Priscilla Coolidge-Jones

There has to be a certain amount of pressure involved for a performer when Rita Coolidge is her younger sister, Kris Kristofferson her brother-in-law and Booker T. Jones her husband. But Priscilla can feel confident of holding her own at family sing-alongs, even if, at 35, she is a relative unknown. This is her third album and second with Jones—best known as the Booker T. who hung out with the M.G.s, His arrangements here are in an insistent if subdued rock vein and get the most out of his wife's voice. It's not the crystalline instrument of sister Rita, but Priscilla may be a shade better at handling harder-driving material, like the Donna Terry Weiss-Jackie De Shannon tune Sweet Bed of Feeling.
