Ricke Lee Jones - The Moon is Made of Gold


From the moment she first appeared in front of us on Saturday Night Live in 1979, Rickie Lee Jones has challenged her listeners and the establishment with an absorbing musical vision that defies border and classification. She rocked the culture of singer-song writerdom with her refusal to conform to the stayed and careful eloquence of the folk rock generation that came before her. Neither punk ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Ragged glory 22 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Please ignore some of the other reviews here, which seem to be by people who don't really like RLJ anyway. The connotation that these are somehow "bad performances" is simply wrong. While this might not be the number one place to start your RLJ collection (Evening Of My Best Day is my personal favourite), these stripped bare versions of classic songs performed by RLJ in all her ragged glory, is a fascinating and intimate listen from an artist who is never afraid to do exactly what she wants in the way she wants. Cover version have always been a part of her aesthetic, and this collection adds a valuable chapter. The understated accompaniments are both subtle and spot on to my ear. Think late Billie Holliday transposed to pop classics - yes, it really is that good.

4.0 out of 5 stars RLJ in stripped back acoustic mode 12 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a reworking of classic pop songs in the ultra relaxed Rickie Lee style. In no way a strident record and advise tweaking up the volume to take full advantage. For some the pace may be too slow but this gave her the room to extemporise on these classic songs. the perfect chill-sounds.

Reason to Believe is stunning. saw her in concert in Manchester last year. Quite a magical show, very intimate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devilishly Good Stuff 9 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
Her early career highlights notwithstanding Rickie Lee Jones' last studio
album, the consummately restrained 'Balm In Gilead' (2009) was, for me, one
of her finest contributions to the listening world. With her sixth decade
snapping hard at her heels this peerless performer has chosen to kick back
with an album of covers and it's a real treat to hear that inimitable voice
wrap itself around this well-chosen collection of iconic songs. There are
ten numbers in the set, including one ('Masterpiece') written for the project
by her collaborator Ben Harper. Ms Lee Jones' larynx remains in remarkable
shape; its fractured vulnerability was always one of her defining strengths
and it's a real joy to hear her idiosyncratic renditions of other songwriter's
work as a counterpoint to her own. The arrangements are weather-worn and
stripped down to the barest bones, the better to reveal their true character.

Take her rendition of The Rolling Stones' 'Sympathy For The Devil' : one can
almost imagine Lucifer himself curled up in a hard-backed chair by his hearth
reflecting with gloating pride on his many misdeeds! Her gravely delivery gives
the song a sense of raw immediacy which makes the hair bristle on your skin.
Her take on The Band's 'The Weight', on the other hand, captures this classic
composition's warm inner light. A gloriously simple but affecting performance.
Tim Hardin's 'Reason To Believe', too, gets a wonderfully bitter-sweet and
yearning interpretation, carried along by a mournful fiddle and acoustic guitar.
An old warhorse like 'St James Infirmary' comes up as fresh as a daisy and final
track, Donovan's timeless 'Catch The Wind', brings the album to a sublime close.

With 'The Devil You Know' Ms Lee Jones proves beyond doubt that she's still at
the top of her game. A seasoned little masterpiece to rank with her very best.

Highly Recommended.
