RICKIE LEE JONES
the devil you know
a haunting, sparse album with jones' voice in a fragile, almost brittle state as she commands & reinvents beloved songs from the classic rock canon.
from the rolling stones’ 'sympathy for the devil' & 'play with fire', neil young's 'only love can break your heart', tim hardin's 'reason to believe', van morrison's 'comfort you' to the band’s 'the weight', jones' unmistakable voice compliments these ben harper produced selections perfectly. "a great artist pauses to reflect on pop music" - pop matters.
