Reg Benoit, a great country singer and songwriter from
Lindsay, Ontario, Canada, contributed four original songs to this very
nice country recording done for KMA Records in Nashville, and recorded
at the Kitty Wells Studio.  The insert does not mention who the
musicians are, but they are doing a wonderful job interpreting these
original songs. Reg Benoit was in a serious accident in `1998, nearly
lost his life, and no one ever expected he’d be doing music again,
especially recording classic/traditional country music.  His voice is
right on, though he sometimes becomes quite involved in the songs, and
his soul shines through when he reaches these little moments of
perfection.  One of his originals “You’ve Got Me Back In Love” is an
up-tempo love song, and far better than anything coming from the
so-called top-40 country artists of today.  Keith Bradford was the
producer and Mike Bradford was the engineer. All of these elements are
right on, they did a super job of mixing, and the final recorded product
is a fine one.  Fiddle and steel work throughout is super good
country.  “It Seemed Like the Right Thing To Do” is a fine
representation of good typical country instrumentation.  The last song
on this CD is “Send The Angels Down” a great song written by Randy
Albright.  Super good album from Reg Benoit.  This one goes to the Rural
Roots Music Commission for further investigation for CD of the Year
awards in 2015.
