"Dawn is yet another singer that could have - should have - been a major country star but wasn't. This is a very strong collection of songs, sung by a lady with a great voice, backed by Nashville's finest musicians. Although this album has a contemporary edge, I think it may have been too traditional for country radio.There are three covers here, these being Half as much (Hank Williams), Good goodbye (Highway 101 - from their debut album) and Odds and ends (Lynn Anderson - from her album What she does best). The remainder may all be originals, though He's in Dallas was also recorded by Reba McEntire and appeared on her album, For my broken heart. I suspect that both of them got the song at the same time, though I have no definite knowledge. If so, Dawn and Reba both thought they were recording the original version. Shelby Lynne later covered Tell me I'm crazy for her album, Temptation. Another song that a few of you might recognize is my favorite song here, Old fashioned broken heart, which was subsequently recorded by Lisa Stewart, another brilliant singer that faded back into the obscurity from whence she came.Dawn proved with this album that she could sing ballads and up-tempo songs. Note that this album includes ten songs - the listing omits the excellent Could be the Mississippi. Dawn recorded just one more album after this, though she also recorded a duet with Tracy Byrd (Out of control raging fire) that can be found on one of his albums.If you are a traditional country fan and you get the chance to buy this album, don't pass it by."
