MUSIC REVIEWS

Marti Jones-My Long-Haired Life (Sugar Hill)

 

Jones continues her career as one of the most criminally overlooked singers around with her first album of new material in six years. (She released a live album earlier this year.)

 

On My Long Haired Life, Jones and husband/producer Don Dixon continue like the motherhood inspired mini-retirement never occurred.

 

Like Jones' first two albums, this album relies on other songwriters more than the Jones/Dixon collaborations that stood out in the last few albums. At least they have very cool taste, and Marti takes songs like Nick Lowe's "I Love The Sound of Breaking Glass," Elvis Costello's "Sleep of the Just" and Squeeze's "Black Coffee In Bed" and makes them her own.

 

But still more impressive are the couple's originals.  The catchy folk rock "It's Not What I Want" is as good as anything the two have ever done. (12/96)
