On September 28, singer-songwriter Stephanie Urbina Jones released "Tularosa," her honky tonk classic country mariachi album, where she pays homage to some of the greatest traditional country artists.
The album opens with her take on Patsy Cline's "Walking After Midnight," and it is followed by her rich, upbeat mariachi version of Dolly Parton's "Jolene."
After "Cold Cold Heart," she honors the "Great Lady of Country Music" Lynn Anderson with a refreshing rendition of her signature tune "Rose Garden." Anderson herself would have been pleased with this soaring version by Urbina Jones.
Urbina Jones takes her fans and listeners on a classic country trip to San Antone with her cover of Charley Pride's "Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone." She also shows her sassy side on Loretta Lynn's "You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man)" and Jeannie C. Riley's "Harper Valley P.T.A." An added bonus is hearing her cover "Jolene" and Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" in Spanish.
Tularosa is available on iTunes.
The Verdict
Overall, Stephanie Urbina Jones is able to take all of these classic country recordings, dust them off, and give them her unique mariachi twist. She is very expressive on this album, and she manages to stay true to her musical roots, and the result is magical. This warm collection would be perfect for vinyl. Tularosa garners 4.5 out of 5 stars.
