Title - 'I Think About You' [7 Inch Vinyl Single]
Artist - Patsy Thompson
For those not in the know, Canadian born Singer-Songwriter Patsy Thompson made her way to Texas, and back, and now West Coast audiences will only be the better for it.
Now they can experience her rich, moving voice, raw edged rough one moment, smooth and tender the next, always dear and soulful, in songs with catchy turns of phrases and such universal themes as love, loss, dreams, and partying your socks off!
Her sound is a textured blend of driving beat, growly blues with a bit of Canada's airy accent, with some Texas twang, molded by the influence of musicians she loves: Patsy Cline, Bonnie Raitt, Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, KoKo Taylor, Bob Seger, and Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson to name but a few.
With her sixth album, Fabulous Day, scheduled for a February 2020 release, this precursory first single, 'I Think About You' is a genuine musical gem of the highest order.
The upbeat Country/Americana Christmas song about not being able to be with the one you love over the holidays is right royally catchy and has just enough jangles and background bells to allow it to slide seamlessly into the holiday season.
Backed with the equally memorable 'Dreamin,' the gently twanging ballad combined with Thompson's delicious vocals makes this, to me, a righteous double A-Side.
The single is being released digitally throughout Canada and the USA, but Patsy has taken it all one glorious step further and pressed the track as a 7" vinyl single (of which I lovingly reviewed here today) and as a CD single.
