Angela Strehli is one of those most responsible for making Austin a roots music mecca in the '70s and '80s (she was a force behind both Antone's, the club and the label). Though she's been a San Francisco Bay Area resident for the last few years, Blonde & Blue, finds her back in Austin working with a faithful cast of Lone Star regulars. Actually, remakes of soul staples "Never Like This Before" and "Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um" were cut with different lineups; the latter, which features soul singer Don Covey and guitarist Steve Cropper, is a highlight. Not too surprisingly, Strehli proves again that she's a surefooted and sympathetic interpreter of classic blues and soul, plus she tosses in four originals. Stellar. --Steve Stolder

"Angela Strehli has style and conviction--she reminds me of a Blues version of Anita O'Day. I bought this CD based on hearing "Two Bit Texas Town" (Angela's homage to first hearing the blues on late night radio when she was a teenager), and I soon discovered that the ENTIRE CD is INSPIRED and DELIVERS. It's not derivative; it's her own interpretation--and she's an original. I've never seen Angela Strehli live, but if I do, I hope she ends the set with GOTTA FIND ME A LOVER. This is a tune calculated to bring down the house. The bass & drums are some kind of driving force! In a nutshell, check out this CD. You will discover a real hidden talent in Angela Strehli."
