I don't quite understand why Madeline Peyroux waited eight years and then put out two incredible CD's in the same month, but that's what she did. For some reason, Got You On My Mind hasn't gotten any publicity (maybe because it's on a small label)- but in my opinion, its every bit as good a CD as "Careless Love"
"Got You" is a more unusual album in that it has some instrumental tracks (featuring Wiliam Gallison, who plays magnificent harmonica) and has a very varied programme of material. On the seven songs she sings, Madeline sounds more raw and natural on this CD- almost as if it was recorded live, although the audio qualty is wonderful. One could say it feels more "honest".
My favorite track is "Got You On My Mind" which features Madeline and William singing together with a bluesy slide guitar and a terrific beat. Madeline sings especially beautifully on "This is Heaven to me". Strangely enough, she has a different version of this song on "Careless Love" but of the two I prefer this one.
I also loved a version of "Flambee Montalbanese" which is a beautifully authentic take on a famous French musette tune. Wonderful arrangement. This CD definitely takes you on a journey. Bon Voyage!
