Product Description

2007 issue of the beloved Canadian singer/songwriter's first exclusive collection of cover songs. While Arden has recorded numerous covers before, this set is entirely made up of songs written by other people. The first single from the album is "Bring The Boys Home", a song originally made famous by Freda Payne (better known for her hit "Band Of Gold") that actually made it into the US Top 15. Arden also puts her personal stamp on "Peace Train", "Love Is A Battlefield", "You're So Vain", "Downtown", "Son Of A Preacher Man" and more!

Perfectly titled Uncover Me is a collection of nine cover songs and one original that allows Arden to show how emotion-driven music has influenced her along the way. The disc kicks off with "Bring the Boys Home" (originally a 1971 anti-Vietnam war song) that is especially moving with its refrain, "bring 'em back alive." The '70s hit "Peace Train" by Yusuf Islam (a.k.a. Cat Stevens) also delivers another powerful message in a gentle melody. True to Arden's musical nature, there are a handful of melancholic tracks, including the aptly wistful version of Janis Ian's "At Seventeen" and a moving, traditional take on the Carpenters' "Solitaire." The disc's one original, "Counterfeit Heart" is a definite standout of the slower numbers, one that seems awash with a '40s croon and ache. That track aside, the strongest parts of the CD come in the form of the sassy female-fronted melodies that bring out the best of Arden's style. Carly Simon's "You're So Vain," Pat Benetar's "Love Is a Battlefield," and Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" each allow Arden to infuse a little extra zest and oomph in her vocals. The only downside? That in choosing the songs, Arden didn't pick a number with a little more bite to it, such as Heart's "Crazy on You" or Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation," which would have allowed her to shake off the softness, if only for a while. --Denise Sheppard

She has one of those voices that truly touches you down deep in the soul.
Chip Downer
Things don't go well for "You're So Vain" or "Downtown" and I don't know that "Son of a Preacher Man" should ever be touched.
R. M. Ettinger
This could be a great introduction to this artist for someone who has never heard her amazing voice.

Prime Cuts: Solitaire, Downtown, You're So Vain

To designate Arden as a one-hit wonder with her emotionally ravaging top 20 smash "Insensitive" is a caricature. Across the border on the 49th parallel, this chanteuse has been amassed with 8 Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys) and she was also the receipt of the esteemed 2000 Prairie Awards Songwriter of the Year. However, for "Uncover Me," her ninth studio album, Arden has decided to give her writing kilt a rest. Save for one newly penned tune, this album finds Arden covering a wide array of music from Cat Stevens to the Carpenters to Pat Benator to Carly Simon to Pertula Clark to Dusty Springfield. Naturally such an adventurous excursion lend itself to being one of the most vocally challenging endeavors Arden has had ever committed on record. Unable to divorce herself totally from the originals, she does vocally import Karen Carpenter's vulnerability, Carly Simon's spitefulness, and her own skeptical bite, making Arden a much richer composite vocalist.

If a song could cut the heart like a stiletto it has to be the Carpenters' "Solitaire." A probable biography of Karen Carpenter's vacuous quest for true love, this piano-based ballad finds Arden cribbing Carpenter's forlorn and despairing purrs with great effect. Pertula Clark's "Downtown," though traffics with a carefree disposition, guises an ache of loneliness where the song's protagonist tries to forget her pain vis-à-vis window shopping. Arden's new composition "Counterfeit Heart," though not as melodramatic as the aforementioned tracks, is still a heart wrenching ballad of misplaced trust and broken promises to which Arden conveys with mastery.

I'm a huge fan of the traditional "tortured, melancholoy, dark & brooding" Jann Arden but this is equally as wonderful as her old stuff. Of course, she could sing the phone book and I would love that too! She has one of those voices that truly touches you down deep in the soul.

This album has a lot of great interpretations of some classic tunes...and Jann does a great job of breaking through the traditional format to put her own thoughts and feelings behind the words and lyrics we already know by heart.

Kudos to you Jann! Nice job!! May the thoughts and prayers of your fans heal your heart as you have healed ours time and time again with your voice. I will keep you in my prayers, always.

Cover songs are just that versions of songs artist enjoyed in their life. Much like Shawn Colvins covers Cd which included Every Little thing she does is Magic; Janns' Uncover Me CD allows one to enjoy some favorite music on one CD, certainly not amateur but produced nicely. I had a chance to meet and perform with Janis Ian while taping an ABC pilot. At 17 Jann seems to personally inflect some pain that every young person goes through and outgrows... I love it and Janis Ian I am sure is respectfully flattered. "BRING THE BOYS HOME" speaks for itself how timely!
