It's Been an Allison Kind of Month......

Category: Music

Allison Moorer and Alison Krauss to be specific have been alternating in my transport for the last month or so. Audiogon member Rivercitylad steered me to this unknown artist (to me). Allison Moorer's CD "Alabama Song" (an HDCD disc for those who care) is country/pop in character, but A. Moorer has a beautiful non-soprano voice and she sings some beautiful ballads here. But the whole the CD is very well recorded, and I also really like the band's work. I have since also bought A. Moorer's only other CD, and it's excellent too.

Alison Krauss and Union Station Band was recommended to me by another A'gon member. I had stayed away from her music because I thought "well, it's just Blue Grass-- how good could it be?"-- my mistake. Her CD "Forget About It" is an excellent recording and has several beautiful ballads, but the whole CD is good, and of course The Union Station Band is an excellent Blue Grass band. I now have four of AKs CDs and a different perspective on Blue Grass.

I certainly can recommend these artists, their bands, the recordings, and the CDs. Cheers. Craig
Paul; I think I'll probably end up with all of AKs CDs before long too. Thanks Sarah, I'll look for the Allison Brown CD. I'm not a "mainstream" blurgrass fan, but really like good female vocals. The AK CD "Forget About It" is more country/pop than bluegrass-- but the Union Station Band is just so good.........Cheers. Craig
Thanks for the tip. I love good female vocals and have just ordered "Alabama Song." Wish more Agon threads would contain music recommendations. Joel
Ain,t nothing sweeter than Allison through a set
of Maggie,s .
Try some Lucinda Williams ,"Essence" or any of hers
and you can experience meltdown.
My first high end speakers were a pair of ALLISON AL 115 bookshelf units that I drove to their death!

Beside the distaff Al(l)isons there is always Gillian Welch.
OH, I'm sorry. I thought y'all was talking about Luther and Bernard Allison. My mistake . . . ^_^
