Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ROSIE FLORES & THE PINE VALLEY COSMONAUTS

GIRL OF THE CENTURY

2009-10-19

Rockabilly Filly Rosie Flores has teamed up with Waco Brother Jon Langford for a CD that covers blues, country, rock & rockabilly. The CD begins with the bluesy track “Chauffeur” where Rosie’s vocals sound a lot like a Sue Foley.” This Little Girls Gone Rockin” and “This Cat’s in the Doghouse” are classic Rockabilly Rosie. The track “Half Way Home” employs an underlying reggae beat and would be my pick the CD’s top single. “I Ain’t Got You” and “Dark Enough at Midnight” once again showcase Rosie’s bluesy side. “Get Rhythm” is an upbeat and well done version of the Johnny Cash classic. It is easy to see the influence Jon Langford has had on this CD especially on the rocking track “You’re The One”. This CD represents Americana Roots Music at its finest from two of its finest recording artists. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
