0912. Nanci Griffith
The Last Of The True Believers
Folk-country singer/songwriter Nanci Griffith's fourth album doesn't catch my ear, and I don't know really. I start to think about Lucinda Williams' Car Wheels On A Gravel Road.
Not that the musical backdrop's similar (this is more enjoyable country than Williams' attempt to rock it), but maybe just that it feels sort of pointless.
I can't actually say why you should listen to it, so I hope there's more motivation than just delivering a hit song (Love At The Five & Dime) for another singer (Kathy Mattea got into the country top five with her cover in the same year as Griffith released the original).
I think I'll have to return to this album when the list is done to see if it's really as non-stick as it feels now.
