About this product
Lucinda has always wanted to record some of her favourite songs and Both Sides is the result. It is a Cd for the car, for those times of quiet reflection and unwinding. Its thought provoking and definitely a one to hold onto. For info on Live gigs and workshops see www.blissfulrecords.com appearances…
She is joined by a host of talented musicians including: Caroline Lavelle on cello, William Orbit (Massive Attack), Marcus Cliffe on bass, keys and Guitar (Mark Knopfler, Emmylou Harris) Melvin Duffy on pedal steel and dobro (Robbie Williams) and Gerraint Watkins on accordion (Van Morrison) to name a few.
Each song has been given a new flavour and Lucinda has managed to hold her own even against the greats such as Joni Mitchel. Her heart rending version of Both Sides Now with solo Guitar played by Phil Hudson is a real grower.
The collection includes the classic Fields of Gold by Sting, the haunting Kate Rusby ballad, Underneath The Stars and the deeply touching story of St Bernadette by Leonard Cohen.
Lucinda tackles the challenging Overjoyed by Stevie Wonder with ease and adds her own Thank you for all of it, a song listing all of things she is thankful for which ties in with her workshops on the Power of Gratitude. One of the most powerful songs is by a relatively unknown band called Miracle Mile. The Dust Will Shape Your Sins is a moving goodbye which shows off Lucinda’s soulful side and features jazz flugel by Chris Bachelor
