Latest Album Reviews

Lisa Phenix “Homegrown” (Fools of the World Records 2005) Lisa's debut record is a mix of country, folk, jazz, blues and pop - a wide spectrum of all music here. Lisa's mining territory previously covered by the likes of Nancy Griffith and Bonnie Raitt. Country music is mixed in with some fine slower songs, especially the excellent 'Losin' Your Good Woman Blues' with some brilliant guitar work (no details of musicians available) on this copy. There's plenty here to enjoy and the tempo never drops - by track 6 Lisa takes on the blues 'Bad Blues' followed by some fine rockabilly pop on 'Little Mama' . Lisa is covering ground we have all visited before but the songs (lyrics & music) are good enough to allow the listener to forget that. AR 7outoften
