Editors’ Notes

Long before the world took note of Joan Osborne, she'd been building a solid following as a committed blues singer. Her turn toward pop music was a brief detour in a career that's brought out the best in the blues. One listen to her take on John Mayall's "Broken Wings" is all the evidence needed to explain her ear and her understanding of the deep blues. Allen Toussaint's "Shoorah! Shoorah!," with Toussaint on piano, kicks up the joy at the other end of the spectrum. Muddy Waters' "I Want To Be Loved" turns up the flame. Slim Harpo's "Shake Your Hips" is equally a tribute to The Rolling Stones, who introduced the tune to rock audiences on their essential Exile on Main St.. Her road band is on fire throughout, with Jimmy Vivino directing the horns and Barbecue Bob Pomeroy adding incendiary harmonica to the obscure "Roll Like a Big Wheel." The production between Osborne and Jack Petruzzelli is nothing short of spectacular, and it's clear that as a singer Osborne loves this material deep in her soul.

Customer Reviews

Too hot for snakes

And that's really hot. I've enjoyed Joan's work with the Holmes Brothers, but was surprised by this album. It's one of the best so far this year. 'Shake Your Hips' sizzles like bacon on a really hot cast iron skillet.

Super!

This woman knows her way around a song. From delivery to the arrangements, it's all heavenly. She is totally at ease with these tracks and in her element. If anything download "the same love that made me laugh". You'll want more.

In her prime

this is so sweet and Joan is just so comfortable. Truly in her prime with these songs at this time in her career. Saw Joan at a free at noon show at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia that was broadcast over NPR and she did only songs from this album. I'm a fan but not huge, but this show and this album and this band and Joan so clearly in her total comfort zone was amazing. She just owns these songs. Can't recommend highly enough.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Singer Joan Osborne was born on July 8, 1962, in the town of Anchorage, Kentucky, but it wasn't until relocating to New York City in the early '90s (to study at NYU's film school) that she began to take a singing career seriously after performing Billie Holiday's classic "God Bless the Child" at a local bar's open-mike night. In addition to Holiday, Osborne looked to such legendary vocalists as Etta James and Ray Charles as role models, as the up-and-coming singer decided not to cater to major record...
