crowd-funded creative rebirth that might surprise even the most devoted rickie lee fan with its excellence.

written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennessee Williams, her first set of original material in over a decade is as confident and accomplished a singer-songwriter album as you'll hear all year. by turns playful and fiercely confessional, switching easily between her beloved character pieces and confessional introspection amid melodies that nod towards everything from 'a fairytale in new york' to 'send in the clowns', 'the other side of desire' thrives on the contrast between sophisticated playing and the spontaneity of jones' vocals, with stark production by John Porter (the smiths, Roxy Music) and Mark Howard (daniel lanois) stripping the material bare. This remarkable comeback re-introduces the planet to the bohemian princess who first charmed us with 'chuck e's in love' almost 40 years ago. "an arrestingly ambitious musical journey... a record that crowns her career" 9/10 - uncut.
