ALECIA NUGENT 'A Little Girl...A Big Four-Lane' ROU-0566-CD

  • $13.50


For the follow-up to her wonderful first album (independently produced, but currently available as ROUNDER-0518, $ 13.50), Ms. Nugent has wisely chosen to retain the services of Carl Jackson as producer. He again has done a masterful job of selecting and arranging material that brings out the best in Ms. Nugent’s singing. The Louisiana born lady has an achingly expressive voice that combines taste, subtlety and power in a manner that is unique in Bluegrass. Though her voice could easily be at home in other genres of music, the contemporary Bluegrass format that Jackson has chosen seems totally appropriate, and Bluegrass fans should be thankful for that. The backing is beautifully handled at all times by such musicians as Adam Steffey (mandolin), Rob Ickes (dobro) Jimmy Van Cleve (fiddle), and Jackson himself. Along with Nugent’s voice, the excellent backing, and Jackson’s touch, the 4th element in making this album truly superb is the wonderful choice of songs. Most are poignant, emotion packed numbers that seem perfectly suited to Ms. Nugent’s style: she wrings every ounce of soul out of each song. Especially effective are GOD KNOWS WHAT, A DOZEN WHITE ROSES, WHERE HIS WHEELS LEFT THE ROAD, LETTER FROM HOME, IT WON’T BE ME, and I CRIED ALL THE WAY TO KENTUCKY, but everything is well done. A beautiful & exceptional record that we RECOMMEND HIGHLY!
