Late December/ Live Acoustic (RSD 23)
First time on vinyl for the gorgeous ‘Late December’, with a second LP featuring rare recordings from her Live Acoustic LA tour in 2006.
An album that’s broader than Broadway, a panoramic view of life, love and loss filled with drama and theatricality. Plus a live set that’s heart-on-sleeve time, bringing together songs from Lone Justice, plus covers of the traditional country anthem ‘The World Is Not My Home’, Richard Thompson’s ‘Has He Got A Friend For Me’ and three songs that show the bittersweet beauty of her brother Bryan MacLean’s song writing. In total, it’s Kurt Weill, Springsteen, it’s the million-selling global hit ‘A Good Heart’ delivered by the songwriter herself in all its Phil Spector-like baroque beauty.
