Sweethearts of the Rodeo

Sisters Janis Gill and Kristine Arnold have become the sweethearts of the country music world since their debut album in 1986, and this record should keep everybody feeling good about them. It includes more of the ladies' neo-Everly sound, especially on the more deliberate tracks, such as the Michael Garvin-Bucky Jones tune Blue to the Bone or Janis and Don Schlitz's regretful You Never Talk Sweet. A version of the Everlys' So Sad (To Watch Good Love Go Bad) gets a boost from backup vocals by Rodney Crowell and Janis' husband, Vince. The pair's first single from the album Satisfy You seems a recycling of Since I Found You, the big hit off their first record, but there's snap as well as surprise in hearing the sweethearts do I Feel Fine in basically the same arrangement the Beatles used in 1964. (The song was one of the few to which Ringo Starr's drumming, kicking the track along just as it starts to drag, made a noteworthy contribution.) The zippy title track, by David Hidalgo and Louie Perez of Los Lobos, sets the tone for the generally lively proceedings. (CBS)
