Renee Geyer: Shakey Ground
Renee Geyer: The Definitive Collection 1973 - 1998 (Mushroom)

This great Australian soul, funk and blues singer appeared at Elsewhere recently -- more of that in a minute -- but here by coincidence is 18 track collection of some of her finest moments from her four decade career, including her gutsy take on James Brown's classic It's A Man's Man's Man's World on which she really shines.

Also here is her version of If Lovin' You is Wrong, the live Standin' on Shakey Ground, Say I Love You, Willie Nelson's Crazy, her signature song (written by Paul Kelly) Difficult Woman and more.

Strong collection -- but any "definitive collection" should really have included that recent Elsewhere entry under From the Vaults, her exceptional interpretation of Kelly's You Broke a Beautiful Thing (here).
