Michelle Shocked

ToHeavenURide

2007-10-22

ToHeavenURide, recorded live at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, captures a Michelle Shocked, performing a gospel set including soulful cover songs of the Band, "The Weight", and Billie Holiday's "God Bless The Child", along with her originals including "Quality Of Mercy", recorded for the Grammy winning sound track Dead Man Walking and which has never appeared before on a Michelle Shocked album. Michelle's spiritual relationship brings a feeling of optimism to the audience as she gathers strength through her performance. This is Michelle at her best, in front of an audience, recorded live. Slip.
