LOVE'S FUNNY THAT WAY Kathie Baillie (Aspirion Records)
With her first solo effort, Baillie is making her comeback a most welcome event. As the crystal-voiced lead singer of the 80s trio, Baillie and the Boys, she was the heart of six successful country albums and 10 Top-10 hits. Thankfully for fans, her voice is as good as ever.

Baillie got her start singing background for such artists as Dan Seals, Lynn Anderson, Randy Travis, and others. Then, with her future husband Michael Bonagura and pal Alan LeBeouf, formed a group specializing in close harmonies and catchy tunes. After the group's skyrocket with RCA fizzled, Baillie spent a couple years as a co-host and performer on the Nashville Network.

Baillie's sound now, as then, is passionate, with vocals that seem geuninely heartfelt as they wring emotion out of the lyrics. The 10 numbers on this album are, without exception, very good. One special treat is "Old Glass Case," done with Baillie's daughter Alyssa Bonagura and the song's creator, Paulette Carlson. Another worth mention is Vince Gill's "Never Knew Lonely," with a vocal assist from Gill himself.

I do not exactly agree with the comment posted by Mr. Peter Anderi.
I do agree that Kathie baillie does not need the Boys. She doesn't even need musical accompaniment with her perfect voice!
However, the fact remains that she first came into public hearing range with the Boys and the music that band has created over their long career-with Kathie singing lead-can not and never should be forgotten. They are an absolutely fantastic band! RCA blew this opportunity, and I still wonder why no other national company picked them up way back when.

Top of the bill
Wonderful cd and a very good voice. I compare it with great other country lady's like Emmylou Harris, Martina McBride Anne Murray and so on. First class cd.Especially the duet with Vince Gill marvelous.

Cliff Douglas

I've Loved this ladies voice from the first time I heard her sing. This new CD is awesome and the Christmas CD is Great as well. Great Job, Kathie and Team !

Tamara at CD Baby

With commanding vocals that don’t compromise bell-like clarity for volcanic power, coming from an internal fire in the gut not seen often in pop or rock, let alone country music, Kathie Baillie has a remarkable way of harnessing free-spirited, unbound emotion to guide and direct a song. With such passion and enormous feeling capacity, it’s almost surprising that she has such refined control over her voice and innate musicality. While this talent might still continue to mesmerize critics, Baillie is no newbie to the country pop scene. After ten Top-10 hits with the 80s trio, Baillie and the Boys, and having worked and sung with such notables as Dan Seals, Lynn Anderson, and Randy Travis, this phenomenon that she embodies is not so hard to comprehend after all, especially on a first solo effort which allows her to shine more than ever. With professional songwriting skills, naturally memorable choruses and melodies that won’t leave once you let them in, her style is nourished with integrity and full and genuine heart, tangible in every track. Straddling adult contemporary and pop, her country roots are complemented and highlighted such that fans of Karen Carpenter and Anne Murray will be just as pleased as those of Martina McBride and Emmylou Harris. A fantastic contemporary country release!

Peter Anderl

Kathie doesn't need "The Boys"
Altogether this is a very fine "Country"-album, no weak song, all are good for air-play, especially her duet with Vince Gill and the interesting cover version of "Old Glass Case" with its songwriter Paulette Carlson.


Another Knockout
I've been a Kathie Baillie fan since the 80's. There is something about her voice that just blows me away. Tamara (below) pretty much sums up Kathie's voice... "bell-like clarity... volcanic power, coming from an internal fire in the gut". Over the years Kathie, along with Michael and Alan, have produced a number of absolutely *killer* songs. Kathie's voice, blended with the likes of Michael and Alan's luscious harmonies can be a near-religious experience. Too bad that there seems to be only a few dozen people in the world these days that appreciate this kind of talent.
