Product Description

Amazon.com

The Neville Brothers are a New Orleans institution. Their voices glide freely and harmonize into a rich texture. For Yellow Moon, they enlisted the help of producer Daniel Lanois to meld their voices and rhythms with his swampy dreamscapes. The percussion is subtle, the guitars melt into the background, and the voices puncture the placid night sky, as if providing the soundtrack to an old western. Two protest-era Dylan songs ("With God on Our Side" and "The Ballad of Hollis Brown") are recast as modern anthems for spiritual reconciliation. The Sam Cooke classic "A Change is Gonna Come" remains an envied promise, while the original material (the title track; "Sister Rosa," about Rosa Parks) is among their finest. Not a return to form, but rather a welcome break from tradition. --Rob O'Connor

I loved this album from the first time I heard it.

Several of the songs are "message" songs, inluding great covers of Sam Cooke and Bob Dylan songs.

Hard to find old music that has good sound quality.

The Neville Brothers are an American Institution, and at least in my opinion, this CD is their best work. Aaron Neville has one of the most instantly-recognizable, and best, voices in pop music.
The Nevilles are unique in the many influences that can be heard in their music - Carribean/Reggae, Cajun, African, rock, even country and folk. On this outing, they get some NASTY rhythms going (title tune, "Fire and Brimstone," "Wild Injuns") - crank it up and GO! They also perform several "social commentary" songs - "Sister Rosa" is a tribute to Rosa Parks, who refused to give her bus seat to a white man. "With God on our Side" is about people justifying their lack of humanity by (falsely) claiming to aligned with God. "Ballad of Hollis Brown," written by Bob Dylan, is truly haunting, the story of a man who feels so desperate in his inability to care for his family that he kills them to ease their pain.
This recording is an emotional roller coaster.
If you are a seasoned Neville Brothers fan, I assume this CD is already part of your collection; if not, you could do much worse than this as an introduction.

Five stars doesn't even come close. Nothing makes me reach for the volume knob like "Yellow Moon". As one would expect, it's deeply funky. But there's another side to it that's ghostly, wistful, beautiful.
The record companies just don't know what to do with bands like the Nevilles; they seem to see the band as some cheesy New Orleans party band. The Nevilles are far, far more than that, and nothing has ever captured it like "Yellow Moon". Produced by Daniel Lanois during his residency in New Orleans, who saw them for what they really are: a living connection to the past, with threads of all the amazing stages of development in New Orleans music, from Congo Square straight back to Africa. His eerie, atmospheric production style has never had a better match. A stunning work, and possibly my favorite album of all time.
Millions of people visit New Orleans, but I'm not sure how many people truly "get" New Orleans. New Orleans is more than just Bourbon St. It's a place of magic and mystery, of ghosts and history, and it got under my skin like no place ever has. What an amazing accomplishment to capture this on record as Lanois has on Yellow Moon.

I had the pleasure to get up close and person with Aaron Neville when he sang for us at a New Orleans Navy base. Believe me it's overwhelming! This beautiful, angelic voice comes from a very BIG, muscular man. The Neville brothers have always been one of my favorite groups. This is one talented family. I got this CD recently when I heard it being played at a Barnes & Noble store. I could hardly keep my feel still when I heard "Yellow Moon," and bought the CD immediately. Terrific harmony, vocals and music that are an absolute joy. I only have one problem...I can't play it when I'm driving! I just get too caught up in it when I hear "Yellow Moon," because my feet want to go. Each selection has New Orleans spice, like a delicious gumbo.

I've vacationed in New Orleans a handful of times, and nobody lives and breathes music more than this town. Nashville comes, close, but you're not going to walk down a street there and see somebody singing in the middle of the street just because they feel like it. In New Orleans this is not an uncommon occurrance. When Grammy time comes along, they also keep close tabs on how the local acts do, which I've not seen done so closely in any other city.
In this musically rich environmment, the Neville Brothers rule. But local dominance does not necessarily translate to nationwide commercial success. The band is not starving, and Aarron got some individual nationwide fame, but the brothers as a whole act have not recieved the commercial success many feel they deserve.
This album came the closest to getting them this recognition. It's a wonderful compilation of original recordings and songs borrowed from other artists that give it a commercial likeablility while holding on to the sound of New Orleans.
This work is as good as it gets when it comes to blending a commercial sound without losing your roots. The work takes you on a good tour of what the music is like in that part of the country. You get the high-spirited songs like "Yellow Moon", "Fire and Brimstone" and "Wild Injuns" that show that these folks can throw a musical party as good as anybody on the planet. But it also gets into some pretty heavy moods, which include some social statements.
An essential album for those that follow New Orleans music, and a great intro for those that want to see what it's all about.

This is a typically fine album by these New Orleans legends. It contains a good mix of originals and cover songs. Several of the songs are "message" songs, inluding great covers of Sam Cooke and Bob Dylan songs. Another great cover is the Carter Family's "Will the Circle Be Unbroken". This is an all-around solid album, and fans of the Brothers should enjoy it.

Format: Audio CD
When people say Neville Brothers, the first thing that comes to mind is New Orleans. While they will always be linked with the city, their music stretches far beyond the city limits. The album has a social conscious to it with group covering two Bob Dylan songs "With God On Our Side" & "Ballad Of Hollis Brown", a tribute to Rosa Parks in "Sister Rosa", the Sam Cooke spiritual "A Change Is Gonna Come" and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "Will The Circle Be Unbroken". That being said, the band is from the Crescent City and that funky New Orleans vibe permeates the album. They show off their Bayou roots on the spooky title cut and the album's closer, the jumpy "Wild Injuns". "My Blood" is a song about their family unity and it's that unity that makes the Neville Brothers such the special band that they are. Check out Yellow Moon and you will get a flavor of new Orleans and so much more.
