Review Text Carol Elizabeth Jones made her rep singing with husband James Leva, first at Rounder and later at Copper Creek. Her vocals, like Jean Ritchie's and Ginny Hawker's, are delivered with great feeling, and prove perfectly apt for old-time music. On Girl from Jericho, Jones is joined by Laurel Bliss for a lovely album that draws heavily from traditional country music. Bliss, like Jones, sings a flawless lead, but the real treat is how the singers' voices intertwine. The album begins with a nice take on A.P. Carter's "Meet Me By the Moonlight, Alone" followed by a relaxed rendition of "Trying to Get to You." The songs are adorned by simple but full arrangements, featuring John Reischman on mandolin, Ruthie Dornfeld on fiddle, and Nancy Katz on bass. Jones adds rhythm guitar and Bliss offers some lovely slide guitar work. Most of the material circles around the theme of love lost or love gone wrong. There's a sad, lonesome version of "You Don't Tell Me That You Love Me Anymore" and a fine, two-stepping take on "One Morning in May." Jones has also penned three originals for Girl from Jericho, and they blend well with the more traditional material. This is a charming recording that old-time music fans will not want to miss. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford Jr.
