Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

IRMA THOMAS

THE SOUL QUEEN OF NEW ORLEANS 50 Th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION

2009-10-12

It is almost impossible to sum up the past 25 years of wonderful music the undisputed soul queen of New Orleans Miss Irma Thomas has brought us on one disc, but this release certainly makes a valiant effort. The 15 tracks on this disc are pure music magic showcasing Irma’s finest work for Rounder records since 1985. In addition to the classics Irma recorded three new tracks for this release including “Got To Bring It With You”, “Let It Be Me” and “Your Ship Has Sailed”. For anybody unfamiliar with Irma Thomas this is an excellent place to start, for fans of Irma you may wish this release would have been a four disc box set. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
