This sounded like one of those white-bread pop albums folks occasionally try to pawn off as country -- until you started listening to the lyrics. Voices in the Wind
may have been bigger on string sections than twin fiddlers, but Bogguss
' choice in covers remained just off-center enough to be exciting, with Cheryl Wheeler
's "Don't Wanna" and Lowell George
's "Heartache." She revived John Hiatt
's "Drive South" for a hit. The more risky material -- especially the bleary-eyed blues of "Eat at Joe's" and the troubled alcoholic haze of Bogguss
' own "In the Day" -- shows why the Country Music Association gave her its Horizon Award just before the release of this album.
