Two great voices, a guitar, and a dobro is all it takes for BettySoo and Doug Cox to knock it out of the park with their latest CD, Across the Borderline: Lie to Me. BettySoo's voice is strong, feminine, and mesmerizing, and Doug Cox's guitar riffs are a perfect complement, soulful, tight, and clear. The CD a set of well chosen covers that highlight the duo's strengths and range from old-school Doug Sahm to more modern fare like Jane Siberry. Highlights for me are "Lie To Me," and "Boxcars."
