CHRISTGAU CONSUMER GUIDE

LOU ANN BARTON: "Old Enough” (Asylum):: She’s got a fine little instrument, like a nubile Bonnie Bramlett—the drawl pure cracker, the pitch and rhythm deep blue. But what she’s selling it with is tractability. For Glenn Frey she poses as a flapper in the age of Deep Throat, for Jerry Wexler she sings good old songs in good old Muscle Shoals. Sincerely in both cases I’m sure, which makes things worse.
