Folk Alley’s Top CDs of 2007 v.6

Barb Heller – Folk Alley Music Host – Top CD List for 2007

Shawn Camp & Billy Burnette – The Bluegrass Elvises, Vol 1
Camp & Burnette team up to deliver 13 of the King’s greatest hits. Priceless. It was released on the 30th anniversary of Elvis’ death.

Claire Lynch – Crowd Favorites
A collection of some of Claire’s most requested songs from her entire repertoire, spanning decades with her own band, and the Front Porch String Band. Her version of Wabash Cannonball is one of my favorites.

Robin & Linda Williams – Radio Songs
A collection of recordings from their “Prairie Home Companion” performances over the years. Best cut by a mile: “Marvin & Mavis Smiley – Down Home Diva”. It keeps me laughing out loud!

The Infamous Stringdusters – Fork in the Road
This group of young Nashville veterans has done a fine job with every one of the dozen tracks on this album. My favorite (a tough pick!): Poor Boy’s Delight.

Ricky Skaggs & The Whites – Salt of the Earth
13 tracks of really nice family harmonies that span a few generations. It just gives me a good feeling to listen to bluegrass gospel songs done by this one big family.
