The surprise with Wild Rose, the only female country group on a major label whose members provide their own instrumentation, is that they pick as well as they sing. Led by Wanda Vick and Pamela Gadd, whose hard Southern accent knows no one-syllable word, the band offers a kicky program of country-rock, bluegrass, Texas swing, Louisiana spice, honky-tonk, and jazzy ”dawg” music (as on one of Breaking New Ground‘s best cuts, ”Wild Rose”). Little of this is combined into a cohesive sound, but whatever Wild Rose is, it’s never boring. B
