"Ever hear a CD that just plain defies description? Sherri
& I got this one several weeks ago and ever since, I've been
trying to put into words what I think of
it. But it just won't come out....and I think I've figured out
why...the songs touch areas that us ol' bad-ass Southern Rockers
keep hidden deep inside. The music itself is excellent....a
combination of the traditional country instruments like banjo and
fiddle with slide guitars that would make Duane Allman proud. But
it's the quality of the songs that shines through. They touch on
everyday people dealing with everyday life. OK, but isn't that what
"country" music is supposed to do ? Maybe....but Eve
Selis is the
perfect counterpoint to the "Shania-Hill-Chick" thing thats
all over the genre these days. She has the true-grit sound of Bonnie
Bramlett or Bonnie Rait...are you sure she didnt change her name
? Guys...don't try to analize it....just listen."
This CD is life from a womans point of view, no doubt, but its
also way more than that ! Without doing a song by song review, let
me tell you about a couple of beauties. The first is Tear This
Old House Down...a relationship gone bad and the singers
realization that its time to rise from the ashes. This ones my
choice for radio play...I can just visualize the video, too ! Do
You Know Me is another favorite...the story of the forgotten
people of our society and their behind the scenes lives.
Bittersweet and sung with true, heartfelt emotion. I dont think Ive
ever felt the almost brutal honesty of life so strongly.
Selis is a
treasure. Thats the truth !
time....Skydog & Sherri signin off.
