If you recall how Rickie Lee Jones blew in like a gust of fresh air in '79, you'll understand the potential in this New York duo for a new generation of listeners. Rebecca Martin is a ringer for Jones on the effervescent "Save Me," and guitarist Jesse Harris injects an acoustic folk swing into stellar tracks like "Geraldine," "Trumansburg," and "I Haven't Been Me." Simple, fresh, and invigorating. --Jeff Bateman

Still on my CD player after all these years
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I picked up a copy of Once Blue's album after catching them as the opening act for The Beautiful South at the old 9:30 Club in DC. It was the fall of 1995. Over six years later, I still think this was one of the best duos to come out of the NY pop scene in the 90s. The songs are catchy, intelligent, and have a very unique style. The sound quality is excellent. Too bad the duo broke up before reaching any sort of media attention. Rebecca Martin, the singer, is still out there, recording strong solo albums that display her amazing, unique voice. Jesse Harris plays on Norah Jones' new album, and wrote a couple of songs for it. For those of you missing Once Blue, pick up Norah's CD and listen to the first track ("Don't Know Why") or catch the video on MTV. The similarity to Once Blue is eerie."

There are 9 bonus tracks of songs that were intended for the second recording added to the CD (bringing the total number of tracks to 21). Currently, it's difficult to find in the states, but you will be able to purchase it from either rebeccamartin.com or jesseharrismusic.comPlease visit. We're excited for everyone to hear it of course."
