CD Reviews

Stealing Slow
David T. Steere, Jr. | Annapolis, MD United States | 10/16/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kate always reminds us of what the best southern music is really about. In this fusion of southern atmospherics and blues, she touches the heart as few can in shades of country, gospel, folk and pop.

UP IN WEST VIRGINIA
IN THE COLD COAL MINES
THEY GOT BLUES
MILES AND MILES OF BLUES
FROM BUFFALO TO BALTIMORE
TALK ABOUT HARD TIMES
THEY GOT BLUES
MILES AND MILES OF BLUES

This may be the best record in her distinguished discography. Kate's voice, sweet and thick as molasses, is as wonderful as ever and remains center stage with a cast of amazing musicians (including: Walt Aldridge-producer and guitars; Jim Hoke-accordion and harmonica, Larry Franklin-fiddle, Randy Kohrs-dobro, Neil Rosengarden-trumpet, Bill Huber-trombone, Ron de la Vega-cello) and a who's who of harmony singers (Maura O'Connell, Guy Clark, Verlon Thompson, Mac McAnally, and Cindy Walker). Although the blues permeate nearly every song (often in very original ways), Kate finds hope as well.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THERE'S MUSIC
TO EASE YOUR WORRIED MIND
WHEN YOU GOT BLUES
MILES AND MILES OF BLUES
AND THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A GUITAR
CRYING IN THE NIGHT
WHEN YOU GOT BLUES
MILES AND MILES OF BLUES

PEACE COMES STEALING SLOW
FALLS LIKE SILENT SNOW
SWINGS DOWN SWEET AND LOW
PEACE COMES STEALING SLOW"
At her finest !
K. Pope | Tulsa Ok | 01/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kate sings the blues and swings and tells stories like only she can.
The spiritual call of the Peace Comes Stealing Slow and Lord Help the Poor and Needy are timely and strong.
