Colleen Peterson "Beginning To Feel Like Home" (Capitol, 1977)
Hey, I'd never heard of her before, either, but this soulful Canadian had a nice, bluesy style, that sort of funky crossover that folks were into back in the '70s. She wasn't the greatest singer, but this is a strong album nonetheless, with a good backing band that included Dick Feller (of all folks!) on guitar, as well as Randy Scruggs and Lloyd Green providing some solid steel work. Interesting song selection, too, with tunes by Rusty Wier, Charlie Rich, Jesse Winchester and Mississippi John Hurt (!), as well as a couple of songs written by Peterson herself. Not the most amazing record ever, but I'm still glad I found a copy...
