Cover Story: Shelby Lynne
WOW. She's back! Shelby Lynne, singer/songwriter of one of the greatest songs of all time (Killin' Kind) has grown out her hair and recorded a Dusty Springfield tribute album! This is big news, as Shelby is one of the best female singers alive - her vocals are no bullshit, all honesty.
Called Just A Little Lovin' (and due on January 28), the CD was produced by Phil Ramone and will include 1. Just A Little Lovin', 2. Anyone Who Had A Heart, 3. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, 4. I Only Want To Be With You, 5. The Look Of Love, 6. Breakfast In Bed, 7. Willie And Lauramae Jones, 8. I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore. 9. Pretend, and 10. How Can I Be Sure.
And did I mention whose idea this album was? Barry Manilow. True story. Hear samples at Shelby's myspace

If I Were Smart
Shelby's best album is called I Am Shelby Lynne but she does have a Hits Collection. How about that album cover above? I'd like a vinyl version please.
