The recording sessions were electrifying, as the singer/songwriter tapped into her lifelong love of blues and R&B and unleashed her impassioned vocals.
Drawing from a voice the New York Times called "angelic ecstasy" and "sexual abandon," Joan Osborne created a special collection of some of her favorite classics, a personal tribute to the music she has long loved and drew inspiration from. With vocals that growl and soar, Osborne alternately cries out with heart-wrenching soul and foot-stomping grooves.
She personally selected the obscure gem "Roll Like A Big Wheel" from her own record collection and added rock n roll-fueled urgency to it. She also dug deep into John Mayall s work and came back with "Broken Wings," where her vocal performance draws both goose bumps and tears. The often overlooked Ike Turner-penned "Game of Love" was another treasure Osborne chose to record, and during the sessions an impromptu rendition of "Shake Your Hips" made its way onto the album.
Bring It On Home also includes tracks originally made famous by American blues masters such as Sonny Boy Williamson ("Bring it on Home"), Muddy Waters ("I Want to Be Loved"), as well as recordings originally released by some of the greatest R&B singers ever including Ray Charles ("I Don t Need No Doctor"), Al Green ("Rhymes") and Otis Redding ("Champagne and Wine").
Top Customer Reviews
On overall, Joan Osborne has grown in stature musically since the days of her mega-hit "One Of Us" in 80s, presents a great blues & soul compilation of songs in this new CD 'Bring It On Home' in stereo for extra enjoyment, a highly recommended CD listening.
Her first set of soul covers, 2002's How Sweet It Is, featured modern production that was at odds with the material's grit. Her second set, 2007's Breakfast in Bed, is the more direct antecedent to this new album, with funkier arrangements that seem to have been inspired by her terrific appearance in Standing in the Shadows of Motown. For her latest set of covers, Osborne's picked songs in which she hears the blues, going beyond the standard I-IV-V to find songs that connect to the emotion.Read more ›
