CD reviews for Steve Martin and Edie Brickell

So Familiar CD review - So Familiar
Much as the duo of Steve Martin and Edie Brickell are reaching toward each other on their second album's cover, their second pairing bridges musical spectrums. Unfortunately, not entirely successfully. Acoustic sounding - fresh, uncluttered, and lively - but distinctly pop oriented - less narrative-based than even their last recording "Love Has Come For You" - "So Familiar" expands their sound further afield. Less Americana, more polished, MOR fare. »»»
Love Has Come For You CD review - Love Has Come For You
No,no, not that Steve and Eydie, the husband and wife duo Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme who had a couple minor hits in the pre-rock era and after that were on every telethon or second-rate variety show in the '60s and '70s. The new and improved Steve and Edie features actor, comedian, novelist, playwright and all-around wild and crazy Renaissance guy Steve Martin. He's had a banjo in his act since the arrow-through-the-head days, but nobody knew until his recent work with the »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»

Nightfall CD review - Nightfall
Little Big Town gets billed as a country music vocal group, but "Nightfall" plays out more like a four-headed singer-songwriter effort. Many of these songs hearken back to some of the best '70s introspective songwriter efforts. »»»
