Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Jukebox is a sure sign that the Cat Power we once knew–-the reluctant performer, too shy to get onstage without a bellyful of whiskey–-is dead and buried. Best understood as a sort of mix of two previous albums, 2006’s The Greatest--a real coming of age record, lush and powerful, recorded with some of the greats of Memphis soul–-and 2000’s sparse set of reinterpretations The Covers Record, Jukebox finds an assured, husky-voiced Chan paying tribute to some of the songs that inspired her, backed by her new ensemble, the Dirty Delta Blues band. This is by no means a predictable set, however: the opening "New York, New York" is reinterpreted as a sultry, smouldering blues number, fulsome in instrumentation but stark in its lack of show; while James Brown’s broiling Live at the Apollo cut "Lost Someone" is pared back into a swaying lover’s exhortation led along on jazzy drums. The picks veer towards the classic rock end of the spectrum--Dylan, Janis Joplin, Hank Williams, Joni Mitchell–-but there seems little urge here to gain some novelty laughs from a sudden flash of recognition. Rather, Marshall seems to dig right into the heart of the lyrics, looking for aching hearts and emotional epiphanies. It's worth a dime or two of anyone’s money. –-Louis Pattison

Format: Audio CD
The cover version has unfortunately become much maligned over the years. Whereas bands were once judged by how well they could perform certain blues, R&B, Lennon/McCartney or Dylan songs and could gain kudos from picking up early on an up and coming songwriting talent, the rise of the singer/songwriter (and the extra profits from the publishing royalties) has meant the proliferation of home-grown material to the near total exclusion of pre-existing songs.

Thankfully, Cat Power, though with a proven pedigree as an accomplished songwriter, notably on her previous album of original songs, The Greatest, has always peppered her live appearances and recording sessions with songs that she has felt a connection with, regardless of who wrote them, and began a whole album of them a decade ago, The Covers Record, released in 2000.

This album was conceived as a sequel, and was originally going to be called Covers 2 (and still is, on the CD Text of my copy at least). Its final title Jukebox still modestly places the emphasis on the song rather than the singer, but its major difference from The Covers Record, which was mostly Cat Power on her own, is the presence of a band, the Dirty Delta Blues Band, featuring major players including Judah Bauer from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Jim White from the Dirty Three. The sound of the band, fleshed out on some tracks by guests of the calibre of Mabon Hodges (an integral part of The Greatest) and Spooner Oldham, session veterans from Memphis and Muscle Shoals respectively, is not a million miles from that on The Greatest, though there is a deliberate ragged informality in the proceedings here that sets it apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing transformation 24 Jan. 2008
By J. Keegan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first saw Cat Power in the Fall of 1996 in a small, half-filled, smokey now-defunct nightclub in Seattle that was owned by Peter Buck of REM's ex-wife. She played an insecure and frightened and very moving set of tracks from her first record, "What Would the Community Think?" She spoke very little to the audience, and looked a little bit like she was performing on the Moon. In fact, the whole show sort of felt that way. Fortunately she still managed to display her talents that evening, and as a number of us lined up to purchase the CD following the show, there was unanimous agreement that this girl had potential. Twelve years later, its remarkable to note the transformation which has occured with this artist. Cat Power has ridden her remarkable talent, and unique perspective on life right to the top of the game. And while the acclaimed "Greatest" was clearly indicative of the hard-earned courage and masterfulness finally possessed by the singer-songwriter adopted from NYC's indie rock scene into the Adult-Oriented Album radio format, "Jukebox" makes a more powerful statement. On this, her latest album focused mainly on covers of her favorite influences, Cat Power reaches a level better described as devestating. One is prone to smiling on your first couple listens as she works her magic into your heart as usual, only this time, not so much asking you to welcome it, but ramming it into you. She demonstrates an impressive culmination of fortitude and soul that arrives best through the type of battle-scarred experience that she has had. A veritable music warrior for years, Cat Power is now an all-star working her way toward the hall-of-fame. PS - the best 2 tracks may even be her own "Metal Heart" and "Song to Bobby." Get it and get ready to love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars the old and the new 1 Feb. 2008
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The album to compare this to is her first covers album The Covers Record; that was from 2000, and the young singer has grown and changed a lot since then. Her stunningly stark, almost gothic (but spare) setting of some familiar and lesser known songs was raw and powerful then. Now she's working with experienced musicians, and is more experienced herself, and the sound is warmer, more assured, more rock and blues oriented. I like the new disc fine, but only a few tracks really stand out: a new version of "Metal Heart" that is moody and acoustic, and her love song to Aretha Franklin, whom you can really cite as an influence on her current retro-rock sound. Chan Marshall is feeling her Southern Soul roots.

The point of this review, however, is to say that if you're a fan of her earlier albums, be sure you get this deluxe version with the extra E.P., because it's actually better than the main album. Here you find the Patsy Cline classic "She's Got You," but Chan's delivery makes even Patsy's version sound happy in comparison, plus an epic and meandering and devastating version of "Angelitos Negros." The EP has an overall downbeat vibe that recalls the stripped down and minimal Cat Power of old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the deluxe edition 17 Feb. 2008
By J. S. Winston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
That's right indie kids, Chan is less depressed and therefore able to express a greater range of emotion, in music that will likely appeal to more people. And that, of course, makes the music inferior to stuff that only you and your hipster friends appreciate--I mean, what the hell's the point of listening to something that doesn't make you feel like the coolest kids in the dorm? Alright, enough sarcasm. This may be Cat Power's best album yet, with its trippy tortured version of "Blue" and the original "Song for Bobby" which just might have Mr. Zimmerman seeking a restraining order. The real point of this review, however, is to point out that the songs on the bonus disc in the Deluxe Edition are NOT the usual "bonus" crap that was rightfully left off of (or not even considered for) the actual album. So, it's the one to get, especially considering that, last time I looked, the Deluxe Edition was actually selling at a lower price than the non-deluxe version (and even if that's changed, it's worth whatever extra couple of bucks makes up the difference).

5.0 out of 5 stars Downbeat and exciting... 23 Jan. 2008
By Musiclover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Chan Marshall wins again! Cat Power first came to my attention in 2006 with the release of "The Greatest"... and believe me I really felt "The Greatest" was the greatest. Now comes "Jukebox" and again Chan Marshall is won me over.

"Jukebox" is what I call jazz and blues for today's generation of music lovers. This album is dark and downbeat with shimmering pulses of excitement. From beginning to end each song captures you and keeps you listening.

The album opens with a understated yet vaguely bombastic cover of "New York, New York" which Chan calls "New York". Her voice is soothing as she sings "start spreading the news". This is "NY,NY" like I've never heard it before. While others merely have copied the original, Chan takes the song and gives it a new life and makes it completely her own.

Ramblin' (Wo)man" is Chan's take on Hank Williams' "Ramblin' Man" again she wins and makes even this classic her own.

Chan Marshall's voice, as understated as it is, has a great presence. Vocally Chan is not in the league as singers such as Nina Simone, Karen Carpenter, Annie Lennox or Aretha Franklin, though Chan possesses a charm all her own. She has her own sound and style which is inimitable and for that alone Chan is one of today's greatest vocal stylists. Her voice carries a gruff yet smooth melancholic confidence. She has a raw intimacy that nobody else on today's music scene can quite match.

At this early stage my favorite track is "Don't Explain" which has long been a Billie Holiday classic. Chan takes this blues staple and completely turns it around while retaining the song's underlying mournful blues feel. Chan's performance of this song, unique as it is, is every bit as effective as Billie Holiday's. Billie had her style and Chan has her own way of presenting jazz and blues to a society of music listeners waiting for something new and freshly exciting. Cat Power (Chan Marshall) fills the bill and succeeds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relax and enjoy the "ride." 20 Jan. 2013
By Wolfgang Muzak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This physically slim little album by Cat Power has TWO CDs in it, and it's easy to overlook the second, shorter recording. This is a cover album, and Cat Power masters each song in her uniquely breathy, soulful way. Of particular enjoyment are "Ramblin' (Woman)," a cover of Hank Williams' "Ramblin' Man," a delicate version of Joni Mitchell's "Blue," and "Silver Stallion," written by Lee Clayton. On "Silver Stallion," Ms. Power gently inhaled this listener; and you might find yourself, as I did, hanging on her every, oh-so-soft pronunciation of the word "ride." (There's a terrific, live, acoustic version of this song on YouTube -- with accompaniment by Ms. Power's two stellar guitarists, and a great pair of full-length gloves).

That said, I can't quite give this recording five stars. It's a cover album, after all, and perhaps some songs should best be left UNcovered. And the leadoff track, "New York, New York," is suddenly over before Ms. Power has settled into it. But there's a lot to like on "Jukebox." So, relax...and enjoy the "ride."
