    I was strolling through the CD isle today, and saw a CD by a country artist that I did not recognize. But there was a big sticker on the front of the CD that said:

    "No vocal tuning or pitch control was used in the making of this album."


    That got me curious as to what it actually sounded like. But I was broke and didn't want to buy it.

    I believe the name was Allison Moore.

    I started a thread about this back in August or September. I think it's the sort of thing we may start to see more of. So much of the vocals in popular music is processed and "corrected" that some strong voices are getting squeezed out.

    The artist is Allison Moorer, and the album is pretty solid. I may slightly prefer her second album The Hardest Part over the most recent, but I think both are well worth picking up.

    She has a great voice, and if you see her live, you can tell immediately that what you hear on the recordings is true to her voice. I caught a couple shows back in the fall, and she was terrific every time. Plus, she's very generous with her fans, hanging around afterwards to talk with people after the concerts. Refreshingly down to earth and someone for whom one wishes success.

    Isn't Alison Moorer the younger sister of Shelby Lynne, Grammy-winning "new" artist from a couple of years back? Looks like Lynne caught the Christopher Cross Syndrome as her follow-up album tanked.

    Yes, Allison Moorer is Shelby Lynne's younger sister.

    Goes to show how strange the Grammys can be when the best "new" artist had already released something like four albums previously. Love, Shelby, her follow-up to I Am Shelby Lynne, was a disappointment, I thought. Too much middle of the road, adult contemporary fare.
