The first impressions

c_rduran

The first time I heard her was at the last concert cafe in Houston, Texas, it was an enchanting experience, she caught me by surprise I was not expecting that a pretty petite women to have such a fantastic voice and play such good guitar.

I love her singing, playing, and songs including her righteous version of "Still Alive and Well".

Unfortunately I just discovered Carolyn – Thanks Don Imus. She is amazing as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. This is a GREAT album. I’m a big blues fan and she's not to be missed. Another great Texas Blues Rocker in the tradition of Johnny Winter, The Vaughan Bro., Janis Joplin et al.

They Say All Music Guide

On her seventh album, Texas blues singer/guitarist Carolyn Wonderland teams with Ray Benson, leader of Asleep at the Wheel, who serves as her producer, co-writer on two songs, backup guitarist, and the head of her record label, Bismeaux Productions. Benson seems to have just let Wonderland be herself, and that results in a varied collection that begins by emphasizing her blues-rock bona fides on the lap steel workout “Misunderstood” and ends with the ballad “Feed Me to the Lions,” on which she is accompanied by the Tosca String Quartet. In between, there is plenty of room for her tasty, sometimes ferocious guitar playing on both originals and such covers as a version of the Johnny Winter signature song “Still Alive and Well.” She has a powerful, rhythmic voice, her phrasing, if not her timbre, sometimes recalling Janis Joplin’s, perhaps because they come from the same part of the world. While the rockers clearly provide a comfort zone for her, Wonderland seems equally at home on calmer material, notably the slow blues “Bad Girl Blues” and “I Don’t Want to Fall for You,” which sounds like a lost song from the days of Tin Pan Alley. Such versatility serves her well and only whets the appetite for her next guitar solo. – William Ruhlmann
