Editorial Reviews

Bring It On Home is Osborne s first album of hand-picked vintage blues and soul songs, a collection that fans have long been asking for and Osborne herself delighted in making.

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Bring It On Home also includes tracks originally made famous by American blues masters such as Sonny Boy Williamson ("Bring it on Home"), Muddy Waters ("I Want to Be Loved"), as well as recordings originally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").

Five INTENSE Stars! Joan Osborne serves up passionate personalized performances, co-produced with the multi-talented guitarist/producer Jack Petruzelli! Covering songs from the likes of Muddy Waters, Bill Withers, Al Green, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Ike Turner, and John Mayall, the powerhouse singer/songwriter returns with a wonderful set of blues, soul, and R&B masterworks, delivered with her personal flair. With her road band that includes keyboardist Keith Cotton, guitarist Andrew Carrillo, drummer Aaron Comess, and Richard Hammond on bass, she is joined by Jack Petruzelli on guitar, renowned pianist/composer Allen Toussaint on piano, "Barbecue" Bob Pomeroy on harmonica, and a blazing horn section, as the intensity meter is pegged most of this recording session. And Ms Osborne gives us a pleasing flow from song to song. All performances are uniformly excellent and the 'best of the best' begins with a fiery rendition of the Ashford/Simpson classic "I Don't Need No Doctor". She speeds up the tempo a tad as she reinvigorates John Mayall's "Broken Wings". "I Want To Be Loved" has a heartbroken Joan riding the beat, the harmonica, and the chorus, in a truly infectious performance. The bluesy "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh", with an hilarious, accusing background chorus that had me humming along, has Joan delivering the lowdown message. Allen Toussaint contributes both his Betty Wright hit "Shoo-rah! Shoo-rah!" and a 'down-home' piano solo to a hot Osborne treatment that is spiced up with punchy horn accents. And perhaps best of all, a smoking "Shake Your Hips" is authentic-sounding with the harmonica and driving 'rim-shot' drum beats pushing a very intense, soulful Osborne performance that is simply marvelous.Read more ›

Singer-songwriter Joan Osborne is back with a great collection of blues & soul music in this new CD release titled 'Bring It On Home'. The CD (12 tracks) is a compilation of songs that have inspired her (mainly covers of classics : blues & soul) over the years & she was very happy to record & present these to her fans. The overall sound is an amazing inspirational bluesy sound with great horns (saxophone & harmonica), melody & her soulful vocals. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Game Of Love", the overlooked Ike Turner classic in which she delivers great melody & vocals, "Broken Wings", a John Mayall classic, a slow-tempo track with an amazing guitar/piano combination, "I Want To Be Loved", a Muddy Waters' classic, has great horns/guitar/piano combination & "Champagne And Wine", Otis Reddings' soul classic. Great tracks include "Bring It On Home", a Sonny Boy Williamson classic & title track for this album, "Roll Like A Big Wheel", from her own repertiore (great harmonica), "Shoorah! Shoorah!", a 'rocky' cover version of this 70s classic, "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh", "Shake Your Hips", "I'm Qualified" & "Rhymes", the up-tempo track, a classic from Al Green. Okay track is the gospely jazz track "I Don't Need No Doctor", a classic by Ray Charles.

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.

Joan Osborne's 1995 smash, "One of Us," may be the best thing that ever happened to her commercial fortunes, but her inability to follow-up its chart-topping success is more likely the best thing that ever happened to her artistry. In the wake of the triple-platinum Relish, Osborne receded into touring, social activism, musical study and guest appearances, taking five years to issue a follow-up that couldn't possibly repeat the success of her major label debut. But in failing to sell millions of copies, Righteous Love freed Osborne from the expectations of another lightning strike, and set her on a path led by musical muses. She explored classic and original soul, recorded country and Americana, and even reunited with the team that had produced Relish.

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.
