CD Review: ALLYN ANDERSON - Planet Anderson

ALLYN ANDERSON
Planet Anderson
Solitary Life - The Planet Anderson - Candlelight - Jesus Our Savior - Distracted - Gift of Grace - Daddy's Delight - Damn That Bottle - Jesus Is Always There - Gift From Joe - Pillow by My Side - The Nativity - Get Behind Me Satan - Get Excited
 
Allyn Anderson is a kind of country folk singer songwriter.  This particular work is him and his acoustic guitar.  Allyn has a very gifted voice, easy to listen to and easy to understand.  He writes a lot here about his relationship with Jesus Christ, the savior of all of us who give our souls to him without regard or regret.  Allyn makes that point more than satisfactorily.  Belief is all it takes in a relationship with Christ, and Allyn makes that pointedly clear as well. His gentle voice tells us about Jesus.  All of the songs are originals by Allyn, one in particular I like is "The Planet Anderson" in which he reveals how he was brought up in the Lutheran church, how to be a good Christian, and make it well known what a Christian is.  Along with his very gifted voice, Allyn is a very accomplished acoustic guitarist.  Because our old-time music festival is acoustic and open to all kinds of musical genres, country, bluegrass, ragtime, even folk music, Allyn 'fits in' really well way.  He's always a very gracious participant, and helps us in many of our needs.  We especially appreciate his songs and music, much like we hear it on this CD.  According to his own liner notes, this CD project of 14 original songs is dedicated to his loving parents Mel and Lois Anderson, the Fulton Lutheran Church for giving him a strong faith foundation, his brother Gary, his sisters Sandy and Sharon for putting up with him, and his loving wife Eileen for all her support and being his number one fan, all of them from the planet Anderson.  I especially like Allyn's original songs about his relationship with Jesus.  We live in a very unusual time on planet earth.  There are so many strange things happening on our bigger planet, so much violence, harsh words, a loss of morals in America, demands from minorities that we've never had to deal with before, and certainly a harsh unhealthy atmosphere without Jesus.  Allyn brings all of this into focus, and it is a good spiritual lesson for all of us, especially those that are true Jesus fans and souls.  Allyn makes it all easier to understand, his words speak truthfully, the only way one can be in cadence with our Lord Jesus Christ.  Terrific job Allyn, keep it up, share whenever and wherever you find the opportunity.  The opportunity isn't always what we expect, but knowing the road you are on, it is the Lord Jesus Christ who will guide you on this wonderful journey. Off this beautiful acoustic musical CD goes to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  Thank you Allyn for making a Saturday my Sunday.

CD Reviews: CHARI HELDENBRAND - A Little Piece of Heavenly Country

CHARI HELDENBRAND
A Little Piece of Heavenly Country
High Cotton - You and Me - Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms - Waltz Of The Angels - How Far Is Heaven - Sugar Time - Somewhere Between Your Heart and Mine - You're My Best Friend - Sing Me Back Home - Walk Through This World With Me - Don't Be Angry - Running Bare - Geisha Girl - Such A Pretty World Today - Don't Cry Joni - This Old House - With This Ring - Fairth, Hope, & Charity - All Over But The Cryin' - Power In The Blood
 
What a great trip back to traditional country music this CD is.  Chari Heldenbrand, originally from Michigan, now makes her home with husband Louie in Iowa.  Her upbringing on a dairy farm in Michigan listening to those old time country music radio shows in the early morning hours took her right to the heart of 'real' country music.  So unlike so-called country music of today, Chari takes us on a real ride through some of the best country music songs ever written, even including a couple of bluegrass tunes. The steel player (maybe Doug Wise) is a very Hank Williamish player, and it surely does sound good to hear it again, and it blends so well with Chari's voice, especially on "You're My Best Friend," also a good song that demonstrates the tremolo done so very well by Chari.  The upright acoustic bass is also very nicely represented on this song, played by Kathy Miles.  Chari also keeps a special place in her heart for songs devoted to our Lord Jesus Christ.  Both "How Far Is Heaven" and "Power In The Blood"  are super good representations.  Doug Wise takes a good turn at providing some good lead vocals throughout,  perhaps his best rendition being "Don't Be Angry" a song written by Stonewall Jackson's older brother Wade who will be at the LeMars, Iowa, National Old Time Music Festival this year (Aug 29-Sept 4, 2016).  Chari Heldenbrand is a celebrated country singer, and has been traveling a lot this year, and she takes along her guitar and mandolin wherever she goes, and shares her great music at every opportunity.  Don't know where this particular CD was recorded, but the engineering is fine, the mix is great, and the overall effect is a very well done old-time traditional country music project.  Chari's fine voice stands out throughout, closing with "Power In The Blood" backing Doug Wise's nice lead. Super good CD, off it goes for Rural Roots Music Commission appraisal.  I hope it's not too late for this year's consideration.

BONNIE BROWN DIES AT 77 - July 31, 1938 – July 16, 2016

COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME MEMBER
BONNIE BROWN DIES AT 77

 
July 31, 1938 – July 16, 2016
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 16, 2016) – Bonnie Brown Ring, one-third of one of Country Music’s most enduring family groups as a member of The Browns, passed away earlier today (July 16) at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas following complications from lung cancer. She was 77 years old.

Born July 31, 1938 in Sparkman, Arkansas, Brown became enamored with music at an early age – thanks to the exposure she had to it from watching her older siblings, Maxine and James Edward. The two performed together, earning a hit in 1954 with “Looking Back To See.” Upon her graduation from high school, Bonnie joined her siblings, expanding their duet into a trio.

They began performing together on The Louisiana Hayride on KWKH in Shreveport, which led to appearances on ABC-TV’s Ozark Jubilee. Chet Atkins and RCA came calling soon after, and the Browns found themselves on the chart with hits such as “I Take The Chance” and “I Heard The Bluebirds Sing.” James Edward (now known as Jim Ed) was drafted in 1957, but the trio still managed to find time to record when he was on leave.

By 1959, the group recorded what would turn out to be one of the biggest hits of the era in “The Three Bells.” The song topped the Billboard Country charts – their first, and also crossed over to the apex of the Hot 100. The exposure of that hit led to appearances on every major variety series of the day, such as The Ed Sullivan Show. With her southern charm and stunning looks, Brown attracted the attention of many of the hottest male artists of the day, including Elvis Presley. The hits continued, with “Scarlet Ribbons,” “The Old Lamplighter,” and “Then I’ll Stop Loving You” all being showcases for their rich harmonies, where Bonnie sang the high harmony parts. The Grand Ole Opry came calling in 1963, inviting The Browns to become members.

Still a touring and recording favorite, Bonnie and Maxine decided to leave the trio in 1967 – citing a desire to spend more time with their growing families. Jim Ed continued on as a performer, with hits to his credit such as “Pop A Top.” He also remained a member of the Opry, where his sisters would join him from time to time.

In March of 2015, it was announced that The Browns would be among the new inductees for the new class of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Jim Ed passed away following his own battle with cancer prior to the official Medallion Ceremony that fall, though he was presented with his medallion a few days prior to his passing. Not too long after the Hall of Fame announcement, Bonnie announced that she too had been diagnosed with cancer, but was in attendance at the Hall for the induction ceremony in October.

The music of the Browns was known and loved all over the world, prompting the Country Music Hall of Fame CEO Kyle Young to say “When Bonnie Brown joined her brother, Jim Ed, and her sister, Maxine, in song, the siblings created an incomparable harmony: the smoothest and most elegant blend in country music. Bonnie offered harmony offstage as well. She brought people together with regal grace and kindness. She lived a remarkable life, singing on grand stages, raising a beloved family, entering the Country Music Hall of Fame, and breaking up with young Elvis Presley because he was, she said, a lousy kisser. Today, she is reunited with Jim Ed, and with her husband of 56 years, Brownie Ring.”

Bonnie Brown is survived by two daughters, Kelly (Ed) Bulleit, and Robin (Rob) Shaver, Kelly’s children, Clark, Kendall, and Raleigh, as well as Robin’s offspring, Skylar and Stone, and of course, by her sister, Maxine.
