AllMusic Review by

The wickedly irreverent songs of Kinky Friedman are given the all-star treatment on the wonderful Pearls in the Snow, a tribute that with any luck will propel the Kinkster to the wider following his music has always deserved. Outside of fascinating performances from the likes of Willie Nelson ("Ride 'Em, Jewboy"), Lyle Lovett ("Sold American") and Tom Waits ("Highway Cafe"), the collection also includes a reunion of Friedman's band the Texas Jewboys, making it even more of a must-have for fans.
