Shelby Lynne

I have the new Shelby Lynne cover disc of songs recorded by Dusty Springfield. I think it is my favorite disc of the past 6 months at least. Others hear this?

She had a tragic childhood history as did her sister, Allison Moorer. Her pictures on the CD have a fairly cold stare which isn't the look of love. She looks to be a force to be recogned with. I really like the CD. I don't yet do vinyl. It is a bit bluesy and nostalgic. She plays a mean guitar on track 7. I felt it was well mastered and well recorded. I didn't feel that there was a sameness. It makes me want to hear more. I have played it for friends who are and are not audiophiles and they have all been impressed...even though they did not know her.
I thought the vocals sounded warm and intimate. The Absolute Sound in the March 2008 issue reviewed it and Neil Gader liked it. He said that she used a mic that was an ancient RCA 44 ribbon mic nicknamed "Frank's mic",giving it a vintage and elegant mood.
