A lively and thoroughly entertaining tribute to classic country duets.
The instrumentation and sound is unalloyed, straight-ahead country.
Great country duets are an American treasure. Recorded by country music royalty in Nashville in the 1960s and ’70s, these songs of love and heartbreak have a universal resonance that spans generations and cultures.
New York folk-rock artist Jenni Muldaur and British singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson grew up decades from when and hundreds of miles from where these timeless songs were recorded, yet the poetry and hard-luck humor in the great country duets spoke to them. Their 12-song album Once More: Jenni Muldaur and Teddy Thompson Sing the Great Country Duets is a collection of teardrop ballads and reflective mid-tempo songs where they exude their own easy charm with their honeyed vocal phrasing, seamless lead vocal swapping, and sumptuous harmony vocals. The duo is deftly supported by elegantly essential traditional country accompaniment, featuring lonesome pedal steel, chicken pickin’ electric guitars, and a nuanced but unhurried rhythm section.
