Life after Highway 101

"After Paulette left Highway 101 the first time, neither the group nor Paulette had much success, although the group have been able to sustain a career at a more modest level. Between Paulette's first departure from the group and their reunion, she released two solo albums, one of which was a Christmas album that I've already reviewed.While nobody can deny that Paulette and Highway 101 were greater together than apart, I also enjoy their later music. I liked the original group for two reasons - Paulette's distinctive vocals and the men's exceptional musicianship. If your interest in Highway 101 primarily relates to the musicianship, you may be disappointed in this. Not that there's anything wrong with the musicians here - after all, they are top session musicians - but they lack the excitement of the original group.So the songs are similar in some ways to those that Paulette (who co-wrote seven of the ten here) recorded with Highway 101, but the up-tempo songs don't rock as hard, although they are still enjoyable.If you already have some of those earlier albums and you love them partly because of Paulette's voice, you will probably enjoy this. If you enjoy those earlier albums because of the rocking music, you might be best to avoid this. To my ears, Paulette has one of the most distinctive voices in the history of country music - and that's enough for me."
Leaving Highway 101 was a big mistake!

"Paulette Carlson was the former front woman of the country group, Highway 101. This solo album, released back in 1991, was a huge disappointment for me. Some of the songs, "I'll Start With You" are okay. But most of the songs were too boring. Ms. Carlson never should've embarked on a solo career, because both have suffered from the parting. Highway 101 has never regained their former top ten glory with succeeding lead vocalists, and as for Ms. Carlson, where is she now?"
