Editors’ Notes

Atlanta-based musician Michelle Malone is what's known as a lifer. She was signed to a major label back in the late '80s with her band Drag the River, and now—no matter what her commercial or critical fortunes—she soldiers on, making music because it's what she was born to do. "Other Girls"—the opening track of her 14th studio album, Day 2—contemplates how much easier it'd have been if she'd gotten married, had children, and lived the quiet life. But she knows it isn't in her being and that "the grass ain't greener, just a different color." Coproducer Shawn Mullins, a noted musician himself, refused to do more than add backing vocals to Malone's musical talents, preferring to let Malone and her stellar band of Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones), Randall Bramblett, Phil Skipper, Tom Ryan, and others get the job done as naturally as possible. From the sweaty ballad "Marlboro Man" to the full-on groove of "Wasted on You" (with its touch of Keith Richards in the guitars), Malone is an experienced veteran whose lyrics have been lived a thousand times over.

Customer Reviews

Strong Songs and It Rocks

Michele Malone has been around the block and she has given us a wonderful album to talk about it.

On a record like this, the songs are the driver for me, but I need to call attention to the strength of Michele's voice and guitar playing - both her instruments sing beautifully, with great care given to how each best fits each song.

As to the songs, we get a mix of bouncing blues and rockers, heartfelt confessionals, and interesting mixes that don't easy fit into any particular slot. My personal choices are Day 2 - a clear-eyed and unsparing look at heartbreak; Marlboro Man - a touching song of connecting with her father; and Chicken Lickin' Boogie - good dirty fun. However, every track here has its substantial pleasures and rewards close listening.

Highly recommended.

Day 2

Awesome album.
A real gem full of heart and soul

Love, love, love it

I just love all of Michelle's music and this album is no exception. Each song tells its own story and Michelle delivers that story beautifully. I can't even pick a favorite because I love them all. I am always listening to this CD and get so many comments when other people hear it ranging from "This music is awesome, who is this I need to get this CD" to "Ah, Michelle Malone, I love her!!!" I just love turning other people on to Michelle's music. I highly recommend this album and all of Michelle's previous albums. Her music is timeless and will always be relative. Keep rockin' it Michelle! :)
