Top Customer Reviews
Now, on her thirteenth studio album, she has laid down her songwriter's pen and recorded songs by Lennon and McCartney, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, among others. The two Dylan covers are superb with "Don't Think Twice" featuring honky tonk piano, fiddle and steel guitar, while "Everything Is Broken" has hot guitar, blistering harmonica and a swirling, blues infused organ. Kimmie's voice brings a new dimension to these time honoured favourites.
A change of tempo brings a tenderness to the sorrow of Neil Young's "Birds" and her sensitive reading is underpinned by a soft piano and haunting cello.
Along with Delbert McClinton she kicks up a storm with Jimmy Reed's "Shame, Shame, Shame" while Mark Knopfler's "Cannibal" with Marcia Ball is given a Cajun treatment that works well.
It's an eclectic selection with perennial favourites such as Lennon and McCartney's "Yesterday" and "A Little Help From My Friends" and "What A Wonderful World" (made famous by Louis Armstrong) shining like new light through old windows.
But it is with two lesser known songs - "Georgia Lee" by Tom Waits and "Adam's Song" by Rodney Crowell - that her ability to convey the deep emotion over the death of a child, grief, lost love and broken hearts is manifest. These are songs of subtle beauty and the angel voice of Kimmie Rhodes reads them with a simple grace.
Produced by her son, Gabriel Rhodes, this is an album that deserves greater recognition than it will probably get.
