Norman & Nancy Make Beautiful Music
Steve Vrana | Aurora, NE | 05/07/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The official title of this album is "The Norman and Nancy Blake Compact Disc." Originally released in 1986, this 64-minute CD consists of Nancy's 1986 album "Grand Junction" (tracks 4, 9, 12, 13, 15, 16 and 18) and Norman's 1985 album "Lighthouse on the Shore." Norman and Nancy are superb musicians on almost all instruments with strings--guitar, mandolin, mandola, fiddle, cello. There are only four vocals: "Hello Stranger," "Jordan Am a Hard Road To Travel," "If I Lose, I Don't Care" and "Wildwood Flower. Norman is a better picker than he is a singer, but their is a warmth and sincerity to his voice that serves well on these old-time country songs. Although there are a number of originals mixed in with the traditional songs on this collection, when you listen to it straight through they seem all of a piece. Timeless music. RECOMMENDED"
