CLAIRE LYNCH 'Whatcha Gonna Do'

Add To Wishlist

This, the 7th album that Claire Lynch has recorded for Rounder, is the most contemporary thing that she has yet done. Though it's all acoustic, it's quite a ways from pure Bluegrass in arrangements and concept. Ms. Lynch is known as much for her songwriting as for her lovely voice, but on this disc there are just 4 songs that bear her name as writer or co-writer, including the nice HIGHWAY and WOODS OF SIPSEY. Though she seems quite enthused with the other songs she has chosen, I personally would like to have heard more of her own material. But the album can be called a success if just for two songs --MY FLORIDA SUNSHINE, a Bill Monroe song which Claire handles beautifully and which has been nominated for IBMA "Song of the Year", and BARBED WIRE BOYS. The latter is a real gem of a song and worth getting the album for --why this was not among the nominees for "Song of the Year" is a mystery to me.
