Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

CHRISTINE OHLMAN & REBEL MONTEZ

THE DEEP END

2010-05-11

This may be the CD that doesn't leave my changer in 2010. There are so many "wow" moments on this disc that it would be impossible to say enough good things about it. Christine Ohlman otherwise known as the "Beehive Queen" from the Saturday Night Live band has never sounded better. This is Christine's first release of new material since 2004 and during that time she lost her friend and long time producer Doc Cavalier and Rebel Montez guitarist Eric Fletcher. Out of this loss Christine went back to the studio and recorded 15 tracks of some of the best blues, rock, R&B, and old time Do-Wop sounds being played today. This CD also features many special guests such as Ian Hunter on tracks 1&2, Catherine Russell on track 6, Marshall Crenshaw on Track 7 and Levon Helm on track 11. My advice is to dive into the Deep End and hold your breath for one great musical journey. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
