This stunning reworking of Bobbie Gentry’s music makes the most of the incredible range of guest vocalists they’ve enlisted – this warmly produced, beautiful set of tunes is so much more than just a covers record.

Despite the range of people they’ve worked with, the whole album still ties together perfectly – the mostly spartan orchestration is devastatingly effective and brings the darker side of her lyrics to the light (especially on ‘Parchman Farm’) while not letting go of that sweet beauty that she brought to all of her songs. “‘Delta Sweete’ manages to breathe new life into Gentry’s album while also producing material as good as anything the band have done this century.” – 8/10, loud & quiet
