A REALITY CHECK WEEK # 2 (WEDNESDAY)!
Some of you may very well ask, "Why post this video again?" I'm glad you asked. I looked up a concert review by William Michael Smith from May 18, 2008. Shelby Lynne was playing a gig at Warehouse Live--an intimate venue (and according to the review, she didn't use Pro Tools). She had an incredible band. The review described her covers of select Dusty Springfield songs as the embodiment of "smoldering subtlety and lots of pregnant space". Anyone could ask "What would be your ideal arrangement of this song?" The imagery and pacing of the film leaves no room for doubt that the words "tender", "vulnerable" and "evocative" just doesn't get any more real than this. It's quite an amazing reality.
