5.0 out of 5 stars A first-rate record January 29, 2011
By Rattler
Format:Audio CD
When you try to name the songs that stand out in an album and can't help but come up with more than half of them, then it's obvious you've fallen in love with it. So I freely admit I may not be objective here. I was alerted to this artist by a friend who urged me to check out Rachel's video "Summer's Gone" on Youtube and I was immediately taken in. Go there if you want an idea of what she sounds like.

Rachel Harrington's music is firmly within the folk-country-bluegrass spectrum without pulling your auditory nerves into uncharted territory, but what makes her special is an exceptionally beautiful voice as well as songwriting skills clearly above the genre's average. My humble opinion is that this young lady has Gillian Welch potential. How much she is already appreciated by musicians is shown by the line-up of studio cracks (including Marty Muse, Zak Borden, and Danny Barnes among others) who give this album it's distinctive sound.

Aside from the already mentioned track you should check out on Youtube, I was particularly impressed by the album's opener "Sunshine Girl" (a gentle waltz that sets the atmosphere), "The Ballad of Bill Miner" (an uptempo railroad song with a wonderfully plaintive chorus), "Up the River" (an murder ballad written by Laura Veirs, put here to eerie effect with acoustic guitar and electrified dobro as only accompaniment), "Walk to You" (toward the country end of Rachel's spectrum), and "Louis Collins" (a hauntingly beautiful and simple Mississippi John Hurt cover).

This album hasn't gotten a single review here after more than 3 years on the market? Have we got an undiscovered gem on our hands? Five stars - easy! Rachel Harrington's future should look very bright.
