This album includes a few tracks from each of her first 3 CDs along with 5 previously unrecorded tracks. 22 original tracks in all. It's a rich diversity of styles and genres. Most of the songs are with a full band instrumentation. A few are acoustic. This CD received great reviews from industry professionals and fans.
Review From Blues Art Studio: As you would expect, there are various changes in moods and emphasis in the music, which ranges from; breathlessly slow acoustic country swamp style blues to seriously rip, roaring toe-tappers. Sandy’s voice accordingly changes with noticeable ease from a soft, sexily husky, almost fragile whisper to a raucous, tearing bandsaw resaw to accommodate the twisting turning music; which; has in it amongst the flux of wonderfully arranged numbers a lazy haunting sax which seems to lead all the way through to the end.
A very fine album; soothing, rocking, dreamily rolling and extremely good!
Highly commendable! Brian Harman
Sandy released her 5th CD in October, 2010, titled “Sandy Atkinson & The True Loves,” which includes 12 original songs and four covers. It is a combination of studio sessions and a set from a show recorded live at the Palladium Theater with The True Loves last summer.
