Album Notes
Fayssoux's debut album "Early" is a stunning work of grace and beauty, featuring a combination of originals, works of old friends (like Rodney Crowell and Paul Craft), traditional folk, old-time gospel, country rock and love ballads. Fayssoux's voice was an integral element of some of country music's finest recordings. As Fayssoux Starling, she sang duet and harmony vocals on Emmylou Harris' "Green Rolling Hills", "Spanish is a Loving Tongue," "Bluebird Wine", "Too Far Gone" and more. After years out of the recording business, Fayssoux (now McLean) was rediscovered by music journalist, author and singer-songwriter Peter Cooper, who convinced her to return to performing and who produced this record. In a fun turn of events on this CD, Emmylou Harris now sings harmonies for Fayssoux. Other guests include Ricky Skaggs, The Whites, David Ball and the legendary Lloyd Green on pedal steel and Dobro.

WOnderful Cd by a deeply feeling and talented artist. If you like traditional American music, you will like this CD. I've always loved her voice from the early Emmylou Harris records. It's great that she has finally made her own statement.

This is the album I've been patiently waiting for for a l.o.n.g. time. Was it worth the wait? You betcha. I'm only disappointed that I can't award it 6 stars or even 7. An eclectic mix of traditional songs interlaced with Fayssoux's own compositions and those of Rodney Crowell, David Ezell, Paul Craft and Larry Murry, wonderful production from Peter Cooper (check out his new album "Mission Door" thru cdbaby) and magnificant musicianship from the likes of Ricky Skaggs, The Whites, Lloyd Green, Emmylou herself and David Ball, make it the 'must have' album of 2008. Acoustic driven country music as it should be, but so often isn't, these days. If there is a standout track then take a listen to "Save it, Save it" because this will immediately transport you back to those heady 80s days of Emmylou's Hot Band. It just makes be grin hugely every time I hear it. So, c'mon all of you out there, don't delay, just buy it, listen, enjoy and spread the word.
