When you're young, you're bombarded by new music. And if you're at
all like I was, you like a remarkable amount of what you hear. As you
get older (okay, old), you're exposed to a lot less. And like even
less of it. At some point I got worried that I was becoming my
parents. Could Time/Life or Reader's Digest record collections be far
But there was hope, in the form of Joss Whedon. Although I was a late
discoverer of Buffy and Angel, I caught up as the seasons were
released on DVD. And every now and then a well chosen song would hold
my attention. Such was the case with
Place Called Home,
a lovely song that was used to end a particularly emotional episode of
Angel. And that led me to listen to more of Kim Richey's work,
despite its off-putting characterization in the genre of Country.
Heck, if there were more country CDs like this one, even I might
become a convert.
