Synopsis

Amazon.com
Lou Reid & Carolina is the quartet led by the former lead singer of the Seldom Scene. The sound is very similar to the highly melodic, folkish new-grass approach of the Scene, but the presence of soprano Gena Britt as a lead and harmony singer gives a much different feel to the harmonies. The emphasis is definitely on the rich blend of the vocals, not the quite-respectable-yet- understated picking. Ronnie Bowman, one of the hottest singers in bluegrass today, helps out his old friends by writing or co-writing three of the dozen songs, and adds low harmonies to one of them, "Feeling Like I Do," a broken-hearted ballad that features Britt at her best. Reid shows off his handsome tenor on Carl Jackson's lively road song, "Long Lonesome Highway." --Geoffrey Himes
