Paula Nelson - Little City


I wrote recently about Lukas Nelson, son of Willie, and have a while back referred to Teddy Thompson and his familial lineage - now it is a brief return to the Nelson tree and Paula with her solid and confident album Little City.

She has a fine voice with some natural vibrato but, unlike Lukas, there isn't the dynastic Willie tonal genes. However, dad does add his dueting imprint on the straight and faithful version of John Fogarty's 'Have You Ever Seen The Rain', both in vocals and idiosyncratic guitar solo. Beautiful. Another memorable track is the rocker 'Drink' with accompaniment by friend Carolyn Wonderland.

It has made a most pleasant evening's listen.
