Here's an un-edited E-Mail to Barrister Records...
Dear Barrister Records.
My name is Peter Rouch and I´m a country dj from Faroe Islands National Radio in Europe, where I have a program called "Roots & Rhythm" playing country music old and new. I´m a member of the CMA, and in my job, I often get free CD´s sent from various sources. I seldom react to them, though I often play them, but I feel I must react to your CD Greg Windhams "She Knows What To Do", which arrived recently. This is simply the best debut CD, I´ve heard for ages and ages (well actually since Conway Twitty put out "Sings" in 1966!). Conway was my very favorite country singer and before that he was my favorite rock´n´roller, so I´ve always had a soft spot for his imitators. But I feel that Greg Windham is not an imitator, but a unique talent with a feel for country music, that I haven´t heard in ages and that should make him a superstar.! I enjoyed the CD right from the opening track through "Highway 98". This is a CD that I certainly will play time and time again.Thanks again.
