Dianne's 1988 release, originally on Olivia's Second Wave division, finally finds its way back into in-print land in 2016, yay! This powerful, gutsy singer began her career probably a good half-century ago, performing with icons such as Tracy Nelson and Linda Ronstadt. Years ago Ladyslipper carried some of her earlier recordings, before her entry into the Women's Music universe (now also re-released on CD)- in our opinion she outdoes her previous efforts by a long shot here.
The power she harnesses in her voice is the first thing which will take your breath away: it booms, it wails, it burns, it belts her mixture of blues, country, gospel, r&b and ballads. About half her repertoire is original (she's an excellent lyricist); the balance is perfectly chosen. Includes Built For Comfort, Heaven Bound, Everything To Me. Backup vocals on one song by Tracy Nelson; outstanding production by Dianne herself. Highly recommended!
