Dreams of Flying (Sunbird)

She's not quite the Emmylou Harris of West Texas, but with Dreams of Flying, Kimmie Rhodes travels a similarly wistful, delicate path. The soul-tinged "Like Love to Me," co-written with Gary Nicholson, and "Luh Luh Love," embellished with a funny horn riff, stand apart, and one can hear Rhodes challenging herself into new realms. The spirit and sadness of the rest is standard for Rhodes, and fans are sure to find it bewitching.
