CD Reviews

Another winner, just waiting to happen.....
J. Bilby | Kingston, New Hampshire United States | 11/29/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Just like I waited all those years (during the 70's) for one of
my favorites Bonnie Raitt to finally get the right song to click with the masses, I to waited patiently for Wendy Maharry.
Although she only was able to put out two collections 1990
and this late 1991 gem "FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH" I knew she had the
talent and skills to reach a much larger audience. With radio
formats finally given women singers the chance to shine, and
VH1 on their side and premiering endless videos, late 1991
should have been Wendy Maharry's time but to those of us who
stayed with her this was another treat to listen to. She is
just the best piano playing tunesmith, everything about this
collection only added from what she gave us on her promising, underrated debut in 1990.
Full, richer arrangments, all over the place music stylings
give these songs just what they need. Many favorites again
with her piano riding around chasing these misfit, sometimes hopeless suitors. Just give the song "Fountain of Youth" a listen,(If you love the singer and songwriter Karla Bonoff, I'd compare the two for their gift
of conveying such emotion in their voices and both play piano
beautifully and write great emotional songs that set them
apart. these songs would have been great live on stage. "Money" wow another song with a wrecking ball kick to it, awesome sax and piano! SO MUCH great stuff from such an underrated
talent, hopefully 2003-2004 will see Wendy Maharry emerge again
with some great adult tunes! Check out
the new "RELEASE" just released in Europe with 2 new songs
and it should finally be properly released in the states soon."
