There are few major label debuts as long in the making as this understated gem. After three decades of raising a family, co-founding the Bridge School for special-needs children, and singing back-up on worldwide tours--all with her legendary husband, Neil--Pegi Young had her coming-out moment in 2006 when she shared center stage at the Ryman Auditorium with Neil and Emmylou Harris on the stirring renditions of "Four Strong Winds" and "Comes A Time." After years in the background as the better half of the ultimate baby-boomer troubadour, Pegi was in the spotlight.
On PEGI YOUNG, she turns in a set of songs that walk a beautifully subtle line between innocence and experience--she wrote them in her 20s and waited 30 years before committing them to tape. Backed by many of the same ace musicians who have logged time with her husband, PEGI YOUNG plays like the musical memoirs of the ultimate Laurel Canyon survivor. Songs such as "Heterosexual Masses" and the Jimmy Buffett cover, "When the Wildlife Betrays Me," all reflect on a life of constant motion and excitement, while "Hold On" and the Spooner Oldham classic "I'm Not Through Loving You Yet" reveal the joys and difficulties of a longterm monogamous relationship. The object of her affection makes an appearance or two--with an undeniably recognizable harmonica line here or guitar riff here there, plus an electric sitar debut on "Love Like Water"--but Neil's presence is definitely a sidenote to the real story here: the affecting combination of Pegi's wide-eyed songs with her wisdom-of-age delivery.
Rolling Stone (p.71) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Pegi's recent songs, such as 'Fake' and 'Sometimes,' are as simple and direct in their promises and worries as her husband's..."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Sometimes Like A River' ticks all the right country ballad boxes...while 'The Key To Love' recalls the hazy laziness of early Rickie Lee Jones."
