Orville is keeping country music alive and well in Manhattan. The title tune to his new CD is a fine, classic-sounding hillbilly bopper with stuttering steel and brushed drums. Elsewhere, he offers the fine ballad "Before You Loved Me," the rockabilly rave-up "Callin' Janie," the honky tonkin' "Don't Say You Love Me" and the sentimental "Rich In Love." One constant is that he's hard-core Country.
