The Shires Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine

The Shires Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine 

CD: ALLEN KARL - Songs From My Heart

ALLEN KARL
Songs From My Heart
 
This Century II record release is so new, I don't even have the names of the songs Allen Karl has recorded.  I also suspect this is a project that is on line for immediate release, however the 'finals' are not entirely done yet.  I was impressed that Allen would forward this project to me, unfinished.  Yet, I know he respects my opinion on recorded music, especially music called 'country music.'  He's been a regular attendee at our festival in LeMars, Iowa, the full week before Labor Day, now in its 41st year.  Number one, Allen Karl is a handsome man, and number two he's a number one vocalist.  Originally from Maryland, this part Native American, is pure and simple a remarkable 'true' country artist.  There are a number of songs on this release I really like.  "I Get So Lonesome" is a remarkably well written song, and fits Allen's voice to a tee.  I could almost 'guess' at the names of some of the songs on this album, "Nobody Wins" is I'm sure the first track, and then there's "Saturday Night" that really takes a step back in time with all the elements that made that kind of 'dancing' country music so remarkable.  Good musicians throughout, even a harmonica player that sounds an awful lot like the harmonica player on Donna Cunningham's exquisite CD.  This couple work a lot together, and both have attended our festival in LeMars repeatedly.  They each have a very distinctive voice, and when they sing together it's a remarkable experience.  This CD has many of the ingredients that Allen has in his previous works.  All of them good.  "Good" brings me to another song I think I can provide a name for "The Good Old Days Are Gone."  It's a remarkable story song about what we have today compared to what we had in the past.  Everybody has their own 'remembrances' of the past, mine is especially locked in elements that made country music so popular with rural America.  Much of that appears on this CD of Allen Karls.  After a rousing rendition of the good old days, a song so sincere and so remarkable well done with a sincere voice comes our way. This is a perfect place for it, because of it's love and romance and sincere vocalization.  This CD is off to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their listen.  It's not too late to apply for "CD of the Year" status, the only thing they will be missing is the names of the songs.  I think they can live with that.  Look out Europe, here comes another great album by Allen Karl.

Donna Cunningham is one of those monstrously good country singers that never took the road that contemporary country music has taken, actually a kind of road of near self destruction for real country music.  Rather, Donna focuses her direction on doing some incredibly good 'real' country music songs that tell a story.  Not over produced, and most important of all, sincere.  Her voice is remarkably much better than the studio-perfected voices of some of today's so called 'country' artists.  Personally I'd much rather hear a vocalist sing from her 'gut' than listen to someone who is only para-phrasing something that has already been done before them, done so much better.  That's kind of Donna Cunningham's objective, to NOT sound like someone else, putting it simply just being one's own self.  That was the secret of all the great female country artists of the past, and unfortunately not recognizable in today's USA 'chart' female artists.  The first song on this CD is a nice recognizable "Gone For Good" and it's easy to see why it wound up as track number one.  Donna's voice is perfect for this song, which is a nice country blues interpretation with an incredible harmonica player floating in the background.  What a treat!  Recorded at various locations, none of them Nashville, probably accounts for the individuality of this project, which is missing in most Nashville productions these days.  I'm sure there are a number of artists that pay tons of money to get a 'hit' recorded in Nashville.  That doesn't necessarily mean it's going to happen.  If I were a gambler, I'd put some money on this filly, Donna Cunningham, who is way ahead of the so called other runners.  A thoroughbred just can't be beaten, so I'm thinking my money is safe on this bet.  Donna records for Century II Records, who rather than spend tons of money on 'maybe's in the charts of America, has instead given her music over to Europe, especially in places like England, Ireland, Scotland, Holland, Belgium, France, and all those other countries that still have a deep appreciation for what country music should really sound like.  At these locations, she is a chart topper everywhere a chart appears in Europe.  What does this say about America?  Simple isn't it, all you have to do is think about it a little bit, you'll be able to figure the answer out yourself quite easily.  This entire CD is just plumb full of incredibly well produced songs, with the focus on a voice that can treat each song with respect and talent.  The harmonica appears every once in awhile, and it's a perfect 'effect' behind Donna's perfect voice.  Off to the Rural Roots Music Commission this lovely CD goes, still time for this year's award nominations.
