Fabulous tribute; wonderful songs,
This review is from: River: The Joni Letters (Audio CD)
When the magnificent Ian Shaw collection of Joni Mitchell songs "Drawn to all things" appeared a couple of years ago, I thought the definitive set of Joni covers was now in place and that there was nothing more to say on the subject. However, it is a tribute to the quality of the writing that this cd works so well - that, and the fact that you have a top drawer set of musicians playing, with great taste and discretion, music they clearly adore.
Whoever came up with the idea of Tina Turner singing "Edith and the Kingpin" deserves a big medal; it works perfectly. Tina Turner brings a world-weariness to this terrific song and its as if we're looking at the scene through a different woman's eyes.
An excellent collection, go on, treat yourself!
