Shelby Lynne - Revelation Road Deluxe Edition

.
Lynne made quite a splash in 2000 with her I Am Shelby Lynne album, an effort that had many proclaiming her the second coming of Dusty Springfield. And even though I Am… and its immediate follow-ups were excellent albums, Lynne got fed up with being told what to do by producers and took on those chores herself. So for the last decade or so she's been unfettered and able to work on finding her own true voice, culminating with the stunning material on Revelation Road. The album is inspired by memories from Lynne's youth and songs like "I'll Hold Your Head" juxtapose the joy of a simple pleasure like eating a scrambled egg sandwich with dark imagery of living in a home with an alcoholic father. That situation eventually ended as badly as it possibly could have; Lynne's father shot her mother to death and then turned the gun on himself, all in full view of Shelby and her sister, singer Allison Moorer. Lynne doesn't pull any punches on Revelation Road; it's clear here that she longs for the innocence she was robbed of at such an early age. But what's even clearer is that she has forgiven her father; these songs are filled with love. Fans who have only admired Lynne's singing have also in Revelation Road a reason to admire the woman. The original version of the album, included here with a few bonus cuts appended, is performed with a full band but the material really has a chance to shine performed solo and acoustically as it is on the included CD "Live at McCabe's" and DVD "Live in London." Also included in the CD-size box is a "the making of" DVD, a souvenir postcard and a booklet with song annotation by Lynne herself.
