Sheryl Crow

Miles from Memphis Live at the Pantages Theatre Blu-Ray

Review by Gary Hill

I’ve never completely gotten the whole Sheryl Crow thing. Sure, I know she’s popular and I used to have a real prejudice against “popular” music. I remember hearing one of her early albums and thinking she was covering John Lennon only to find out it was an “original” that I pegged as a dead rip off. Funny thing is, I don’t think she ever got sued for that one, and I listened to both songs again recently, and I still think it’s a blatant rip off. So, I’ve had a chip on my shoulder when it came to Sheryl Crow.

I have to say this killer BluRay DVD changed my mind. The lady can perform. I’ve been missing out by writing her off all these years. It’s a safe bet that Sheryl Crow fans will love this one. After all, it converted me. OK, not completely converted. I don’t go so far as to say I’m a Sheryl Crow fan, but she’s good. She still copied Lennon on that old album, though. I don’t care what anybody says. That doesn’t mean she can’t put on a killer performance, though. This disc certainly proves that.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2011  Volume 4 at lulu.com/strangesound.
