CD Review: "Let's Just Be Real" - Laura Tate
Laura has some solid support on this cd. Tony Braunagel on drums. Teresa James on background vocals and her man Terry Wilson on bass. Keys, a guitar player and a horn section to round it out. Tony is not the producer for once, but Terry is. This isn’t rocking blues despite the cool cover of Thin Lizzy’s The Boys Are Back In Town. (FYI- that’s the song I linked below in the hear for yourself.) These songs are smooth as Sinatra. The way Laura sings these songs might be described as sexy, I’m not sure, my folks told me not to worry about that stuff until I’m older so that’s what I’m doing. It’s a 54 year streak of pure innocence. I can find no fault with this cd, and that includes production, playing, singing, song writing and the picture of Laura in the leather britches. These are all relationship songs of one type or another and she sings them all convincingly. What’s not to love? How should I know? Ask my parents. I want to hear Laura sing sultry songs to me, after I learn what that word has to do with birds or bees, so still years out there. Some days I take a walk in the neighborhood, usually go by the grade school. Once I heard some of the more worldly 2nd graders talking about their carnival knowledge, you know, the tilt-a-whirl and what-not, or how to get a good prize on the cranes. Maybe that’s not the word I’m looking for….
