["Are You Ready For The Country" is an] horrendously lame, almost Vegas-style album that's extremely disappointing after "Dreaming My Dreams," possibly the best country album of 1975…. But camp-followers will enjoy the awful, elephantine "MacArthur Park (Revisited)", a big clanger, like the album, in the career of this most uneven and frustrating artist.

"Albums: 'Are You Ready for the Country'," in Melody Maker (© IPC Business Press Ltd.), January 22, 1977, p. 23.
