Sing, Chapter 1 by Wynonna

When artists assemble the inevitable album of cover versions, they take a variety of approaches to the material—some change the arrangements radically, others try to replicate the originals precisely, while most wind up somewhere in the middle. But the key to crafting a covers album that really sounds fresh is not in the arrangements, it’s in the execution: You have to sing each song as if no one has ever sung it before. It’s the only way to get at the heart of the lyric.

So it’s helpful that the arrangements of the classic tunes Wynonna approaches on Sing, Chapter 1 are entirely straightforward, helping to create consistency among songs as diverse as the pop standard “When I Fall in Love” and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “The House Is Rockin.’” But the real electricity here comes from Wynonna herself, who sells each as if she were introducing it to the world for the first time.
