TOPIC OF THE DAY ~ MOCKINGBIRD (Album by Allison Moorer)
Allison Moorer is no stranger to the country scene, but MOCKINGBIRD is the first album I've picked up of hers. Mainly, I admit, for the cover songs (many of which I enjoyed the originals.) This is one impulse purchase I'm glad I made!
The tracks on this album are more than country - displaying a wide range of vocals and more than a little soul. Allison's voice is soothing, sultry, and mesmerizing... and now a new fav of mine.
"Mockingbird" (Allison's original) and "Both Sides Now" (a cover remake) are my choice selections, but the album in it's entirity makes for a great listen.
"Ring of Fire" (a cover remake) takes a little getting used to if you are a Johnny Cash/June Carter fan (as I am)but with the powerful and refreshing vocals Allison lends to the song, you'll easily be won over.
I have Allison's back albums on order and I'm looking forward to her next release. This is country as it should be!
