Editorial Reviews

Singer-songwriter Pegi Young has said, "I m just trying to tell some stories and make music that I can get behind. " That conviction has never rung truer than on her 2011 album, Bracing For Impact. Her third release, and second for Vapor Records, the 11-song disc spotlights Pegi s beautifully spare and resonant vocals, world-weary and eloquent lyricism, and hushed yet immediate emotional landscape. Bracing For Impact features Pegi once again accompanied by her acclaimed recording and touring band, the Survivors: legendary keyboard player Spooner Oldham on piano, bassist Rick Rosas, guitarist Kelvin Holly, and drummer Phil Jones. The album was produced by Pegi Young with the Survivors, with the exception of the final track, "Song For A Baby Girl, " produced by Elliot Mazer.


Eight of the album s 11 songs are originals written by Pegi Young, with highlights including "Flatline Mama" featuring a horn section and background vocals from The Watson Twins "No Heart Beats Sound, " and "Trouble In A Bottle. " Neil Young wrote the rollicking "Doghouse, " and contributes background vocals and harmonica as well. Neil is also featured playing electric guitar on "Lie" and "Song For A Baby Girl, " and on harmonica for "Number 9 Train, " written by the late bluesman Tarheel Slim. On "I Don t Want To Talk About It" a song by Crazy Horse s Danny Whitten that first appeared on that group s 1971 album Chandra Wilson delivers additional vocals.

Pegi Young's new album, Bracing For Impact, is her 3rd album and its a great one. Backed by her Survivors band, Spooner Oldham, Rick Rosas, Kevin Holly, Phil Jones and at times her husband, who also makes some great great music. Pegi is also backed vocally on some songs by the Watson Twins. I've been a fan of Neil's work since 1987 when i was 5 years old and I've bought Pegi's first two albums, Pegi Young and Foul Deeds, when they were released and they both are also great records. Bracing For Impact kicks it up a notch on some songs with a fuller rock and roll band sound which I love. Overall, another excellent release from Pegi Young and her band, great music to kick band and relax it or drink with friends to. I'm sure they are a fun and excellent band to see live. I hope they tour near Philadelphia this year. If your a fan of Pegi's or Neil's be sure to pick this one up, it is excellent! (Buy the CD or Vinyl, don't waste your $ on low fidelity compressed MP3's)

Very pretty compilation by this singer, and wife of legend Neil Young. Nothing more would be expected then this music from the soul. Very enjoyable, recommended for discriminating tastes.

I received this CD about a week ago and I love Pegi, I've loved Neil 40 years and jealous of Pegi. I love her voice and hope Neil & Pegi do an album together. I love the songs Pegi wrote, but "I Don't Want to Talk About It" by Danny Whitten is beautiful and Danny
would love it. This is for the true Neil fan I bought "Foul Deeds" and found out she had another album. Now I can listen to Pegi and
Neil a;; day.
