This brand new CD of 13 tunes by this young and very talented vocalist, Leddy Bragg, is a follow-up to her very successful initial CD. It is produced by Justin Trevino, who also plays acoustic guitar, and features a myriad of top Texas musicians. These musicians include steel guitarist Jim Loessberg, who is also the album drummer. The lead guitarist is Charlie Walton and Hank Singer plays fiddle. Jake Hooker plays bass and Randy Reinhard is on the piano. Justin is also a background vocalist along with Deena' Anderegg.
The album is comprised of mostly Texas Dance Hall and country classics. It opens in the country music mood of the late Webb Pierce with his 1950's classic country hit There Stands the Glass. There are also many other memories borrowed from country music. There is Carl Belew's 1965 classic, Crystal Chandeliers, A Boy Like You, Buck Owens' hit and composition, Act Naturally and the album closer with Leddy and her piano in the spotlight on the Floyd Cramer composition and hit, Last Date. The Texas dance hall gems include Bill Anderson and Faron Young's Face to the Wall; A-11 from the Hank Cochran pen and from the great Ray Price; The 24th Hour, Texas is Calling Me Home and Invitation to the Blues. Other Texas dance hall gems that are included are Yes Ma'am, Before the Next Teardrop Falls from Freddy Fender and the Faron Young hit and composition (along with Billy Deaton,) Wine Me Up.
