Shelby Lynne Just a Little Lovin' on LP from Lost Highway
A Pure, Modern, Unadulterated Audiophile Classic
Lynne's Tribute to Dusty Springfield Done in a Classy, Throwback Manner
No pop singer has as pure and expressive a voice as Shelby Lynne. Her music has always been stained with conflict and sadness and, obviously, doesn't lend itself to mass audiences. This is a sweetly rendered set of songs featuring Lynne’s lovely, scarred vocal interpretations of the music of one of her heroes, Dusty Springfield.
Lynne and her producer Phil Ramone do right by the songs in stripping them down to their bare bones. Just a Little Lovin' is a marvel, Lynne’s intimate reading really makes you feel that indeed, a small amount of comfort and connection can indeed make a cruel, indifferent world manageable.
"Dusty Springfield was a soulful singer. You can't ever fill her shoes. So I just set out to sing songs we all want to hear again. The road map I followed when cutting these, was the one she made years ago. It was easy. I just sang and let the songs do the work. I'm so glad I did. Dusty inspired it all". -- Shelby Lynne, talking about the recording of the album
