She's blonde…she's beautiful…she's Deborah Harry! Best known as the vocalist and focal point for the NY New Wave/Punk band Blondie, Deborah continued to record memorable albums under her own name after her band imploded in the early '80s. This collection features the cream of the solo years and includes great tracks like 'I Want That Man', 'The Jam Was Moving', 'Rush Rush', 'French Kissin' In The USA' and her collaborative contribution with Iggy Pop to 1990's Red, Hot & Blue AIDS charity album, 'Well… Did You Evah!'. 18 tracks including a few bonus remixes of 'I Want That Man'.
Deborah Coleman's Blind Pig debut, I Can't Lose, is a powerful album of great ballads and blues stories, and of course, great guitar playing and singing. Her version of Billie Holiday's "Fine and Mellow" got her a lot of airplay on college and public radio stations around the U.S.
Deborah Coleman's 1994 debut is an extremely hard to find CD as it was done for small label. For fans of Coleman, it is worth seeking out though. Her style at this time not yet fully formed, there's a lot of worthwhile music here with most of it written by Coleman.She would go on to top this effort, without question. However, even a Deborah Coleman still learning the ropes is much better than just about every other artist. Fans will love this.
‘Deborah contains some of the most glorious music Handel ever wrote. Even if many of the numbers have been recycled from earlier works, the invention is still staggering. Handel devotees can thus amuse themselves spotting the tunes while everyone else can revel in the sumptuous scoring and the sheer vitality and humanity of the piece, all superbly conveyed in Robert King's recording’–BBC Music Magazine
Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A pleasing and swinging singer who has not become famous in the United States despite her talents, Deborah Brown is in top form on this 2015 reissue of a set recorded in 1988 for the tiny Reaction label. Accompanied by a top-notch trio of American expatriates (pianist Horace Parlan, bassist Red Mitchell, and drummer Ed Thigpen), Brown swings her way through such songs as "It Don't Mean a Thing," "I Thought About You," "My Romance," and Dizzy Gillespie's "Bebop."
Deborah Coleman is a double rarity in the male-dominated world of contemporary blues: she's a female lead singer who's not imitating the bellowing "blues mama" persona so familiar to the genre, and she's one hell of a lead guitar player. Featuring Luther Allison's backing band, Where Blue Begins is a smooth blend of Coleman's furious fretwork and pussycat purr of a voice. Coleman's slide shreds up "Goodbye Misery," while her buoyant licks carry the Texas blues of "Travelin' South." Even when her lyrics come close to cliché, like on "Beside Myself" and "Hain't It Funny," she saves the songs with some wicked playing and her Joan Armatrading vocal stylings. This album proves Coleman's not a novelty but a rare talent in a genre that desperately needs some new blood.
