Bettye LaVette – On The Surface

(click song title above to listen)

This week’s Top Tune is legendary soul belter Bettye LaVette’s inspired cover of Rosanne Cash’s “On the Surface”. After years of recording and performing, LaVette returned to the mainstream public eye by signing with the always adventurous Anti- Records and releasing I’ve Got My Own Hell To Raise, an album of covers that dominated critics’ “Best Of” lists in 2005. Her interpretation of this track is exhilarating, as she wraps her unmistakable vocals around Rosanne’s words and melody to transform the song into a classic Bettye Levette standard.

Lovingly produced by Joe Henry, I’ve Got My Own Hell To Raise remains a blueprint for a true modern soul classic.

Check out the video for Rosanne’s 1990 original HERE

Bettye LaVette – On the Surface

This week’s Top Tune is legendary soul belter Bettye LaVette’s inspired cover of Rosanne Cash’s “On the Surface.” After years of recording and performing, LaVette returned to the mainstream public eye by signing with the always adventurous Anti- Records in the mid-’90s and releasing I’ve Got My Own Hell To Raise, an album of covers that dominated critics’ “Best Of” lists for the year. Her interpretation of this track is exhilarating, as she wraps her unmistakable vocals around Rosanne’s words and melody to transform the song into a classic Bettye Levette standard.

Lovingly produced by Joe Henry, I’ve Got My Own Hell To Raise remains a blueprint for a true modern soul classic.
