The best of some really great CDs

I heard Rosa's Coronas on Internet radio and ordered the CD based upon that impression. It seemed to capture the soul and conflicts of those chosing Cuba or the U.S. for their lives, while subtly painting that as a metaphor for all lives. It also captured the charm of La Raza and their courage, as even Fidel couldn't slow down the Pope. The CD forces you to think and to feel and, ending in a magnificent Ave Maria, leaves even the most calous heart warmer somehow for the experience.

Subtle and soulful

This album by Kate Campbell can appear to be a bit darker than much of her other work, but it still rings true to Campell's excellent workmanship. It delves into the heart of many difficult issues, such as racism in "Look Away" and parent-child connections in "In My Mother's House." Some of the most touching include the pleading "Who Will Pray for Junior" about a mother's love and "Rosa's Coronas" about a Cuban cigar-roller.

I have been a long-time fan of Campbell's work and would recommend Rosaryville as some of her best.
