Love Is... - Priscilla Paris
Priscilla Paris was a member of Phil Spector-produced girl group The Paris Sisters. This, from 1978, is an entirely self-penned effort, and well worth a listen. The opening track, 'Down By the River', is a moody slow-burner worthy of Lee Hazlewood's songs for Nancy Sinatra, featuring some great '70s synth atmospherics. The closing track dwells on the blissful unawareness of a dog that its owners' relationship has ended. In between are songs about love present and gone, and encroaching middle-age. Very easy on the ear, but like the best easy, there are real, hard emotions bobbing about in the eiderdown.
