Superior Choices Reviews "Into the Woods"

Mel's boy Rodney has just released a new c.d. "Into The Woods". Mel Brown used to play country music that made you sit up and listen and while I caught only one or two sessions in which Mel played, I have always wondered how many of today's musical greats had musical families to kick start their careers.

The thirteen original Rodney Brown compositions on ,Into The Woods" tell stories of the lives, loves and social issues experienced by people of Northwestern Ontario.

I really like it, It has some country folk, some country rock, some politics, and even a soulful trumpet. Also included is a song [Casualty Of War] Rodney wrote in memory of Mel.

This is Rodney's eighth recording in a musical career spanning more than 25 years. Many of our children cut their musical teeth on Rodney's children's recordings. Now that his kids are grown and he can spend more time on the road, he is moving once again into the adult arena. I'm glad.
