Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

JOAN OSBORNE

Breakfast in Bed

2007-08-13

When I first heard Joan Osborne was recording a disc on mainly 1960-1970’s R & B classics I figured it had to be a sure fire hit. On “Breakfast in Bed” Joan’s voice is as good as ever but the tracks lacks the spark found on her 2002 cover Disc “How Sweet It Is”. These songs are perfect for a lazy afternoon, a leisurely listen & the perfect soundtrack for yes breakfast in bed. Joan also recorded 6 originals with the 10 classics on this disc & every one of her originals sound like they could have been a hit in this time period and blend perfectly with the covers. So my suggestion is to get that cup of coffee pull the sheets & blankets back over you & enjoy this new disc. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
