CD Reviews

Somebody's knocking ? maybe a rich man
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 04/20/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Terri is a blind singer-pianist with a soulful voice and for that reason is sometimes thought of as a female Ray Charles, but while Ray recorded some outstanding country music, his roots were elsewhere. Perhaps Ronnie Milsap would be a more accurate basis for comparison. As Ronnie and Ray were both brilliant, either comparison is a great compliment. Terri's roots were in country and during her all-too-brief career, that's what she recorded, albeit with other influences.Somebody's knocking, Terri's debut single, was a major hit in the American country and pop charts. That song took Terri from obscurity to stardom but she never had anything like that level of success again. Terri had other country hits, notably Rich man and Some days it rains all night long. This collection also includes Terri's distinctive covers of I wanna be around (Johnny Mercer) and Tell Mama (Etta James). Terri was a songwriter too although on this set, the only song she wrote was Go somewhere and hide.This collection is a little short at ten tracks but Terri only recorded four country albums (she later recorded two Christian albums) so this is sufficient to include all the essentials."
The more you listen the better it gets!!

"I first heard Terri, sometime in the 80's, when the radio played her"Somebody's Knockin'"and have loved her voice, style and piano playing ever since. Finally got around to buying the L/P, (which I've since worn out),and discovered the BEST rendition EVER of "I wanna be around". (And yes, I'm including Tony Bennet's version, too.) Had a chance to buy the "Best of" cd a few weeks ago and, somehow, overlooked doing it. Now I'm suffering for that grievous error. If it ever comes back, believe me, I'll buy TWO!!"
