|"…the eerie, quavering shimmer and imperturbable naturalness of Aaron's falsetto run, drift, float, and soar with '50s covers." - The Village Voice
Aaron Neville's Orchid In The Storm is often considered his greatest solo outing to date. If there was ever any doubt that the angel-voiced New Orleans singer wasn't in the same league as his heroes Clyde McPhatter, Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke, this album surely silenced those skeptics. Aaron is wondrous, finding the heart of songs such as "Earth Angel," "For Your Precious Love" and "Pledging My Love," and beautifully interpreting them as if they were his own. Effortlessly gliding between doo-wop, soul and even country, the music achieves a timeless quality that only the most classic recordings embody.
Originally released as an EP and out of print for over a decade, Orchid In The Storm, has finally been reissued. It will feature four bonus tracks including The Neville Brothers' "Mona Lisa" and a gorgeous tribute to Doc Pomus, "Save The Last Dance For Me."
