" I always feel thrilled when I get my hands on a CD that is well produced and packaged. As far as I am concerned, these standards earns a disc ten marks.
Mona Murray's Another Woman CD lives up to its quality and presentation, sounds quite international and has earned the ten bonus points. The recording artiste of immense experience has a great voice, and her musical accompaniment is first class. I like the haunting melody of the violin in some of the music.
This 18-track production is polished like my grandma's furniture, and shines like a light on a dark night.
The interpretations of the songs are fantastic, and hear this, they are written by Mona, except I Fall Again which is a collaboration with Gerald Calhoun of Lance and Pearl Publishing.
What I like about this CD is that the music flows gently like stream.
It's hard to choose a favourite song, because they are all great."
