This Minnesota country singer is in fine form on this
particular CD “Country Style.”  Country style it is, no doubt about
that. Angie has a very nice voice, and she knows how to use it.  After
listening to all the songs on this particular CD, I was wondering why,
as the lyrics so plainly indicate, why she is constantly looking for a
man, but when she finds one, she leaves him for someone more
satisfying.  Oh well, that’s the stuff of country songs, not real life. 
Whoa, wait a minute, that’s not quite right.  Everything is set
straight in the very wonderful song written by Jessi Colter, “Storms
Never Last.”  Angie is a fine musician too, performing on acoustic
guitar; bass; mandolin; plus the lead and harmony vocals.  Recorded at
What’s Hennepin Studio in Cedar, Minnesota, I like the mix.  Tom Kesanen
plays harmonica throughout this project, and adds ‘just-right’ drop
ins at the right places.  Joe Chock is very audibly present with steel
and Dobro.  I think I like him best on Dobro, it blends so well with the
harmonica, and somehow makes the entire presentation more authentically
country.  Angie has a very nice vibrato in her voice, and knows how to
use it to embellish a good song.  Angie is also a very proficient
songwriter.  Five songs are hers, and some second verses composed by
Angie in other songs.  My favorite is “Red Hat Salute” written to Hank
Snow’s melody of “Movin’ On,” about those wonderful elderly ladies that
travel around wearing red hats and having fun.  Come and see us Red
Hats, we guarantee you’ll have a good time.  This CD is one of Angie’s
older projects, but it still holds true to what country music is all
about.  Highly recommended for a good-time listen.
