Bring It On Home ~ Joan Osborne

An album of hand-picked vintage blues and soul songs which includes tracks originally made famous by American blues masters such as Sonny Boy Williamson ("Bring it on Home"), Muddy Waters ("I Want to Be Loved"), as well as recordings originally released by some of the greatest R&B singers ever including Ray Charles ("I Don t Need No Doctor"), Al Green ("Rhymes") and Otis Redding ("Champagne and Wine").

Jims Country Reviews
Joan Osborne has a real hot record here. She has given the Blues a shot this time around and boy, it really works for her. She has picked a great selection of blues classics and it really sounds hot.

Without the power and finesse she exhibited on earlier recordings, Osborne lacks the tools to make these old classics sound fresh again
