Thread Name: New CD: 'Paris' by Sharyn Dimmick
Subject: Review: Sharyn Dimmick-PARIS
This CD presents a really nice balance of songs from North America, old and new,wellknown and otherwise,sacred and secular,but the real standouts are Sharyns own songs-Morning Shanty, Wallflower Waltz,and the title track Paris.
This last is a real knockout with sadness,loss,melancholy and bitterness all packed into its seven minute duration.It could well become a cross-over hit in the nature of "The first time ever I saw your face"
The accompaniments, sparse and understated for the most part,fit beautifully the overall atmosphere of the CD, and are a welcome change from the recent trend to over-produce folk albums.
