Kim Richey
The Collection
(Lost Highway)
Kim Richey falls under the ignored midwestern singer-songwriter genre. A best-of compilation shows that Richey is a fine songwriter who deserves more press than she gets, but it is also easy to see why she hasn't been smashing down any doors. A rich texture of folk and country flows throughout, but there isn't an idea on this disc that the listener hasn't already heard a million times before. The newer songs toward the end of the collection shows that her work is getting stronger, and maybe there will be something in the future that will be worth taking notice of.
