CD Reviews

A very special CD

"Listening to this CD is so bittersweet. Knowing that Amie never had a chance to see it released or have a hand in choosing exactly which songs would be on it makes you treasure what she left behind even more. I'm only hoping that the other songs that didn't get put on this CD will someday find their way on a third Amie Comeaux album. She deserves it and so do we for her voice is truly that of one very special angel. I also very highly recommend her first album Moving Out. Its become one of my favorite CD's. Rest in Peace Amie."
Wonderful, a shining star lost too soon

"I have both of Amie's CD. The first is very good. A Very Special Angel is fantastic. It really showed how much Amie had grown as a singer. Her voice was much stronger. The songs are beautiful. "Anywhere With You" and "A Single Crimson Rose" give me goose bumps. I would recommend this CD to everyone."
Talented country singer who might have been a star

"It appears that Amie (born December 4, 1976) had all the qualities required to make it big in country music. We will never know whether she would have done because she died soon after her twenty-first birthday while this album was nearing completion. Amie hoped that this, her second album, would be good enough to impress the major labels in Nashville sufficiently for her to secure a recording contract with one of them. That wouldn't have guaranteed success (as many others have found out) but it would have given her a chance.

On this album, Amie sings ten songs that showcase her ability to sing a variety of songs, both ballads and up-tempo. The style is contemporary country but should appeal to some traditional country fans too, as the instruments include steel guitar, twelve string, fiddle and harmonica. Despite Amie's Louisiana heritage, the album does not show any Cajun influences.

Jim Beauhall, the producer, co-wrote all the songs except Twelve steps down (a great song about a man who supposedly lives twelve steps down from Amie) and Paper mill road (a song about past memories). Amie co-wrote two of the songs, these being When you smile at me (a brilliant song that opens the album) and The other woman, a feisty song in which she makes her opinion very clear to the other woman, who now faces the same problem with the philandering man.

Amie was surely very pleased with the ten songs that she had recorded by December 21, 1997. On that ill-fated day, she was driving along a road, hit a patch of ice and skidded to her death. As a tribute to Amie, one more song was added to the album and became its title track. Among the five singers who sang on this track, four are otherwise unknown to me but I recognize Lisa Stewart, who recorded one major label album (which I've reviewed) before returning to the obscurity from whence she came. It is a very moving song and I'm sure that all who knew Amie appreciate it, though I can imagine that there will be others who find it all too much. All the songs are great but my favorites among the others are A single crimson rose, Anywhere with you and This dream.

Because Amie was unable to promote the album, even local radio stations in Louisiana showed only limited interest in it, which is unfortunate. This album is one of the best country albums that you are likely to find on a small independent label."
