4.0 out of 5 stars The real Joss Stone, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a few patchy years if there is any justice this album will re-establish the lady as one of music's brightest talents. This is the sound of a mature and confident singer doing justice to some truly greta old sould songs.

In my opinion her vocal on JD Loudermilks "then you can tell me goodbye" is the best she has ever put down and shows just how greta a singer she can be. Another delight is hearing the guitar of the legendary Ernie Islay on most of the tracks

Wellcome back Ms Stone

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody SHOULD be talkin', 23 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Everybody's Talkin' (Audio CD)
about this magnificent band and this album. Been a fan of Susan Tedeschi for a long time and was lucky to see Derek Trucks in his days with Clapton.

If your streching the songs out you better be (a) highly musical and (b) do the covers justice

The title track is absolutely 10 star reconstruction of the song and Ms Tedeschi could be mistaken for early Bonnie Raitt, that's how good her vocal is. Darlin' be home soon is one of my all time favouirite Lovin Spoonful songs and a 10 minute version worried me but hey a very soulful vocal and some beautiful guitar work makes it one of the best covers I've heard.

End of the day you'll love it or hate it I suppose but this is one hell of a band and a truly great singer on top form

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Soul Not Blues just truly GREAT, 31 Mar 2012

This review is from: Let It Burn (Audio CD)
First up i haven't been a huge fan but this album is simply one of the most "soulful" things you'll hear all year. There are some greta cover versions/re workings (Ring of Fire is fantastic) but for me her version of one of Robbie Robertsons best songs - It makes no Difference" is simply light years better than any other and in it's own way is close to matching The Bands. A superb duet with Willima Bell brings back happy memories of the great mans best work. If you are in doubt about this album don't be it really is outstanding, i doubt I'll hear anything this good for the rest of the year. For an album close to 50mins in length there are very few duff moments

4.0 out of 5 stars Shouldn't trust your record company, 30 Dec 2011

This review is from: Apocalypso (Audio CD)
The album that the record company knocked back because there wasn't an "obvious single" and it wasn't commercial enough. Some of it morphed into All four One but now 30 years later Apoca;ypo is out there for us to judge - personally I think it is every bit as good as All 4 one and in places better - certainly WOULD have sold with some marketing and touring. Martha Davis was/is one of the best female vocalists and the band are S"£t hot

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 7 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bohemian (Audio CD)
This may be Ms Collin's finest album,or at least on a par with any of her others. Like a good wine her voice gets better (only Emmylou harris can compare for clarity and feeling). Her own songs are wonderful, particularily the tribute to her late mother and the closer a tribute to her time aropund big sur. With minimal instrumentation it's a beautiful warm piece of work. Oh and my god the lady still looks stunning after all these years and tribulations.

5.0 out of 5 stars WElcome back Ms Wright, 2 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Betty Wright: The Movie (Audio CD)
After ten long years one of the great soul voices is back with an absolute belter of an album. Matching a classic voice to modern sounds Betty has come up with an album that stands with her best and if there is any justice will walk off with a good few awards. The groove on the opening track is so reminisent of Pain on her Sevens CD you'd be forgiven for thinking they were recorded back to back BUY THIS

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB a great retrospective, 8 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At last a proper career retrospective of the magnificent Etta's recording life. One of the truly great singers of our time. She sings every song as if it was written for her. Many thanks to Hip-o for doing such a fine job on this package - also to Amazon as i was lucky enough to pre-order at a much better price! Long may etta continue, new album soon can't wait
