Subject: RE: Lyr Req: When The Roses Bloom In Dixieland
...Tsk..I guess you can't please everyone...*grin*...I'm afraid Laura Boosinger is not my cup of tea....she is obviously quite talented, but stylistically, it strikes me as if they taught Marilyn Monroe to play banjo REALLY well, but forgot voice lessons....that 'breathy' sound just doesn't move me...and she 'tweaks' the tune in funny ways...odd notes and rhythmic eccentricities. No, I'm not suggesting everyone should play and sing songs exactly alike, I just have the sense that she attended a couple of "make a song your own" workshops, and was inspired..*Big smile*.

Well, now that I've offended my good buddies here, I'll just slink off in the corner and listen to some Hedy West (or even Harry & Jeannie West!) to clear my head....
