KRISTI ROSE AND THE MIDNIGHT WALKERS (Buy CDs by this artist)
Some People (Rounder) 1986

High-voltage country-western rock from New York: powerhouse singer Rose, backed by a loud trio that boasts ex-Television bassist Fred Smith, belts out twangy Nashville-styled originals and a couple of classics on this energetic debut. Rose's bracing voice takes after Wanda Jackson and is the most notable ingredient here; the Midnight Walkers wander between polite country backing and near-punk aggression. The Uptown Horns help out on a couple of tracks.
