Editors’ Notes

Back in the early ‘90s, Suzy Bogguss brightened country radio with her folksy, Western-slanted sound. Of late, she’s tacked in a jazz-pop direction, as evidenced by 2007’s Sweet Danger, and her honeyed vocal tone and caressing delivery make her a natural for the stripped-down acoustic settings found on these tracks. Backed by a small combo, Bogguss sings with an easy intimacy suggesting an after-hours gig at an uptown lounge. For an artist typically more sunny than sultry, she turns in a convincingly sensuous performance on “Chain Lover,” and tunes like “The Bus Ride” and the title track strike the right mood of hopeful discovery in their depictions of dawning romance. “Baby July” offers a sensitive childhood tale, while “It’s Not Gonna Happen Today” details a slowly-collapsing relationship. Most of the tunes here simmer in the midtempo range, though “Right Back Into The Feeling” adds a little blues-rock spark to the mix. The most surprising moment is Suzy’s treatment of Chicago’s “If You Leave Me Now” as a soft-lit nightclub ballad. These heartfelt and quietly wise songs are some of Bogguss’ strongest work to date.

Customer Reviews

Suzy's done it again!

I'm thrilled this album has finally been released! I've been hearing Suzy perform selections (teasers) live for the past year or so and my anticipation for this release had been growing and I was really looking forward to it to hear the other tracks. The wait has been worth it it. This album does not disappoint. For diehard Suzy Bogguss fans like my husband and me, I hope you enjoy this new work of Suzy's as much as we do. As always, Suzy does a fabulous job with the instrumental arrangement and the lyrics are moving, especially with "In Heaven" -- I will never be able to keep a dry eye during that song! Thank you, Suzy, for another great album!!!

Great Job!

Please don't label "Sweet Danger" as Country. There isn't a fiddle or steel guitar in it, anywhere, but the effort is still a great piece of Pop artistry. Suzy absolutely nails every track with perfect timing and delivery. This album deserves a wider listening than it will receive by being pigeonholed as Country. Great Job, Girl!


Sounds delightful....I'm not a country fan at all, but I like the way Suzy Bogguss brought this together....has that urban edge without losing the foundational country sound. Kinda reminds me of Linda Ronstandt.......I'm so intrigued, I think I'll have to pick this one up on my next trip to Best Buy!
