*********************************************

“The new recording of Never the Bride’s soulful pop ballad “The Living Tree,” done up in brassy Goldfinger-style with a piercing electric-guitar solo, is so good one wishes for all-new material.”

Thanks to Peter who adds:

“I second wanting an album of all new material!!”
