Maria's classic tribute to Memphis After the rootsy Louisiana Love Call gained adulation from critics and fans alike, Maria decided to follow her tribute to New Orleans with an album dedicated to the music of Memphis, particularly soul and blues. In doing so, she honed in on the theme of love, both the agony and the ecstasy, and its overriding importance to Southern music. The result was the masterful Meet Me At Midnite, which features guest vocals from famed Hi Records soul singer Ann Peebles.

Haughty and sultry are the words that come to my mind when I listen to this CD--don't even think about comparing this hot woman with Janis Joplin-cause if you do you're missing her whole sound--she's as hot as her cover makes her look--believe me after this CD lay back and let those dreams roll on--

"Shout Factory's re-release of this 1994 set by Maria Muldaur is greatly welcomed. Among a consistently strong string of recent recordings, "Meet Me At Midnite" is one of Muldaur's strongest sets. Allen Toussaint's "Trouble With My Lover" that opens the disc rocks with a slow midtempo groove and never lets go. Rick Vito's guitar on the title track that he penned unleashes some tasty electric guitar lashing while Muldaur's sultry alto seduces playfully. Rory Block's "Send the Man Back Home" is another soulful bounce & roll track with Ann Peebles & Tracy Nelson contributing strong backing vocals. "Power in Music" is another amazing track where Maria rocks like a Delbert McClinton soulmate with Jon Woodhead doing a tasty electric guitar solo & Joe Sublett blowing off the roof with tenor sax. On Tracy Nelson's gorgeous "Down So Low" that Linda Ronstadt did on her "Hasten Down the Wind" album in 1976, Maria takes the lid off the blues and burns mournfully. On "Woman's Lament" Muldaur does the track with voice only in a gutsy rendition of this traditional tune. Marty Grebb who I remember as one of the original members of the Buckinghams plunks out the piano part on "Mississippi Muddy Water" that he penned for the album closer. "Meet Me At Midnight" is a set that wears extremely well & is one of Maria's strongest sets. Enjoy!"
A wonderful Style

"The artist has a unique style. Her music combines blues and jazz with a definit New Orleans origin. Don't miss giving her music a try if you have not already done so."
