Artist: Mark Brine Album: “Fortunes - the Best of Mark Brine” CD Review:
The photo on the back cover is priceless and sums up the CD. It's confident, wise, a little silver around the edges, and totally real. Mark Brine is simply a talented hard working man who’s very good at what he does.
What he does is write and perform timeless songs in the country genre. They are heartfelt in their writing and flawless in their delivery. These could be a lesser-known tracks from Hank Williams of Johnny Cash but they still sound great today. They aren’t even close to their freshness date.
“Fortunes” is actually a compilation of previous CD’s. It’s a great sampler of Brine’s work over his career and is extremely likely to make country fans go compile each of the CD’s individually for their collections.
