New limited edition of Chasin' Wild Trains now available
Blue-eyed soul singer Kim Carnes’ new album Chasin’ Wild Trains is now available as a limited edition with 2 bonus tracks - an acoustic version of the classic ‘Bette Davis Eyes’ plus an acoustic version of the new single ‘Just To See You Smile’. E-Zine KindaMuzik wrote: ‘The songs on Chasin’ Wild Trains are a beautiful mix of Americana, Singer-songwriter and Country rock. Highlights include the catchy Lucid Dreams (a duet with Chuck Prophet) and the ballad If I Was An Angel. Carnes’ raspy voice reminds me strongly of colleague-songwriters like Lucinda Williams and Melissa Etheridge, but nevertheless has its own sound. Chasin’ Wild Trains is simply very beautiful’.
Buy the limited edition through Corazong.com .
