Biography

She started out singing in Chicago bars. Then, barely out of high school, Lucy Kaplansky took off for New York City. There she found a fertile community of songwriters and performers—Suzanne Vega, John Gorka, Bill Morrissey, Cliff Eberhardt, and others—where she fit right in. With a beautiful flair for harmony, Lucy was everyone’s favorite singing partner, but most often she ... Read more in Amazon's Lucy Kaplansky Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

Finally Lucy Kaplansky lets her own songs take center stage on a wonderful, provocative, and utterly memorable 10-song release. Recording only one cover (a sweet take on Steve Earle's "Somewhere Out There"), Kaplansky and husband Richard Litvin have ample space to examine the complexities of love (won, lost, or soon to be kicked out the door) and the challenges of life. Backed by a sterling core of musicians (including guitarist Larry Williams and backing vocalists Richard Shindell and John Gorka), Kaplansky's oddly pinched yet sumptuously full voice more than rises to the occasion. "Turn the Lights Back On" is the obvious crowd pleaser, but the best moment on this album is its quietest--"Just You Tonight," a spare, acoustic love song that echoes on long after it has finished. --Percy Keegan

I first heard Lucy on the Cry Cry Cry album with Dar Williams and Richard Shindell. When I saw Cry Cry Cry in concert Lucy played "Ten Year Night" and I knew that I had to have her CD. Her music is inspiring and fun to listen to. It makes me happy and I never tire of listening to her albums. After I bought "Ten Year Night" I also bought her other two albums... all three of them are marvelous. I told my roommates about her while I was home in Vermont for summer vacation and they went out and bought her CDs too. If you love Dar and Richard and the Nields, you will LOVE Lucy Kaplansky.

I purchase between 35 and 50 CDs a year. This latest offering from Lucy is the best total collection of songs I have heard this year. Rarely does an album go 10 for 10 on the quality of its contents. Ten Year Night does this. The first couple times through, I thought I knew which tracks would be my favorites, and which might get the forward button pushed occasionally. But after listening more, I have found that even the tracks that were initially too slow for me, have spread their sweetness all over me. Too bad this fantastic example of emotion, music and style is not widely known. Kaplansky would surely receive the Grammy for Album of the Year. On the other hand, being one in a smaller fanbase keeps the intimacy with the artist that much better.

Lucy is one of many excellent folk-country singer-songwriters to emerge on the American music scene in the nineties. In a crowded market, Lucy does not get the same level of recognition accorded to Lucinda Williams or Mary Chapin-Carpenter but Lucy is just as good as those two.
This classic album is a wonderful example of Lucy's skills as both singer and songwriter. It opens with the title track, about the tenth anniversary of a relationship. End of the day is about people led a contented but modest lifestyle before chasing the money, only to discover that they were better off materially but less satisfied with life. One good reason is about a woman asking her partner to choose between her and the bottle, knowing that he'd choose the bottle. Five in the morning is a song about a woman who leaves home while everybody is asleep, hoping to find a better life. Promise me is about being on the road and unable to establish a relationship. The remaining songs explore various aspects of love - the joys and the problems.
If you enjoy contemporary folk-country music, do not overlook Lucy Kaplansky. This was my first album of her music but it certainly won't be the last.

One of the many memorable phrases in this album is the phrase from the song "Ten Year Night" which says: "Open your eyes, and look at me." Buy this album, and open your soul and ears and listen to Lucy Kaplansky's blend of folk, country, rhythm and blues.. There is not a song on this album that you will want to skip with the fast forward button--it is that good. I saw her live in Monterey sing several songs from this album. She is incredibly sensuous on stage. Her sensuousness is evident in this album as well. After hearing this album, you will wish she was singing the lyrics to you personally. It should win a grammy.

The stunning, supple instrument that is Lucy Kaplansky's voice has long been an open secret in folk circles. Fortunately‹and justly‹Lucy's voice now carries well beyond the confines of that world's in-crowd. On Ten Year Night, her singular singing is even richer, more confident, entirely engaged in the business (and pleasure) of finding the emotional center of a song. To listen to Lucy sing is to gain a clear purchase on what real singing means. After hearing this record, you'll find it hard, if not impossible, to think of a more moving and perfect contemporary singing voice. Despite the fact that Lucy has now released three records containing her own songs (often written in collaboration with Rick Litvin), her voice has often been praised at the expense of due consideration for the writing. Ten Year Night will change all that. The songs on this record are remarkable, various and beautifully made. A telling indication of the level here is the fact that Lucy's cover of Steve Earle's "Somewhere Out There" is far from the best song on the album. The writing ranges far, from the compellingly elliptical "In a Child's Hands" (which sounds as if an inspired Crazy Horse, complete with swooping slide-work and a rhythm section working out with palpable intensity, is backing her up) to the poignant, fresh take on finding love in the title track with its visual clarity and perfect phrasing. Perhaps the most intriguing track is the dark and haunted "One Good Reason," a portrait of a life that's unravelled in a vacuum of resignation that has become for the protagonist a dessicating inevitability ("There's a line I've crossed somewhere/ I left the best of me back there").Read more ›

I added this disk to my Christmas list based only on a review in Red House Records. Lucky gamble. I highly recommend this album to anyone who enjoys good song writing, great lyrics, and excellent vocals.
