Natural Act

Artist - Author: 
Rita Coolidge

The final installment of the Kris & Rita "trilogy," this album was less country-oriented than the previous two; but a fine album none the less. It appears as if the impending divorce might have had an impact on the album as a whole. Not only do several of the song titles imply a failed love affair, but the cover photo itself seems somber in comparison to the more upbeat-looking covers of the previous two albums. Even the title of the album could be interpreted as keeping with this theme. The possibility that this was a concept album about the breakup only adds to its appeal. Kris and Rita were very obviously in love, even at this point, and the painful mixed emotions they are feeling over the divorce come through on this album; making it an irresistably personal document of their marriage and heartwrenching breakup. If you are a fan of either Kris or Rita or both, don't overlook this historically important--yet often forgotten--final collaboration.
