Picks and Pans Review: Well...

Katey Sagal

Though television and music careers don't often mix (see Don Johnson or Bruce Willis), that's not the case with the debut album by Katey Sagal, who plays Peg Bundy on Fox's Married...with Children. Sounding like Rita Coolidge's soul sister, Sagal, who cowrote nine of the 12 songs on Well...and performed as a backup singer for heavy hitters including Bette Midler, Bob Dylan and Etta James before becoming an actress, might be that rare TV star turned recording artist not to wind up in punch-line oblivion.

Though Well...is not all smooth sailing—a few songs drown in middle-of-the-road hokum—Sagal delivers cuts like "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid" and "That's How Love Goes" with the soulful verve of a seasoned songbird. (The cliché police should have arrested those titles, though.) (Virgin)
