2 - BELL, GLENNA - PERFECTLY LEGAL; SONGS OF SEX, LOVE - (CD) 
HONEY ISLAND


Recorded in four acts, this album unfolds as a stripped down, dramatic journey through seldom-told stories of "a real woman living a real life" at the turn of the twenty-first century. The production is spare, emphasizing Glenna Bells haunting vocals and memorable lyrics that treat contemporary and timeless themes ranging from Bells comical romp, "The Cougar Anthem," to her tragic dirge, "The Southern Gothic Wedding Waltz." She also delivers some unique covers, including a first-person, barrel-house version of "Frankie and Johnny", an a capella rendition of Sam Cooks "Lost and Lookin", and a stone-cold country duet take on Clint Eastwoods "Honky Tonk Man". Perfectly Legal will appeal to those who enjoy minimalist theater (Brecht, Strindberg, Beckett), the Alan Lomax collection, Songs of the South, and traditional country music.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Franky And Johnny 02. Lost And Lookin' 03. These Days 04. Honky Tonk Man 05. Big Kev 06. Hurricane 07. The Southern Gothic Wedding Waltz 08. The Cougar Anthem

3 - BELL, GLENNA - ROAD LESS TRAVELED - (CD) 
GLENNA BELL


"Any number of singer/songwriters sound like some guitar wielding predecessor. Glenna Bell goes beyond a list of influences. She doesnt sound like the usual suspects-Lucinda, Gillian, Iris, Mary Gauthier, etc. She sounds older than that. Way older. Like Texas is old. The Road Less Traveled plays like an old field recording. Youre listening . . . expecting to hear the pops and skips of old vinyl. With her arrangements raw,production back-porch sparse, and a haunting, halting vocal style, Bell fixes your attention on her songs . . . People are listening. You should too."- Mike Jurkovic, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
