The first thing one notices about Rayne Magill’s music, is
her guitar.  She has a remarkable sounding instrument that perfectly
reflects her own lovely voice.  The bass end on this instrument is truly
remarkable.  The second thing you notice is that this CD is all
originals except for four songs.  Four out of twenty-two tells me that
Rayne has something to say with those 18 songs that are original.  The
third thing one notices is that she pays homage, respect, love,
adoration, and belief in her Lord Jesus Christ.  It’s songs devoted to
Him that we hear first, and they are all delightful, lovely, meaningful
songs.  It’s the rest of her originals that I found more than
interesting.  By the time she gets to “Whispers & Memories” she is
still talking about Jesus, but the tempo and the more ‘relaxed’ sound is
truly easy to listen to.  Rayne went to the best acoustic recording
studio in Omaha, Tesco Productions, to do this very lovely musical
adventure.  We finally find the ‘real’ Rayne Magill in “Lil Rock &
Roller.”  In this song she describes the little girl who worked her
fingers to the bone on that old Silvertone guitar.  Wow, has that guitar
sound changed with the one she plays today.  We learn all about who the
perfect man is, and a quick trip to Padre Island, down Texas way, to
rediscover love and perhaps its departure.  Padre Island is one of my
favorite places to visit, the white sand and sea gulls who eat out of
your hand is a nice experience.  She finalizes this huge collection of
songs with another of my favorites “Mr. Bojangles,” a song she sings at
many of her festival appearances like Wahoo, LeMars, and Fremont. In
total, this is a very pleasant CD to listen to, and Tom in the studio
did an excellent job capturing Rayne’s many mood changes.
