Heart Of Stone is SaraLee’s second album. This is a Rock’n’roll album with a modern sound aiming at a larger audience than the usual Rockabilly crowd. In that, SaraLee is not dissimilar to Imelda May. Heart Of stone covers a wide range of genres and styles like Rhythm’n’Blues, Diddley beat, Rock’n’roll, Rockabilly Boogie and even a country ballad featuring the one and only Lester Peabody of the Barnshakers on steel guitar.
The modern production and some arrangements could stop those who prefer their music played in a more traditional way. That said, the curious listener who’s not against a slight commercial edge to its Rock’n’roll will find plenty to enjoy here. The musicianship is very good and SaraLee’s vocal, despite some mannerisms, is quite powerful and enjoyable.
