CLIFF PERRY AND LAUREL BLISS 'Spirit Of Love'
Back in 1994 we received a copy of this duoÕs first record, simply entitled ÒOld PalÓ, and it has since remained one of our all-time favorites (it is still available: TM-0707, $ 13.99). Perry & Bliss, who are from the state of Washington, sing and play in a warm, unpretentious manner, with Cliff playing guitar and Laurel the dobro. They have a real feeling for songs of the Carter Family, and include the following Carter songs on this attractively packaged disc: OH TAKE ME BACK, WHERE THE SILVERY COLORADO WENDS ITS WAY, YOUÕVE BEEN A FRIEND TO ME, TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME and the title song. Other fine songs here were learned from James & Martha Carson (THEREÕS AN OPEN DOOR WAITING FOR ME, the Delmore Brothers (SAND MT. BLUES), and Mel & Stan (the obscure but lovely WHISPERING NOW. This album will be a real treat for all those who love the old duet style.
