Her best since "Careless Love"
on June 18, 2011
Simply put, this is her best since "Careless Love."
She makes the three covers (McCartney's "Martha, My Dear," Dylan's "I Threw It All Away" and Robert Johnson's "Love In Vain") her own, and her own originals are great.
Instrumentally, this is an earthier, rootsier (is that a word?) CD than her previous CDs.
There's a couple of times when I flash on Bonnie Raitt's music, circa "Nick Of Time," but I can't exactly say why.
Her vocals are as good -if not better- than anything she's done previously.
The whole thing is brimming with realized talent and self-confidence.
