A Diamond in the Rough

Covers albums are often glossed over as discs that are manufactured in between releases that actually count. You won’t feel that way if you give Carrie Rodriguez’ latest effort ‘Love and Circumstance’ a whirl. Rodriguez is wise enough to cover and alter a number of great songs, few have ever heard. Check out her exceptional version of Little Village’s ‘Big Love’ and Gillian Welch and David Rawling’s ‘I Made a Lover’s Prayer.’ Rodriguez has two very good albums full of originals. The folkie-Americana performer deserves some notice.
