'Amour' is far from dead if this splendid ten-track release is anything to go by. An album with some truly wonderful good old music, played with absolute mastery and ability at every turn, the surprises flow from the unexpected tracks covered here and the never-overplayed nuances at the core. Taken in the round, 'Amour' is little beauty of an album, a genuinely lovely release that never rattles or roars but always slips down nicely full of taste and talent.
"Amour" is the first collaboration between famed Colin Linden (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, ABC's hit TV show ''Nashville)'' and Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars, Black Crowes). It is made up of a collection of classic love songs from Americana, featuring vocalists from Nashville.
