Editors’ Notes

Named after a special road in her hometown of Leavenworth, Kan. (and also in Kansas City)—and the former street of her record label—4th Street Feeling features everything that's made Etheridge a major musical star since the late '80s. The production by Jacquire King (and Steve Booker on "Be Real" and the title track) is lean and mean, putting Etheridge's soulful vocals up front and bringing her road band in for some studio chemistry. The entire sound is tight and funky, as if the group were playing live in a room. The title tune brings forth the sound of '70s soul, with a Fender Rhodes matching the dry and punchy drum track and leaving plenty of room for Etheridge to emote, which she does with refreshing restraint. Throughout, the songwriting is smart and reflective, and Etheridge sounds musically invested. (She played all the guitars.) "Shout Now" smokes a vintage blues. "Be Real" evokes the spirit of '50s rockabilly with its slapback guitar. "A Sacred Heart" climbs toward '70s hard rock. The deluxe edition features the essential "The Beating of Your Heart" and two additional tracks.

Customer Reviews

not love at first listen

Being a Melissa lover for over 20 years , I tried to like it but I just can't . Not one song appeals to me on this album , not one that has even gotten a second playback. Sorry, dissapointed .....


I own every single thing Melissa has put out, have listened to her for years, and have seen her over half a dozen times....
So, I think I can qualify myself as a "Fan"....
Sadly, nothing on this new disc works....
Seems to have no "theme". No toe-tapping melody, nothing to sing-a-long to.
Just kind of tired and boring.
SORRY to all out there, but NOT her best effort....


Now this is the fabulous woman I saw at New George's in San Rafael, CA in 1988!

Sounds, like she found her heart and soul again………made my day.

Melissa Etheridge became one of the most popular recording artists of the '90s due to her mixture of confessional lyrics, pop-based folk-rock, and raspy, Janis Joplin/Rod Stewart-esque vocals. But the road to stardom was not all smooth sailing for Etheridge as she debated behind the scenes whether or not to disclose to the public that she was gay early on in her career. Born May 29, 1961, in Leavenworth, Kansas, Etheridge first picked up the guitar at the age of eight and began penning her own songs...
