In my opinion:
I was quite impressed with Jenny Oaks Baker when I first started listening to her Classic Rock Album. I grew up in a musical family. My two sisters, Cassie and Tiffany as well as my brother, Ryan all played violin. I played piano so I was honored to attend some of their recitals. Jenny proved to be an outstanding musician and I enjoyed listening to this album. The songs she chose to represent classic rock were right on the mark. I think my favorites were the Liverpool Suite, Sweet Child of Mine and Yesterday. I will definitely be listening to her other cds in the future. She has proven to be a very talented individual.
One of my readers will have a chance to win a copy of her Classic Rock Album.
