Cee Cee Chapman

These second albums should confirm people's suspicions that Bogguss and Chapman are two of country music's most enjoyable Jill-come-latelies.

Both offerings (each co-produced with the singers by Jimmy Bowen) are characterized by intelligent song selection.

Bogguss sounds more subdued than she did on her 1989 debut (sorry, yodeling fans, but there's not a lay-tee-o-tee to be heard here). She docs, however, do some nice lamenting on "My Side of the Story." which she wrote with husband Doug Crider, and indulges her bluesy streak on the Even Stevens-Hillary Kanter tune "Blue Days."

Chapman, at times sounding like Cher gone down-home, maintains a high intensity level, yet has fun with such tracks as the Rick Carnes-Pam Tillis song "What Would Elvis Do." Wondering how Elvis might face dilemmas in her life, she considers whether he would buy a pink Cadillac, decides in the affirmative and adds. "He'd say, I'll take that pink one/and one for Mama too." "Dance with the One That Brought You" is a restated piece of folk wisdom from Sam I login and Gretchen Peters, and the Stevens-Kanter duo is represented on Chapman's album, too, by "Everything."

Chalk up two votes against the sophomore jinx. (Bogguss: Capitol; Chapman: Curb/Capitol)
