groups are around for years to make great music to
encourage us and to get us up. Unfortunately, this
is not the case with The Wreckers, the tremendous
combination of Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp.
A couple of years ago The
Wreckers made a great studio CD called Stand
Still, Look Pretty, which was a huge hit. Then
the gals hit the road for a long time. Their music
was modern country with sweet harmonies and songs
that were killers, including the title track, along
with "The Good Kind", "My, Oh My", "Tennessee" ,
"Crazy People" and many more.
After touring, they made this
great CD/DVD combo titled Way Back Home: Live
From New York City which takes these same songs
plus three new ones to new heights. On my DVD player
and stereo, the recording is like they set up in my
living room to play, just great, live and kickin'
country music with a real hot band accompanying
them. There was just a tremendous chemistry between
the girls and the band. The ballads showed new life
and the rockers got the crowd really going.
This two disc set is something
really worth having, and it only costs the price of
one CD. I watched it two times straight through.
Just couldn't get over how good it sounded! Branch
and Harp not only sing but they play guitar too,
plus they had an array of beautiful guitars to
choose from. Sometimes they just sang. Honestly,
their style was a lot like the Dixie Chicks of the
"Wide Open Spaces" Days. We need another band like
that. This is so well done, the project is produced
by Neo Doyle. The CD sounds real good too. The sound
like they have been singing together forever. Well,
now they have parted ways, but The Wreckers was a
project that has a real lasting quality, this is a
CD/DVD without a bad song.
Need something to get you movin'
again, this is great country music!
