VALERIE SMITH 'Patchwork Heart'

VALERIE SMITH 'Patchwork Heart'

  • $13.50


A most enjoyable album by Ms. Smith, who has an intriguing, strong, thoroughly country voice with loads of personality. The accompaniment is essentially Bluegrass with some country touches (some piano & percussion are not obtrusive for the most part). The tasteful backup includes work by Stuart Duncan, Jerry Douglas, Ronnie McCoury, Roland White & Gene Libbea among others, and the set is produced by Alan O’Bryant. The disc starts off with two super cuts, the title song and Gillian Welch’s fine RED CLAY HALO, and there’s plenty of interest throughout the album, with such songs as GREENER PASTURES, MY BABY’S GONE, THREE MEN ON A MOUNTAIN. A very strong album by a lady who definitely has a way with a song,we will look forward to hearing more from her. Recommended listening.
