The father and
daughter duo of THE KENDALLS created a perfect blend of
traditional and contemporary Country music, sparked by Jeannie' s
soaring, sensuous vocals. Her voice, a high lonesome honky-tonk, has a
beautiful range that drips pure emotion.
The time is now ripe for the rediscovery of The Kendalls'
distinctive sound, with the reissue of these two albums.
Jeannie' s voice is given full-throttle on such classic cheating songs
as 'Teach Me To Cheat' and the sensual 'Take Me To Heaven (Before You Take
Me Home)'. There' s a fine revival of the country-soul classic 'The Dark
End Of the Street', full of dark irony, heartache and winsome charm. And
they take a positive stab at Arthur Crudup' s 'My Baby Left Me', which is
quite different to the Elvis Presley version. And Merle Haggard' s
'Somewhere Between' turns out to be a perfect fit for Jeannie' s voice.
These long forgotten and often overlooked recordings are a stellar
example of pure true-to-the-roots country music.
These two LPs, originally released in 1985, have now been re-mastered
and are reissued here together on CD for the first time.
