GRETCHEN PETERS —HELLO CRUEL WORLD (Proper Records)

http://www.propermusic.com

What a wonderful surprise it was to hear fellow singer-songwriter, recording act Rodney Crowell join her on the song, ‘Dark Angel’. Like with a few more tracks it was love at first hearing. So impressive was the partnership a few more tracks would not have been out of place. Maybe, they will consider doing a duet album.…

REBBECA LOEBE —MYSTERY PRIZE (Me And My Records)

http://www.rebeccaloebe.com 

What impressed me most about, Atlanta, Georgia-based Rebecca Loebe is how much thought she puts into her music. As a result she gets her songs over to the listener. Good songs they are too! Loebe was born and first raised in Arlington, Virginia before her parents moved to Atlanta and at 17 she moved up to Boston. It is where she attended Berklee College Of Music and go on to…

RICK NELSON —STAY YOUNG THE EPIC RECORDINGS (Floating World)

http://www.fwrecords.co.uk 

Pulled from his late 1970s albums with Epic after he had released himself from a twenty-year deal with MCA. Yes, twenty years! That was some record deal and with his life in turmoil, he was broke before moving labels plus he was in constant quarrels with his wife and conflict with his producers once he had moved to Epic. Not…

MERLE HAGGARD —BIG CITY / GOING WHERE THE LONELY GO (BGO)

www.bgo-records.com

Here we have yet another splendid 2-for-1 album from BGO. Merle Haggard has to be in the running as the greatest country music act of all-time, and not just the fifty years. Yes, it is almost that long, because he first charted in December 1963. Though Merle no longer troubling the charts he is still making first-class albums. As in his…
