Synopsis

Amazon.com
Bawdy blues belter Kane reaffirms her role as the 21st-century Bessie Smith with another satisfying collection of smart, sexy, and well-sung discourses on the pleasures and pitfalls of physical love. Despite her sexy mama image Kane is no novelty act; she's a first-class singer with enlightened musical sensibilities and that's why she always attracts high-quality help. Longtime guitarist Jeffrey P. Ross, jazz saxophonist Brandon Fields, the infamous Rev. Billy C. Wirtz, and bluesman Charlie Musselwhite, who adds some harp on "Put It All In There" and guitar and vocals on "What's That Smell," offer expert assistance but it's Kane's sly take on the sexes that carries the show. She kicks off things with a testifying rendition of the Etta James classic "Something's Got a Hold On Me" before romping through several witty originals and unexpected covers. The title track, delivered with grownup glee, is indeed the Led Zeppelin song and once you've heard Kane's rendition the boyish bravado of the original will never sound the same again. "Fit, Fat, and Fine," with jumpish horns helping out, is a swinging feminine update of Willie Dixon's "Three Hundred Pounds of Joy" while "Lion in My House," like Kane herself, is simply something that has to be heard to be believed. --Michael Point

CD Reviews

A very versitile set of blues, jump swing, and R&B!!!

"I saw Candye Kane, at Martini Blues in Huntington Beach, CA last night. She was wonderful, bawdy, and fun! She performed several songs from this cd including the vivacious jump swing number "Fine, Fit & Fat", (she calls these types of songs "Fat Woman Glorification Songs"). I liked her so much I bought this cd, and went home and listened to it carefully. She shows tromendous versitality as a blues singer, who also sings Ruth Brown style R&B, as well as swing and jump blues. She performs on this exellent cd Big Bill Broonzy's "what's that I Smell", backed by acoustic guitar, sounding right out of 1929, Delta Blues! There are several mid 40's sounding jump swing songs(including 27 Times), and even a dixieland flavoured tune, and to end things you get to hear Kane with just piano, on another 1920's sounding tune. She covers modern R&B, blues, jump blues, swing, dixieland, and 1920's Delta Blues on this continually enjoyable disc. All with a sultry voice that sounds like 1920's-50's period. A great set, great singer, and great cd!"
We all need a Whole Lotta Love!

"Something's got a hold on me right now - it's Candye Kane's "Whole Lotta Love"! The rythm, the sound, her voice - it pulls you right out of your chair. The songs are outstanding and very diverse, and her "Fit, Fat, and Fine" is a great dedication to voluptuous women.

Listening to Candye's music keeps your blood circulating and like the title of the CD's last song I am certain that "I'm not getting older" as long as I listen to this invigorating music. And you should, too."
Dynamite!!
