Guitar Techniques - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

We don’t get a lot of soul mu­sic in the mag as much of what is re­leased to­day is not par­tic­u­larly guitar inspired. But there’s al­ways an ex­cep­tion and this is it. It’s been 14 years since their ini­tial epony­mous al­bum as all five mem­bers of the band have been busy on other projects, but the time seemed right for this re­lease for two years on the trot and she has been nom­i­nated yet again. On a lis­ten to this de­but al­bum it’s clear to see why; it’s ev­ery bit as good in per­for­mance and pro­duc­tion as any­thing from Amer­ica. Great voice, ex­cel­lent songs and top-notch guitar play­ing from Frank Mizen, Steve Place and Ed­die Allen (who co-pro­duced the al­bum). We par­tic­u­larly like the dual guitar work on Ghost In My Ra­dio, the tenor guitar on Queen Of The Night and the pedal steel on Once In A While. It’s ex­em­plary coun­try rock through­out. Nancy is al­ways busy and puts a lot of ef­fort into her stage shows so it’s well worth go­ing to see her play live. If you like your rock with a coun­try flavour make sure you check her out. You won’t be dis­ap­pointed.
