Epic Recordings (Lucky Dog, 2000)

Shelby Lynne

Reviewed by Dan MacIntosh

Mixed in along with her straightforward country songs, "Epic Recordings" features Lynne's unique approach to a few jazz tunes and standards. These include the peppy "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" and the intimate "I'm Confessin.'"

But even when she seemingly plays it straight by covering a classic country song, as she does with Johnny Cash's "I Walk The Line," she completely re-invents it and makes it all her own. Her battle with the brass in Nashville is legendary, and one can plainly see why she has always been a marketing person's nightmare - exemplified by the eclecticism displayed here. But as a singer, she's rarely a let down to anybody, and this release is living proof of that.
