You won't find a warmer, more powerful and moving tribute to the City of New Orleans and its people and culture than this five-star, 13-track album that features some of the city's most revered artists. Young and old, the New Orleans Social Club members capture many facets of the Katrina tragedy while also celebrating in distinctive 'Nawlins styles the music that helped make American popular culture famous the world over. Nearly everything on this sumptuous collection of angry, compassionate, patriotic and hopeful sentiments are cover songs. But they are covers like you've never heard before in the hands of Cyrill and Ivan Neville, Marcia Ball in duet with Irma Thomas. Dr. John, Henry Butler, the subdudes and others. While Ivan Neville reworks Credence Clearwater's "Fortunate Son" into an even more sympathetic victim of an alienating bureaucratic system that underscores this democracy's appetite for war and domestic neglect, the Mighty Chariots of Fire let go a joyful gospel challenge to the nation in "991/2 Won't Do." But the political hue and cry that hangs over many of these tracks, including Dr. John's impromptu and melancholy reading of Fats Domino's "Walking to New Orleans," there are also some classic New Orleans music moments where engaging style, spirit and rhythm and nutthin' else rules the day. Just check Trombone Shorty's tasty "Hey Troy, Your Mama's Calling You," or The Sixth Ward All-Star Brass Band Revue whipping up a familiar medley of tunes as if it were a big pot of gumbo, and you know right then that the spirit of the city can never die, come hell or high water. Highly recommended. -- Martin Keller

The music is amazing, very much what New Orleans is about! Every song is deeply inspiring with a huge slice of that New Orleans sound. George Porter Jr's bass playing is outstanding as well as Leo Nocentelli on Guitar from the meters.. Raymond webber on drums and Ivan neville on organ round out the club all of them bring the funk!The collaborations are very nicely arranged so buy the album, and help sing us all back to NEW ORLEANS!!! See you at Jazz Fest, I'm commin home..

"We made a big ol' batch of gumbo and invited some of our favorite piano ticklers, street paraders, rhythm-and-blues singers, Mardi Gras Indians, troubadours and funkateers to celebrate the indomitable spirit of New Orleans. So grab a plate, fill it up and FEED YOUR SOUL"- The New Orleans Social Club inviting their fans to this new CD to raise money for New Orleans.

"Sing Me back Home", from the New Orleans Social Club, has a cast that came together after the Katrina disaster. The super group, featuring Neville Brother Ivan and Meter Leo Nocentelli--lay down piano-heavy Rock and Blues with such musicians as Irma Thomas, Dr. John, Cyril Neville, and the Subdudes, among others, bring the sorrow, anger, hope, and soul of the city's people. These musicians know precisely what it means to miss New Orleans, and they're singing, as the title suggests, to ensure that their city's spirit comes home. Grammy producers and friends to music, Leo Sacks and Ray Bardani gathered a dream team of their Delta-born musicians for a collection of songs that sing with and to the soul. This CD was recorded in just a week.

Cyril Neville's "This is My Country" and you feel the urgency and love for his city.

Ivan Neville sings the John Forgery's "Fortunate Son," The flavor of New Orleans comes alive with this rendtion.

"Look Up" is a stirring spiritual rendition by Irma Thomas and Marcia Ball.

Dr John sings "Walking To New Orleans", sorting the pace to the return.

Trombone Shorty's spirited "Hey Troy, Your Mama's Calling You{ begs for foot tappin and hand clappin'.

"Loving You Is On My Mind" by the entire group is an emotionally laden song.

"Somewhere" by Henry Butler is a particularly affecting song.

I had the opportunity to hear the artists involved perform at an Austin City Limits taping a couple of weeks ago. The song choices are inspired and the performances are deeply felt. Listening to the music reminds you of everything New Orleanians have lost, but also affirms that these are no ordinary folk. If anyone can bring back the magic of the Big Easy, it's the NOLA Social Club and everyone who embraces their music. What binds us together -- culture, music, food -- will bring us back. Or at least that seems to be the spirit in which this album was recorded. It's a special album. Give it a listen.

The flood of New Orleans has had one positive side effect; the cultural heritage of the city has been put firmly on the map again. For the connoisseurs New Orleans has always been there as one of the most exciting cities musically speaking. Now the world is paying attention as well. Few cities could commit so many musicians to its rebuilding as the Big Easy. Recently even Bruce Springsteen dedicated one of his songs entirely to the city of New Orleans, its people and president Bystander.

This recent release is dedicated to the city and its artist. By calling themselves the New Orleans Social Club they refer to Ry Cooder's excellent Buena Vista releases of Havana music. This project certainly reaches that same level of quality. Anybody who's anything in New Orleans is here or at least referred to. The material sounds inspired and is wonderfully produced.

One can't help but notice how in the wake of the onslaught a lot of the material here gets a political undertone. 99 1/2 Won't Do by the Mighty Chariots of Fire sounds like a call for full justice rather than full commitment in a relationship. Fortunate Son done by Ivan Neville reminds us again how the rich of New Orleans were a lot safer from the storm than the poor. Where Y'At? could be interpreted as an indictment to the Bush administration that left the city to suffer on its own. These musicians are welcome to remind us to that atrocity any day.

Even though a travel ticket to actually Bring me Back Home did not arrive with the CD, I am absolutely certain that its absence is not as important as the wonderful quality of music created by these top drawer musicians who, all in their own right, have paid their dues to that medium called music. Lots of chops in the CD!! The CD fits perfectly in my player and when I actually do that, a light illuminates and the music just begins all by itself. How do they do that stuff. It is amazing. I have a friend who doesn't have a light on his but I think it's just broken. Shuklia Osbordfurd Libly would have been proud to have been involved in such a project. Now there's a singer if I ever heard one.

Being a former resident near New Orleans for 40 years, I always loved the music of that city. Since retiring to the Philippines, it is even more appreciated now. The message of "Sing Me Back Home" can act as a rallying cry to those that left after Katrina. Both the artists and the songs were selected to portray the vast culture of New Orleans. The CD is truly a musical gumbo of styles, and there is something in the pot for everybody.
