TINA ADAIR 'Just You Wait & See'
What could have been a most impressive debut album has been held back by a mediocre selection of songs. Ms. Adair has a fine voice and is obviously at home in a Bluegrass setting, and the backing here is impeccable, featuring the likes of Jerry Douglas on dobro, Bryan Sutton on guitar, Aubrey Haynie on fiddle, with Alan O’Bryant and Keith Little supplying harmony vocals. The listener wants to get excited, but there are just too few really interesting songs, and too much slow material—some of which dies a slow & painful death even before the first chorus is reached. There have to be plenty of songs that would set off this artist’s very pleasing voice—hopefully her next record will make people sit up and take notice. MIDST OF THE MORNING RAIN, JUST ME, PRAY WITH MAMA & DADDY, CRAZY LOVE, HOW MANY ROADS, SOME PEOPLE’S LIVES, ARROW, WHEN MY TIME COMES TO GO etc.
