Picks and Pans Review: Worth a Listen

CAN THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN
The Original Carter Family (Columbia/Legacy)
Country's first crossover act, the Carters, transcended genres and cultures with these haunted mountain hymns, rocking train songs, English folk and blues ballads.

LA LUNA
Sarah Brightman (Angel)
The ethereal soprano gives full theatrical treatment to operetta works by Beethoven, Handel, Dvorák, Rachmaninoff and, yes, Procol Harum ("A Whiter Shade of Pale"). Her ex, Andrew Lloyd Weber, would be proud.

SWIMMING IN CHAMPAGNE
Eric Heatherly (Mercury)
With his Sun-kissed Memphis sound, this young rockabilly cat has scored a hit with his cover of the Statler Brothers' "Flowers on the Wall." The rest of the self-penned CD is as inviting as its title.
