Editors’ Notes

For an eight-song compilation, Back to Black: B-Sides plays with the cohesive flow of a short, full-length album. But it also shows that the late Amy Winehouse’s influences ran a bit deeper than revealed on both 2003’s Frank and 2006’s Back to Black. She opens covering “Valerie” by British band the Zutons, turning their distorted indie-rock tune into something that sounds straight out of the mid-‘60s Motown vaults. She follows by turning Sam Cooke’s “Cupid” into a vintage-sounding ska tune. Keeping with the ska theme, Winehouse then tears into Toots & The Maytals’ “Monkey Man.” “Some Unholy War” is one of two Winehouse-penned songs here. It’s a slow-burning soul dirge with a brushed snare drum providing a moody backdrop over steadily picked arpeggios as she sings about supporting those fighting an unsupportable war. Her “Love Is a Losing Game” closes with a raw, stripped-down beauty.

Give Me More And Then Some

Excellent. If you like Amy, you'll love this smattering of tasty tidbits to snack on while we wait for the next album. Enjoy!

5 Stars is just for "Valerie"

Okay, I haven't gotten any tracks off of this little ep, but I've had a downloaded copy of "Valerie" for about a year now, and it's easily one of my most often played singles. I really just adore this version, which Amy Winehouse recorded on BBC's Radio 1 Live Lounge, apparently with a couple of the guys from the Dap-kings (btw, Tom Brenneck is the MAN on guitar!), and its just really laid back and mellow. Cool, dude, way cool.

Much can be said about the late Amy Winehouse, one of the U.K.'s flagship vocalists during the 2000s. The British press and tabloids seemed to focus on her rowdy behavior, heavy consumption of alcohol, and tragic end, but fans and critics alike embraced her rugged charm, brash sense of humor, and distinctively soulful and jazzy vocals. Her platinum-selling breakthrough album, Frank (2003), elicited comparisons ranging from Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan to Macy Gray and Lauryn Hill. Interestingly...
