Now and Then (1996)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Lead Performance: Shenandoah; Genre: Country

What distinguishes the Muscle Shoals, Ala., group Shenandoah is the soulful, straight-to-the-heart singing of Marty Raybon and songs that beautifully capture the rites of passage in Small Town, USA. Now and Then amounts to a best-of set, rerecorded for a new label, plus five new tracks. Of those, ''Deeper Than That'' scores as a first-rate sensitive-male ballad — an abiding staple in the band's surprisingly classic repertoire.
