The wonderful Dana Fuchs is probably still best known for her brilliant performance as (Sexy) Sadie in "Across The Universe". Which is quite a shame as her musical output definitely could deserve wider regocnition.
Like Beth Hart Dana is a true heiress of Janis Joplin. A beautiful, intense voice but also an intense presence, singing with both heart and vagina.
Her band is tight and really swinging, the soloes spot on, everything sounding live in the studio. And covering lots of styles: country rock, blues rock, metal and not least soul. And it's on the soul numbers Dana really shines, bringing tears to this old man's eyes with her fantastic cover of "I've Been Loving You Too Long".
The feel of the album reminds me of "Exile On Main St." and should really have a wide appeal to all rock-blues-soul fans.
