Picks and Pans Review: The David Frizzell and Shelly West Album

David Frizzell and Shelly West

No longer just Lefty Frizzell's little brother and Dottie West's daughter, David and Shelly are the Country Music Association's 1981 duo of the year and just about the best new combination since chili and beer. This, their second album, is a little on the slick side—you'd probably consider it down home only if you lived at Hollywood and Vine—but their voices, both individually and together, have pleasantly rough edges that lend character. The songs are nicely turned, especially Frizzell's Breaking Up a Good Thing, I Just Came Here to Dance and the old Ruby and the Romantics hit Our Day Will Come, which is backed buoyantly by Dennis Brown's banjo and Jay Dee Maness' steel guitar. We ain't heard the last of these two, folks.
