  • Kings of Wyoming (Community 3) 1989 

Comely if amateurish, this New York trio led by Community 3 prexy/producer Albert Garzon (guitar, piano, vocals, production) plays gentle folk-pop that goes one for eight on the group’s brief album. Singing lead (with Garzon’s harmonies adding a warm undercurrent) on “Janelle,” bassist Cathy Crane’s pretty high voice focuses the rudimentary arrangement and covers the unexceptional playing. The remaining tracks, however, suffer to varying degrees from her uncertain pitch and/or Garzon’s plain voice.
