5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully melancholic, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crown Electric (Audio CD)
I dithered between giving this 4 stars or 5. But,on the third play, I succumbed to the beauty of this album. Like all of Kathryn's music it rewards most fully when given total attention - as it received on it's third play. The later tracks are perhaps even better than the first few,with 'Sequins' a lovely standout.
Is it the best album of her career? It's the most mature. But the best? For me,the magnificent 'Old Low light' beats it. But,then again,that album beats almost everything in my collection. Perhaps after a dozen plays,'Crown Electric' will be up there with it.
I am,obviously a big fan of Kathryn's music. Which,considering that my first love is 70's soul and Motown,perhaps indicates just how impressed I am by her music. I really shouldn't be! But,the cream has to rise to the top,doesn't it?
The warmest voice since Brook Benton,to continue the soul theme. His Platinum collection - celebrating 60 years of Atlantic records - is possibly the best cd this century. But, I digress...
To finish, I can only pose the question "Why on earth is this woman not better known and appreciated?!"
'Crown Electric' should be in your collection. Along with at least 3 of her other albums.
