this song.

I am happy to say that Gene Watson has been my friend since the mid-70s when I hosted the old television show 'Pop Goes the Country'.  Today I am always delighted when we are able to book him on 'Nashville Now'.

Who is Gene Watson?  If you will listen to this album I think you will find, as I have, that he is one hell of a country singer'.
Ralph Emery

Gene Watson's 'In Other Words' (Broadland International Records / Mercury Records Canada, 1992) was produced by Gary Buck (Thursday 21 March 1940 - Tuesday 14 October 2003).

Recording Engineer: Les Ladd
Studio: Reflections, Nashville, Tennessee
Mastering: Denny Purcell, Georgetown Masters
Recording Dates: December 1991 - February 1992

Overview



'Gene Watson’s debut album for Warner Bros. Records, 'Back In The Fire' (Warner Bros. Records, 1988), was released in the early part of 1988. The debut single from the album, 'Don't Waste it on the Blues', went all the way to No.5 - Gene Watson was back on the Billboard country music Top 10 in America after a three year absence.

Gene Watson’s revived career also introduced him to a new generation of country music fans'.

Two further singles off 'Back In The Fire' (Warner Bros. Records, 1988) charted on the Billboard country music singles chart; 'Back in the Fire' (Top 20, 1988) and ‘The Jukebox Played Along’ (Top 25, 1988), but subsequent releases on Warner Bros. Records failed to break the Billboard country music Top 40.



Gene Watson, however, felt that things were, at long last, going his way.  He had begun work on 'At Last' (Warner Bros. Records, 1991), his second album for Warner Bros. Records, when the relationship between himself and Lib Hatcher ran into some problems.  In the latter part of 1990, it was reported that they had both issued suits against one another over management fees.

The legal wrangle with Lib Hatcher lasted for about a year, during which time Gene Watson could not sign any management / booking deals with anyone else.  Warner Bros. Records became aware of the situation and, following the release of 'At Last' (Warner Bros. Records, 1991) in 1991, dropped Gene Watson from their roster.

The major label recording career of a country music legend had ended - something that the country music industry should never have allowed to happen & something that they should be thoroughly ashamed of.

Gene Watson then turned to veteran manager Jack McFadden (1927 - Tuesday 16 June 1998) in Nashville.  Jack approached a number of major record labels in Nashville, but none of them were willing to take a chance on an artist with a lawsuit hanging over his head.

However, an independent recording project was agreed with Canadian record producer and former recording artist Gary Buck (Thursday 21 March 1940 - Tuesday 14 October 2003).

There were several provisions within the contract, which meant that if no major label acquired the rights to the recording, Gary Buck could release it on Mercury / Polygram Records in Canada.

Gary Buck passed away in Didsbury, Alberta in Canada, on Tuesday 14 October 2003 - he was sixty-three years old.

Gene Watson's 'In Other Words' (Broadland International Records / Mercury Records Canada, 1992), which was recorded in Nashville in December 1991 and February 1992, initially gained a release in Canada only on Broadland International Records, Gary Buck’s own record label.

Gene Watson's 'In Other Words' (Broadland International Records / Mercury Records Canada, 1992) later gained a release, on Broadland International Records, in the United States in 1993, when a single from it, 'One & One & One' (written by Buddy Cannon and John Northrup), managed to make its way into the Billboard country music singles chart, stopping a little outside the Top 50'.
