ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ellen is a singer of traditional ballads. her repertoire is made up of songs from the child and warner collections as well as others, and of those learned from singers like herself who love the old songs. her rich, sonorous voice brings a unique color to the genre: it’s admittedly a bit too pretty and polished to compete with the powerful sounds delivered by the truly traditional southern singers. however, her earnestness and devotion earn ellen a place alongside these great singers.

----------
Gozion is a singer and pianist who favors traditional ballads, and does a fine job with a selection of them ranging from "Waly Waly" and "Black is the Color" to “Bright Morning Stars." The love and respect [she has] for the music…comes through clearly in [her] performances. Dirty Linen

Wish this CD is the first of several
Both the vocal and instrumental music on this CD are top quality, with a clarity and simplicity that authenticates these old pieces. My copy was given to me by a friend, and I was so impressed I've already begun spreading it around myself. The listener will find a full platter here, more than their money's worth. I was only disappointed when I discovered this was Ms. Gozion's only CD. I hope she will soon make more, since her voice has both the purity of a woman singing in the mountains and the excellence of a well-trained voice.

Soothing and Soulful
The songs on this CD have all survived the years and so will the artist. Ellen Gozion has a gift for storytelling. This CD contains a variety of music performed with wisdom and tenderness and a touch of melancholy. Ellen Gozion's voice has the timbre of rich drinking chocolate and the lilt of a spring afternoon. Please continue to share your music!

Beautiful!
I love the ballad songs on this CD and Ellen's voice! I hope Ms. Gozion will release further CD's. I've about worn this one out.

Great CD!
It was awesome! My soon-to-be-husband saw this CD in Pittsburgh Magazine. I bought it for him and we've both enjoyed listening to it immensely. We look forward to another CD.
