Title - 'Loves Funny That Way' (Aspirion Records)
Artist - Kathie Baillie
WARNING: This new release from Kathie Baillie is a songwriter's showcase and a vocal delight! This 10 song collection, once again produced by husband Michael Bonagura; and who himself co-wrote some of the songs; explores the fragility and power of love relationships, as usual. In truth, 'Love's Funny That Way' conveys a feeling of intimacy and is tastefully arranged with a clean acoustic approach that demonstrates the simple power of a great song. From the title track through 'Gone Away'(with Jim Photogolo), 'Never Knew Lonely' (with Vince Gill) and 'Anchor Me,' on through both 'Old Glass Case' (with Paulette Carslon & Alyssa Bonagura) and 'Each Day I Live,' Baillie demonstrates why she has four CMA award nominations as well as numerous hit singles. In fact, the understated acoustic approach on the CD only adds to the intimacy in this beautiful collection of love songs.
