SHERYL CROW

100 MILES FROM MEMPHIS

2010-08-02

Sheryl Crow was born in Kenett Missouri which is about 100 miles from Memphis. It was the influence of the Stax recordings and the Memphis soul that influenced her early childhood and provided the inspiration for this recording. In simple terms Sheryl has provided us with a CD that mixes her smart rock and pop sounds with a traditional Memphis soul sounds to create a infectious soul-pop recording. In addition to recording with a brand new band, Sheryl has brought along some special guests including Keith Richards on the Reggae tinged "Eye To Eye" and American pop star Justin Timberlake who provides background vocals on "Sign Your Name". Sheryl ends this CD with a tribute to the man who provided her with her first break in the music industry Michael Jackson who she sang background vocals for with the classic "I Want You Back". Sheryl may never go down as one of the worlds best soul singers, but 100 Miles From Memphis is a recording that just makes you feel good. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
