Out of the Blues

Artist - Author: 
Rita Coolidge

Some of these funky blue songs ("Am I Blue" & "Mean to Me") were released on other Rita's albums, but this collection contains all songs from that 1975 session. One wonders why this collection wasn't released sooner, because Rita never sounded better!

Not only does she sing "Mean to Me" better than anyone else, she also takes the classic Sam Cooke song "Bring It On Home" and gives it a different "bluesy" feel. And needless to say, her rendition of Ray Charles' "Hallelujah I Love Her So" is worth the price of this CD! One of Rita's finest collections.
