AllMusic Review by

Roy Drusky's duets with Priscilla Mitchell accounted for three of his hits in the mid-'60s, including the chart-topper "Yes, Mr. Peters." Together Again is the duo's second album together, and it is a mediocre effort that tellingly contains no hits. Tony Hatch's "My Love" (a full four years before Sonny James took it to number one on the country charts) and Cole Porter's "True Love" are given middle-of-the-road treatments, and their very presence shows that producer Jerry Kennedy was probably casting too wide a net. Even Buck Owens' "Together Again" is given a bland, uninspired arrangement. There is one Roy Drusky co-composition ("Alone With You") and Harlan Howard's "Above and Beyond" (another great song associated with Buck Owens), but Drusky and Mitchell's voices don't create an especially appealing blend. The two vocalists alternated lines on "Yes, Mr. Peters," so perhaps that approach would have yielded a superior product here. Drusky and Mitchell are talented artists, but Together Again is an entire album of filler.
