As a songwriter Matraca Berg was at the cornerstone of the 90's women in country music movement penning career songs for some of country music's superstars. She is arguably the finest female writer in Music City and was recognised in 2008 when she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
THE DREAMING FIELDS marks her first solo recording in 14 years, unless you count a limited pre-release edition of SOUTH OF HEAVEN which was made available during Matraca's UK tour with Wine, Women & Song (WW&S) in 2009. The last official album is now something of a lost in ozone gem, SUNDAY MORNING TO SATURDAY NIGHT, from 1997.

Her last label Rising Tide folded in March 1998 at the time of her second single and she took a step back to be with her family and continue to write and demo songs. She had always wanted to release another album when the time was right. It may well though have been prompted by encouragement and a friendly nudge from long-time friend Gretchen Peters and member of the WW&S trio who told her: "I'm gonna get your skinny butt on the road if it's the last thing I do." The trouble was Matraca needed some money spinning merchandise for the gigs.

Berg co-writes on 10 of the tracks and self pens the other. The soulful shuffle 'If I Had Wings' written with country siren and accomplished singer/songwriter Jessi Alexander hides some dark and hidden truths. As a rednecks wife she longs for escape from an abusive relationship and wishes she could untie her dreams and head for Memphis. It's the words that hurt more than the bruises and the emptiness she feels inside is killing her. And it painfully ends in typical country style: We all knew sooner or later/ It was gonna be me or him.

Matraca Berg has long been one of the foremost songwriters in the country field, but she also has a great voice, so to be able to get my hands on her first album for seven years is brilliant. If you're a country fan, you'll already know some of the songs off the album, such as Trisha Yearwood doing the title track, but hearing the haunting way that the woman who wrote it translates her deep feeling to the song lifts it to a far higher plane. A good mixture of songs, including the comical 'Your Husband's Cheating On Us', a classic anti-war song in 'South Of Heaven', but surely if Radio 2 took up 'A Cold, Rainy Morning In London In June' it would make Matraca a household name. All in all, a must for anyone who loves listening to a great singer/songwriter doing great songs.

It has been a very long time coming, but this is a really, really good album! Matraca's clear, beautiful voice conveys emotion like no other. I was lucky enough to see her in concert a few years ago with Suzy Bogguss and Gretchen Peters as part of the "Wine, Women & Song" tour ... it was fantastic, so if you are a fan of either of those other two (more prolific) ladies, you will love Matraca. Even then, she promised a new album was on its way, but, to be honest, it has been so long, i had all but given up hope! Her voice literally brings me out in goosebumps, and there is not a weak song on this fabulous album. Not an album to dance to, more one to really listen to, preferably with a nice glass of something chilled and some good company (even if it's your own)!! My album of 2011 so far ... and at this point, i can't really imagine anything else coming close!!

There isn't a track on the album I don't like, usually their are one or two tracks which on an album I would miss, but not on this one and for the price well worth down loading.
