Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Peace, Love & BBQ features some of the most stirring performances of Marcia's career. Singing the praises of simple virtues in the funky title track, working the Crescent City strut of 'Party Town' or coming to grips with the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in the deeply moving ballad 'Where Do You Go?' Marcia galvanizes this record with soul-touching vocals and her always killer piano playing plus Dr. John and Tracy Nelson guest. This 2008 release is Marcia's first new studio album in five years and poised to follow in the footsteps of her previous Alligator studio releases. After 10 critically acclaimed albums, national television and radio appearances, Marcia Ball is one of the most popular and beloved artists in all of American roots music.

Ball is a consummate pro--a killer pianist, a great singer and songwriter. Powerful. Righteous -- Billboard

Bayou boogie has a queen and her name is Marcia Ball -- The New Orleans Times Picayune

Marcia Ball is back with her first studio album in several years, and it is easily one of her strongest efforts since her 1978 debut album, Circuit Queen. Back in 1977, I heard Marcia do a guest turn on a live album by the Texas Playboys. Shortly thereafter, I took a chance on her first record when I found it in an out-of-print bin, almost by accident, and took it home. I was stunned, and have remained hooked on Her Tallness (as she is affectionately known to her fans) ever since. As far as I'm concerned, the fact that Circuit Queen has been out-of-print for thirty years is one of the great shames of the recording industry, and I have been waiting for Capitol Records to re-release it on CD since the digital format was invented. However, trooper that she is, Marcia has moved on, and has continued to evolve as both a singer and a power-house performer of amazing energy and vitality, consistently producing album after album of rollicking honky-tonk, New Orleans second-line soul, contemporary country and a touch of rhythm and blues. Like her musical soul-mates, Tracy Nelson and Irma Thomas, Marcia has proven herself again and again as a dazzling performer with a glorious gift for picking and writing exceptional material. Having seen Marcia perform live a number of times, I am constantly amazed by the high level of energy she exudes on stage, and her bouncy piano and distinctive voice carry over very well to each of her studio efforts, never failing to satisfy. Peace, Love & BBQ is no exception. Marcia's phrasing, delivery and wonderfully spirited piano playing have matured to the point where her tireless, energetic style appears almost effortless.Read more ›

One of my greatest pleasures is discovering a new artist whose music powerfully connects with me. Well, Marcia Ball is not a new artist: only new to me. I picked up her album by sheer luck in Waterloo Music on a long-looked-forward-to trip to Austin. It is one of the most amazing CDs I've heard in years. Party Town, Watermelon Time, Married Life, and Right Back In It are pure, unadulterated fun. Falling Back in Love With You is the sexiest piece of music I've heard since Dusty Springfield sang Son of a Preacher Man. There are moments on Ride It Out that could make you cry, and moments on Miracle in Knoxville that summon the ghost of Robert Johnson. There isn't a single dud on this album. I just can't wait to hear her back catalog.

This is a first rate CD by Marcia--admittedly my fave contemporary artist. If "Where Do You Go" dosen't move you emotionally you must be dead! Marcia is the most soulful voice I have ever heard in decades of music listening--and that's the idea--in a now world of cookie cutter singers and musicians Marcia Ball is a unique expressive vibrant talent-I have played her CD's for years for people and have dragged them to see Marcia in person and I never have a negative response! why Marcia isn't even more well known has always been beyond me--

Yet another great CD from Marcia Ball, actually one of her best. I've seen her live in concert several times over the years, most recently this past summer. At that time, she included most of "Peace, Love & BBQ" in her show & had much of the crowd up dancing for most of the night.Glad to see it was included in the list of Grammy nominees for best contemporary blues album, along w/ Irma Thomas, Dr. John, Solomon Burke & Taj Mahal. Looks like the blues Grammy is likely to go to either a New Orleans or New Orleans-friendly recording artist. Actually, it'll be a tough decision; I like all of the CD's nominated in that category this year.

I found this to be a diverse, but consistently well crafted music CD. Marcia Ball has a great voice, terrific keyboard skills and plays with a talented band of musicians.

Excellent CD, not her very best in my opinion but it's excellent in that there isn't a single tune on the CD you don't want to hear again. I just dislike CD's where there's a song on it that you just wonder why it ever got recorded. Very good, still a Marcia Ball fan!

Loved this album; great songs, really good backup band and that NO musical flavor sung with a "marcia ball" style. If you like her tunes you will really enjoy this one.

A Marcia Ball fan. It is more of the same southern blues, Marcia style.
