Rickie Lee Jones: Songs From a Bohemian Past
Geoffrey Himes, Baltimore Sun, 10 August 1982
RICKIE LEE Jones appeared out of nowhere in 1979 with a stunning self-titled debut album. The mysterious bohemian blonde — who comes to the Merriweather Post Pavilion tomorrow night — sang in a breathy, enchanting voice that skipped around the beat and the melody. She sounded more like a 1952 Harlem jazz singer than a contemporary California singer-songwriter.
