Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This CD is a collection of songs by Dusty Springfield that were close to Shelby's heart. She had wanted to do this record for a long time and she realizes the fruition with this 10 song set. Standouts include 'Anyone Who Had A Heart', 'The Book of Love', and 'Breakfast in Bed'. Universal/Lost Highway. 2008.

Amazon.com

It's a risky move for any singer to attempt a direct ascent on the towering peaks of Dusty Springfield's evergreen legacy. (Rolling Stone once called Dusty in Memphis the third most "essential" rock album by a woman.) Just a Little Lovin' achieves the unlikely: a tribute to an immortal artist which both glorifies its subject and elevates the worshipper kneeling at her altar. Lynne's 2001 breakthrough, I Am Shelby Lynne, was both utterly fresh and nostalgically infused with a Memphis-like spirit. Much of Just a Little Lovin' is as familiar as an old pair of shoes. Lynne's original contribution, "Pretend," fits snugly between the classics, but it's the loose, practically improvised vibe of this recording that breathes new life into Bacharach and David's "Anyone Who Had a Heart" and, especially, Randy Newman's "I Don't Want to Hear It Anymore." Genius producer Phil Ramone lends the entire collection the kind of intimacy he brought to Paul Simon and Billy Joel's most atmospheric 1970s recordings. Restrained instrumentation--often simply guitar, upright bass, a sprinkling of piano, and light percussion--turn even the teenage bubble-gum anthem "I Only Want to Be with You" into a sultry meditation. It's hard to imagine another recent album more successful in melding retro-reverence with contemporary moderation. The result arouses emotion even as it enchantingly relaxes. --Ben Heege

5.0 out of 5 stars Dusty Would Be Proud! January 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
There are two ways this CD could have gone, and thankfully it's not crap. She's taking on Ms. Springfield like a seasoned heartbroken champ (which of course she is). She does it the way it should be done; every song here is sparse, fully realized and void of emptiness.

The major difference between Springfield and Lynne is in delivery, while most of what Springfield does on record is almost a heartbreaking, soulful coo. Lynne's voice is strongly powerful. Songs such as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," with its acappella, slightly echoed, opening, tricks the ear as if it's going to break out into the loud ripping rendition that it always gets. But Lynne plays it down, turns up regret and conviction in her voice and it's now a country torch ballad.

"Breakfast in Bed" is still a sultry, slippery ode, but Shelby's vocals are so assured, turning the lyrics almost into a demand and it works.

The show-stopper is her take on "Anyone Who Had a Heart." She keeps this song just under a boil, a languid piano, and vocals just above a drawl; it's perfection .. she plays it soft until her voice just soars for a brief moment, before falling back down to heartache, truly showing off the complete vision of this album.

You can see what Lynne takes from her love of Springfield: both women were and still are under-appreciated vocalists who deserve bigger audiences. It takes guts to take on an artist's most definable material and Lynne doesn't flinch once!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quiet Stunner January 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
As one of Dusty Springfield's biggest fans, I was both excited about and afraid to hear what Shelby Lynne was going to do with some of the songs most identified with the Great Beehived One. It kind of worried me that Ms. Lynne was going to release a "stripped down" production. After all, Dusty is most identified with what she herself called those "big ballady things," huge, Italian-style production numbers with all the stops pulled out, and the singer at full throttle. On the other hand, it was encouraging to hear that Lynne was not trying to imitate Dusty or invade her territory. Dusty, after all, had turned in the definitive versions of these numbers so, according to Shelby, the job was to interpret the songs in her own way, and as a reminder to her listeners of Springfield's neglected catalog. Today, Dusty's music reaches an ever-widening circle of discerning listeners, and is being rediscovered by old fans and revealed to younger pop music lovers. Yet, for all the burnishing of Dusty's legend, she remains a woefully underexposed musician, often still relegated to the "Oldies" bin in CD stores. Unfortunately, this may because only a handful of her songs ever get heard and are, strangely, somewhat OVER-exposed. About a dozen of her biggest hits get endlessly recycled, while only her die-hard fans know the rest of her 300-plus-song library.

Perhaps the funny name, the cartoon make-up and hair, and the flamboyant ultra-feminine costumes did her in, and without the songwriting talent of say, Dolly Parton, she was not taken seriously. Critics have long sung Springfield's praises, but record sales never reflected her value as a singer, and as an artist who could capture the imagination of the masses. That's okay, of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shelby Loves Dusty February 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
From the cover photo, itself a homage to the classic 'Dusty in Memphis' album, this a great tribute to the songs of Dusty Springfield. Shelby strips the songs down to their minimum (with the help of legendary producer Phil Ramone) and shines. I was fortunate enough to see her and her band perform 9 of these songs live at Amoeba Music in Hollywood on the day of the CD's release, and they were even more intense - many goosebump moments!

She picks three of the songs from the 'Memphis' album - plus a bonus cut from the CD version, Tony Joe White's "Willie and Laura Mae Jones" (Tony's a friend and played on Shelby's last album), as well as several other songs made famous by Dusty, and one original "Pretend (You Love Me)". I was not familiar with Dusty's version of the Rascals tune "How Can I Be Sure" (a UK single) but have since gotten it, all three versions are great - Shelby's version was incredible live.

Most people in the USA are probably more familiar with Dionne Warwick's version of "Anyone Who Had a Heart" but Dusty's version was a UK 45 and is a stunner - and this song may be the highlight of this CD. Shelby sings with such understated passion that the song is a heart-breaker all over again.

Shelby's original "Pretend" is very much in the Dusty vein and is another quiet stunner. I never thought I would be grateful to Barry Manilow for anything, but it was his suggestion (they're neighbors in Palm Springs) that planted the seed for this amazing album.

I have followed Shelby Lynne's career since her 'Temptation' album back in the 90s and she continues to make amazing music. The music industry doesn't know quite what to make of her (witness her Grammy for 'Best New Artist' after more than a decade of recording) but talent will out in the long run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Shelby March 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Shelby Lynn in 2000 when "I Am Shelby Lynn" was released and got to see her intimate show upstairs at the Parasdiso in Amsterdam. The 50 or 60 people in the room were literally blown away by her performance, which was gutsy, raw and unforgettable, just like her album, I Am Shely Lynn. Since then I have eagerly awaited each of her new releases, (and her return to Holland which has yet to happen, unfortunately). Just a Little Lovin' is Shelby's no frills, stripped down interpretations of Dusty Springfields songs and her sultry, smokey and, thankfully, not over the top vocals and subtle production make them work so well. Bravo, Shelby Lynn! Dusty would be proud.
