Shelby Lynne: Just a Little Lovin'
Buy! - (Lost Highway)
It’s no surprise this Alabama country-soul singer would want to pay tribute to Britain’s ‘60s queen of soul Dusty Springfield. Both favor vocal subtlety and restraint over showboating histrionics, and both rejuvenated their careers with a shot of Memphis soul. Still, Lynne doesn’t settle for karaoke versions of Springfield’s biggest hits on this loving tribute album. Instead, she frames the songs with spare, hushed arrangements that emphasize the intimacy of Springfield’s music. 1/17/2008 - Don Yates
