As I AM
This voice will sooth any one's soul-just like that.
Recorded at Winterwood Recording Studios in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, this album of Catherine Reed's has a most interesting song selection, covers of country, soul, and rock 'n' roll hits done in a decidedly folk fashion, quite well done at that. This is Reed's third album but only the second I have heard and I liked the other one so much that it was with excitement and anticipation that I opened this one and slung it into the machine. I was not disappointed. She covers some of my favorite songs by some of my favorite songwriters - it was a real treat. It's just her and her guitar, or her piano, calm and graceful, giving new meaning to a comprehensive collection of old songs. She shares production credits with Eric Schabacker, who did the mix and master. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or write her at P. O. Box 72 in Beaver (72613) and access the studio's web page at www.winterwoodstudios.com. The liner notes list nineteen tracks, but there is a bonus twentieth ("Women Be Wise") to make for over an hour's worth of really good musical entertainment. -Doug Treadway (Nightflying Magazine)
