Dream #29

A new Cindy Bullens album is always cause for celebration—after all, she's released only six in the last 27 years. Dream #29 is particularly engrossing, as the singer/songwriter's aching melodies guide you through songs about haunted hearts and new beginnings. Old friend Elton John contributes piano to the title cut, and there are enjoyable vocal turns from Delbert McClinton and (no kidding) Boston Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield—but her most valuable collaborator is producer Ray Kennedy, who keeps the focus clearly and cleanly on Cindy's incisive songs.
