Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

After surviving a serious car accident, Lewis and Rozum were inspired to produce an album steeped in the country tradition. The result is a delicate triumph featuring relaxed performances and soft harmonies. The pair interpret songs of the Carter Family, the Louvin Brothers, Molly O'Day, the Everly Brothers, and Peter Rowan. Sally Van Meter and Mike Marshall are among the many instrumental guests while Lewis' own fiddle talents are displayed on uptempo cuts including "Sleepy-Eyed John/Tom and Jerry" and "Poor Country Boy," and on her original ballad "Clark and Hazel." --Marc Greilsamer

I've been listening to Laurie Lewis for nearly twenty years, and I've always been inspired by her clear voice, beautiful phrasing and boundless gift for telling stories and painting pictures through her music. The Oak and The Laurel is no exception. Laurie and her pal Tom are wonderful together. This has been one of my most favorite CDs recently. The songs and stories are thought-provoking and beautifully wrought.
I'm sending a copy to my sister 'cause I love it so much.

The music on this CD has a lot of heart and good feeling. I bought it when it was pretty new and eight years later it still sounds wonderful. My only complaint about this CD is that the lyrics are not included, instead in the liner notes you will find photographs that illustrate each song. Incidentally, the Oak and the Laurel was nominated for the 1996 Traditional Folk Album Grammy Award.

Received my cd and have listened to it several times already. It has some soulful old-time songs and great acoustic music. A real treasure for my library of favorite folk variety.
