Janie Frickie

Frickie knows how to walk through a performance without doing herself much damage. But just when things are seeming awfully routine, she’ll turn up something like the delicate, pensive version of the Willie Nelson masterpiece The Healing Hands of Time, which graces this album. That track and a swingy version of the old Bob Wills standby Sugar Moon—with invigorating backing from a studio band that includes such usual suspects as Steve Gibson, Johnny Gimble and Mark O’Connor—represent most of what stands between this record and a stifled yawn at its otherwise uninspired 27 minutes of country music.
