This CD could be described as a sampler of Australian and New Zealand female singing talent, all working from the lyrics of just one man: Paul Kelly. Kelly himself has a long career in the Australian music scene, writing lyrics for many people, and also performing with his own backing group (The Messengers, formerly The Coloured Girls).
The CD starts beautifully, with the clear voice of Bic Runga singing "The Gift That Keeps on Giving" - a lovely piece based around biblical verses. Then there's the soulful voice of Renee Geyer, followed by a sassy piece by Deborah Conway. Chrissy Amphlett (of Divinyls fame) does a wonderful reinterpretation of "Before Too Long", which was one of Kelly's first singles on the Australian scene. This is followed by a new girl group, Lash", who give a hard-rocking version of "Dumb Things".
The wonderful voices of Vika and Linda Bull make their first appearance singing "Be Careful What You Pray For". Then there's Christine Anu, Kate Ceberano, Rebecca Barnard. Angie Hart of FrentГ© does a version of "Careless" which brings up the gooseflesh on my spine. Then Renee Geyer returns, with "Killer Lover" - another bit of absolutely gorgeous soulful music.
Magic Dirt do a great perspective on "Darling It Hurts" - the single I can remember as bringing Paul Kelly to my attention, when I was about fourteen or fifteen. Then there's some of Kelly's work for other artists: "99 Years", from Vika and Linda Bull's debut album ("Vika and Linda" - see if you can get hold of it, if only for the best voices around in years); and "Beggar On The Street Of Love", which brought Jenny Morris to the eyes of Australia as a solo performer.
Two lovely songs with a country feel end the album: Anne Kirkpatrick with "Cradle of Love" and Kasey Chambers putting a really authentic touch to "Everything's Turning To White".
I'd strongly recommend this album to anyone who likes Paul Kelly's songwriting, as well as to people who don't know the first thing about it. I'd also recommend it to anyone who's looking for a few more Australian or New Zealand artists to have a look for - there's a lot of talent down under, and it's not just the men at work here. These ladies are stunning.(By Ms. M. Thornton )
