Rickie Lee Jones Flying Cowboys on Gold CD from Audio Fidelity
Mystical, Bohemian: Rickie Lee Jones Pairs With Steely Dan's Walter Becker on Scintillating 1989 Set
A supremely talented songwriter with a creative knack for telling musical tales using vivid characters and lush musical arrangements, Rickie Lee Jones ups the ante on Flying Cowboys, which shares much of the playful, childlike charm of her eponymous debut via a wealth of themes and musical styles.
Originally released in 1989, the album, Jones' first in five years, maintains her reputation for singer-songwriter excellence. The set is distinguished by the fine production of Steely Dan's Walter Becker, and features backing from Scottish trio the Blue Nite, as well as some of the best studio musicians in the world. The album includes a stirring cover of Gerry and the Pacemakers' "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying" and the indelible hit "Satellites." The sheer musicality of the vocals and harmonies couples with the poetic, deep lyrics and yields a truly incredible work of art.
