Shelby Lynne : Just A Little Lovin’
I'll guess I've done all I can do; It's really true. I'm lost in you; It's over.« So true, Shelby Lynne, so true. Lost, that is, in the effervescence of a skilled singer-songwriter, as comfortable with a contemporary standard from Bacharach and David as her own torchy, Nashville-hued melodies. The lyric above, from "Pretend" written by Lynne herself, appears on Lynne's stirring, empathetic tribute to the late British singer Dusty Springfield — Lynne's 2008 album "Just A Little Lovin'". And now on 200-gram vinyl comes the definitive reissue of that landmark classic from Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings.
Van Morrison – Pay The Devil
Pay the Devil is a new country set from the legenday Van Morrison. It is comprised of 15 tracks; three of these are originals and 12 are covers of some of Morrison's favourite classic country songs, including "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Things Have Gone to Pieces" and "Big Blue Diamonds." In 1962, Ray Charles, one of Morrison's biggest influences recorded the monumental Modern Sounds In country & Western Music. At the time the genre jump seemed risky, but Charles proved that a great artist could make it work if he worked with great songs. Morrison, who has successfully recorded jazz, rock, R&B, blues, Celtic, skiffle and more, proves that theory to be valid. His distinctive voice melds seamlessly with these classics written by songwriting masters such as Hank Williams, Webb Pierce, Merle Kilgore, Rodney Crowell and Leon Payne.
