It’ll make you fly Sink you like a stone, It’ll leave you high Or leave you all alone.You’ll believe her word No matter what you’ve heard Anybody say about it There’s no life for you without it now Sonny Throckmorton and Mark Sherrill wrote the gentle, pretty ‘Butterfly’.
The album’s lead single “He’ll Take Care of You”, a duet with Vince Gill, was released last August, but failed to make any impact on the charts.
It is one of he album’s best tracks, along with the title track (a beautiful ballad), the funky “Soul Talk” and a very nice remake of Charley Pride’s “Power of Love”.
Although recycling of material usually annoys me, I didn’t find it objectionable in this case since the album consists of a generous 13 tracks.
The newest Willie Nelson album finds Willie treading familiar ground, recording eighteen duets with various female partners.
Produced by Mark Carman, it is a collection of inspirational songs.
Although it is being labeled a gospel album in press releases, most of the songs are not overtly religious, but all of them deliver a positive message.
In addition to the new material, contains two newly recorded versions of songs from Brown’s back catalog.
Sonya Isaacs joins Brown on “Which Way To Pray”, about a victim of sexual abuse and domestic violence, and Jimmy Fortune accompanies him on one of his very best songs “Wine Into Water”.
Presumably the project was inspired by his own battles with alcoholism. Graham Brown album, Forever Changed is heavily influenced by soul and R&B, along with a healthy dose of mainstream pop.
It isn’t terribly country, although a number of Nashville’s finest, including Vince Gill, Sonya Isaacs, former Statler Brother Jimmy Fortune, and the Oak Ridge Boys, appear as guest artists.
‘Your Memory Has A Mind Of Its Own’ is a lovely, very traditional country tune about battling with heartbreak.
