    Unplugged and wonderful!

    The MLT Duo Sessions proves that great songs, in the hands of two marvelous singers/musicians, don’t need much to make them extremely enjoyable and uplifting to the spirit. Like all of your recordings, this makes me smile and changes my grumpy mood to pleasure at hearing such gorgeous singing and expert playing. The only other group that I can say that about is The Beatles, and that’s not flattery, just truth. It’s hard to pick out just 2 or three faves but I’ll say, “All About Being In Love”, “Sweet Lorraine”, “Both Sides Now” and “Tonight You Belong To Me” make my smile even wider. Love it!

      I like all your cover albums. Consistently good standard, and I’ve ejoyed the covers from the variety of inspirations, that collectively reinforce your talent. Look forward to the next….. in the meantime your voices echo round an arts centre in the middle of france.

    Loving it all

    I can’t add much to all the great reviews below, particularly Jacki’s which says it all for each track. You know when you get a song that plays over and over in your head and you can’t get rid of it? Well, in my case I now get that with all these songs and it is not a problem! If you love Mona and Lisa, or if you are new to them, I defy you not to love this album.

    Just in time.

    Tom Westley (verified owner)

    I was wondering what to listen to whilst cutting out yet another guitar body, when the doorbell went. On the doorstep was a parcel and inside the parcel was “The Duo Sessions”. Must be fate I thought, obvious what to listen to now.
    Bit of a problem though, I kept stopping to listen to the music. So instead of taking the usual 20 minutes it took an hour and a bit.
    Definitely worth the extra time and can’t wait for the next one.
    Keep it up ladies and more original songs please.

    The best cover album you have made !!

    Ari Raki (verified owner)

    I love all your cover albums but this I love the most. The intimate sound of two guitars and those lovely voices is really wonderful. I listen album mostly at late nights when here in Finland is not so dark at this time of year. The are chosen very well and what´s best your own songs fits so well with those classics. all the songs and versions are fine but if I´m forced to name my favorites they would be “It Ain´t Me Babe”, Both Sides Now”, “Wish You Were Here” and “Here Comes The Sun”. Excellent album !!

    All Hail The Stellar Duo Sessions Album CD !!!!

    Jacki Hopper (verified owner)

    Wow …!!!!…. I knew I was in for a humdinger dandy music treat, when I purchased this … Beyond stoked, and then some…
    The artwork deprecation on the front inside and back of CD cover, is creative brilliance in itself….whimsical, quirky, eye catching, an added Bonus.

    Now onto the CD itself:

    Though a few songs off of here, I will admit was not quite familiar with or not at all, but happy to hear MLT’s take, while others were like old friends reunited with me. This particular showcasing of a more simplistic , raw fresh approach to the songs allows the harmonies and instrumentation, as well as arrangements to really come strongly throughout, blending each song it’s own story to convey, though still reminiscent of the original, Team MLT add that layer of their intertwining musical gifts to yet, take it a tad further to ensure their own spin on things . It cultivates a whole new appreciation, of classic 60s, with nourishment of tunes to take root , to grow…

    1) Good Day Sunshine~ Beatles…. The uniqueness of the vocals really puts oomph into this one, and the accompaniment of the perfect instrumentation truly sunshine appeal, how you can genuinely smile while singing this .

    2) The Kids Are Alright~ The Who …This is a song I was not familiar with, or if I was had not heard it in ages, but enjoyed the velocity of which the song was paced at, and absolute stellar rhythmic beat to it, kudos on percussion, drums, guitars on this … Indeed , Alright…to my musical ears.!!

    3) It Ain’t Me Babe~Bob Dylan… You made Bob proud with this rendition, and the harmonica/bluesharp flavoring, added a nice zip and zing, and vocal wise, it sounded most pleasing.

    4) Close To You~MLT Original off Orange CD… I loved this off Orange and even in acoustic form it still resonates just as powerful, the lyrics, vocalizations, the delivery of song, played instrumentally, so beautifully enriching.

    5) Tonight You Belong To Me~Bill Rose/Lee David… This fun song, just screamed for Team MLT to cover, it sounds like you’re back in time, in a flapper club or supper club somewhere, the gals in their beautiful dresses, hairstyles, etc (reminiscent to what was worn in their video for the cover of Maxwell Hammer), they perfected the groove for this song, capturing its essences spot on, an oldie but MLTBuzzLuvGroovy Goody !!

    6) Both Sides Now~Joni Mitchell… Wow to cover an Canadian Folk Legend icon such as Joni, and with this song, Joni, you should be in awe by this version, I know I sure am… Not exactly a straight forward choice to do with the up and down of low and high notes, etc. , yet Mona and Lisa pull it off exquisitely so, with amazing conviction, sends goosebumps going while listening…Yes, in utter awe by this.

    7) Imagine~John Lennon…A universal song of John’s that’s been covered by many, played in all circumstances, etc. , since he came out with it when he had. For me , MLT’s version picks up where John left off as it just effectively stokes our souls with its lyrics reverberated for all to listen, think, do…Wonderfully crafted, Well done !!

    8) All About Falling In Love~MLT Original from their “When We’re Together” CD Album… This heartfelt song, perfect for a wedding , wedding anniversary, Valentine’s Day, fills one up with emotions, lovingly conveyed, and the richness of the harmonies here offers that extra , and the simplicity of music, really touches one when heard.

    9) Tired of Waiting For You~ The Kinks…Yet another unfamiliar tune for me but really enthusiastically was drawn to it, because if how it was done, with the Team MLT Groovy Music Magic. Loved the musicianship offerings on this, you have to tap toes, tap a chair, sing, along with them, you can’t help it, it’s that good !!

    10) Baby’s In Black~Beatles…Something just bizarre occurs whenever MLT do Beatles…it’s like they’re reliving the actual Beatles era, channeling that era energy through themselves for us to enjoy, and rightfully so, again scored big thumbs up with this performance, You betcha .

    11) Pretty Flamingo~ Manfred Man.. Again another unfamiliar to me but loved it from getgo of hearing it, and having that harmonica/bluesharp essence just deepened the vibe to a most stellar level, spectacular… WooHoo !!

    12) Sweet Lorraine ~MLT Original from their ” Orange” CD…A quirky, whimsical winner here, delightfully done, and even acoustically, still hits that home run, and entices the imagination to visualize what’s going on as it’s being sung, awesome stuff.

    13) I’m Looking Through You~ Beatles… Once more another one, unfamiliar to me but a welcoming to my ears, the style played, vocal arrangements, instrumentation all blends together to have a music recipe treat, that all can enjoy a piece of.

    14) Wish You Here~ Pink Floyd… Now this song, MLT’s take, for that all that’s going on in our world, this is most fitting. A classic of it’s own PF merit, when it was MLT’s turn to tackle and reveal what happened…Utter poignancy with utmost genuineness to come from such a superb song choice and calibre of effort put forth. Much Appreciated !!

    15) Here Comes The Sun~Beatles…started off the CDcwith a Sun song, only proper to end off with another…this was a fine choice to choose to try. I’ve heard some good cover attempts, such as Denny Doherty , and proud to say, this take ranks up there with Denny’s in my view, Give yourselves a round of applause….Yippee !!

    Overall , this fab collection of splendid cover song varieties, is a complete worthwhile investment for your music library, sing alongable, air guitar and drumming/percussion , air harmonica/bluesharping, feel good, Positivity Inducing. Thankyou for having the foresight to put this together for all to enjoy. When you set your creative music goals on a project, you go all out and beyond to produce a worthy, fulfilling CD of music that generations can enjoy !! I am but truly, MLTBuzzLuvGroovified … Perfection…5 *****Rating, 100% Lifetime Guarantee !!!!
