Clay County Remembered
'I have several Sue Nikas CDs but for sheer poetic beauty, 'Clay County Remembered' stands out. I listened to it with one of my favorite female singers and after a couple of songs she said, 'Who is that? I love those songs!' She grabbed the CD notes out of my hand and read the lyrics as she listened to the rest of the songs. She kept saying, 'Did you hear that? What a line!' Sue's melodiuc foot is in bluegrass and she has one of those clear, high wonderful bluegrass voices but her lyrical foot is planted in folk music with it's stories that evoke deep emotion. A great balance. If you like bluegrass, buy 'Clay County Remembered.' If you like folk, buy 'Clay County Remembered.' You get both in just the right balance. It is a CD you will treasure.' Dalton Roberts, Columnist, Singer, Songwriter This CD has all the bells and whistles of a first class production: beautiful singing, flawless instrumental work, and superb song selection. The original material really sets this CD head and shoulders above other projects. No matter what your mood, just hearing this CD will take your worries away and move you into a different place. You need to hear this CD twice in order to get the full impact of the great lyrics and the fervor and enthusiasm in Susan's voice. My listeners just loved everything about this project. I played the CD and received many requests to play all the songs over again....I hope I don't wear this CD out! Special kudos to Dennis Caplinger. He is like a fine wine. He gets better as he gets older!!!!! Al Shusterman KCBL/Backroads Bluegrass.
