Synopsis

Amazon.com
In the new old-school country vein of Iris DeMent and Gillian Welch, with a touch of Nanci Griffith's soft twangy Texas phrasing, Stacey Earle has made an acoustic record of stunning simplicity and everyday grace. Most striking alongside the elegant arrangements is Earle's finely honed, though never flaunted, vocal prowess. "Silly You" is a stellar example of her expressive, wending warble, remarkably akin to Patty Griffin. Simple Gearle oozes sweet old-fashioned charm--from the vinyl-LP crackles at the beginning, middle, and end to her recognition of family (Earle's band is called the Jewels in honor of one granny, the disc is dedicated to the other). And big brother Steve even lends harmony vocals to the lovely "Losers Weep." --Paige La Grone

CD Reviews

Wow
Jeanie Pumphrey | 02/06/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I read an article about Nashville outsiders. Stacey Earle was listed among others (Steve Earle topped the list, of course). I figured if she were a tenth as good as Steve, she'd be worth listening to. It turned out she was a pretty major talent in her own right. The album is among my family's favorites. I haven't tired of listening to it yet, and I listen to it often. It's sad that someone as good as she is isn't a best selling recording artist, instead of a "special order"."
She's awesome

"The voice, the music, the lyrics, the performance. It's incredible that she is not more well known. There are no false steps in this album. It becomes more beautiful with each playing. Such incredible musicians as well."
Perfect

"How could this CD be better? It couldn't. Feed your soul and be amazed at how simplicity can carry so much emotional weight."
