Bettye LaVette: Highline Ballroom, New York, NY
Kandia Crazy Horse, Harp, 24 September 2007
WAKING UP every morning now with the Blues, so catching the divine Lady Bettye LaVette's recent Manhattan show at the Highline was a foregone conclusion. Still on the voyage of her "rediscovery" triggered by I've Got My Own Hell To Raise, Ms. LaVette is back on the road with a crack band and her new release, The Scene of the Crime (Anti-), produced by those foremost southern sons (& daughter) from Drive-By Truckers at Muscle Shoals' fabled Fame Studios.
