Any Second Street
Songs that celebrate the underdog, ranging from quiet folk balads to resounding harmony-filled anthems.
"One hint of a singer-songwriter's maturation is the company she keeps.
Linda Sharar's sophomore effort, ``Any Second Street,'' boasts a whole crew of Boston's finest musicians: guitarist Duke Levine (of Mary Chapin Carpenter's band), drummer Dave Mattacks (Fairport Convention), bassists Mike Rivard and Richard Gates, and singers Catie Curtis and Christopher Williams, among others.
The album, graced by an acute awareness of the fragility of life, is dedicated to two songwriters who died far too early: Alexis Shepard and Don Brody." Folk/Blues/by Daniel Gewertz, Boston Herald, Friday, July 6, 2001
