Crikeys, I just love the way the Australians keep country
music country.  This has got to be one of the best ‘real’ country albums
I’ve ever heard from down under.  Zeta Burns doesn’t only have a
stunningly beautiful country voice, she is a very accomplished
songwriter.  First song out of the chute is a lovely tribute to her
homeland.  Ian Hands is also one terrific singer, but more than that, he
can yodel like no one I’ve ever heard in that particular style.  AND he
also can do some of the standards like “Movin’ On” and make it sound
real.  I also like Don Brose who adds some interesting songs on this
CD.  I have never heard anyone but Sharon Kenaston (Nebraska) do Jerry
Chesnut’s song “They don’t Make Them Like My Daddy Anymore” and do it so
well, but Don Brose does a nice job with this absolutely great song. 
It’s Zeta Burns lovely country voice that really steals the heart away
however.  What’s even more incredible, though she sounds about 30, this
wonderful lady is over 83 years old.  Much of the backing music was
provided by Graeme Jensen who played lead; bass; rhythm; mouth organ;
mandolin; accordion; and sang harmony.  Candice Patrick added the fiddle
tracks.  Ian and Zeta have had an interesting career doing old-style
country music, as has Don Brose, and I would certainly use my Executive
Privilege to nominate this trio into our America’s Old Time Country
Music Hall of Fame.  If they can get to us from Australia is another
story, we’ll see. This is a very impressive CD, especially to someone
who likes their country music to be country.  Zeta wrote a very defining
song “They Don’t Play Country Music At The Opry Anymore,” and says it
as well, or better, than most of the folks who feel the same way about
how far removed today’s so-called country music is from it’s roots. 
Come to Iowa you three wonderful troubadours, and we’ll make you feel
right at home.
