Carolina Story – Chapter Two (Album Review)

Strong country duets from Nashville husband and wife

The empathy shared by great duet singers can take your breath away.

The Farewell Drifters - Tomorrow Forever (Album Review)

Superb melding of acoustic roots, folk-rock and pop

"I agree with your assessment...and Tommy was an original.  I just wish the Spampinato Brothers would get out more and venture farther from Cape Cod.  They play some fine music!"
