It features eleven tracks on the standard release and four bonus tracks on the Target exclusive version.

Allmusic said of the album, “There’s something appealing in hearing Etheridge try a number of new sounds: not everything fits but the restlessness is admirable”, and awarded the album three stars. Rolling Stone also awarded the album three stars, and wrote “As always, her voice can walk a fine line between passionate and histrionic, but when she dials it back on the smoldering ‘Like A Preacher’, it’s clear that this honeymoon might be the start of a whole new her.”

Artist Countdown: Melissa Etheridge Top 35 Hits 6pm ET @radiomax @speak_true

metheridgeMelissa Lou Etheridge (born May 29, 1961) is an American rock singer-songwriter, guitarist, and activist.

Etheridge was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, the younger of two girls, to John Etheridge, a psychology teacher at Leavenworth High School, and Elizabeth Williamson, a computer consultant. She attended David Brewer School, which is still located at 17th and Osage Streets. She graduated in 1979 from Leavenworth High School (LHS), 10th Avenue and Halderman. Etheridge was a member of the first “Power and Life” musical/dance group at LHS. Her childhood home was at 1902 Miami Street.

Etheridge’s interest in music began early; she picked up her first guitar at 8. She began to play in all-men country music groups throughout her teenage years, until she moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music.

While in Berklee, Etheridge played the club circuit around Boston. After three semesters, Etheridge decided to drop out of Berklee and head to Los Angeles to attempt a career in music. Etheridge was discovered in a bar called Vermie’s in Pasadena, CA. She had made some friends on a women’s soccer team and those new friends came to see her play. One of the women was Karla Leopold, whose husband, Bill Leopold, was a manager in the music business. Karla convinced Bill to see her perform live. He was impressed, and has remained a pivotal part of Etheridge’s career ever since.[3] This, in addition to her gigs in lesbian bars around Los Angeles, led to her discovery by Island Records chief Chris Blackwell. She received a publishing deal to write songs for movies including the 1986 movie Weeds.

In 1985, prior to her signing, Etheridge sent her demo to Olivia Records, a lesbian record label, but was ultimately rejected. She saved the rejection letter, signed by “the women of Olivia”, which was later featured in Intimate Portrait: Melissa Etheridge, the Lifetime Television documentary of her life.
After an unreleased first effort that was rejected by Island Records as being too polished and glossy, she completed her stripped-down self-titled debut in just four days. Her eponymous debut album Melissa Etheridge was an underground hit, and the single, “Bring Me Some Water“, a turntable hit, was nominated for a Grammy.

At the time of the album’s release, it was not generally known that Etheridge was a lesbian. While on the road promoting the album, she paused in Memphis, Tennessee to be interviewed for the radio syndication, Pulsebeat—Voice of the Heartland, explaining the intensity of her music by saying: “People think I’m really sad—or really angry. But my songs are written about the conflicts I have…I have no anger toward anyone else.” She invited the radio syndication producer to attend her concert that night. He did and was surprised to find himself one of the few men in attendance

Etheridge is known for her mixture of confessional lyrics, pop-based folk-rock, and raspy, smoky vocals. She has also been an iconic gay and lesbian activist since her public coming out in January 1993. (Source: Wikipedia)

Feature LP: Melissa Etheridge – 4th Street Feeling – 12pm ET

 

On this edition of Feature LP we play Melissa Etheridge latest 4th Street Feeling.  From Melissa Etheridge . Com

Release date: September 4, 2012

What’s the 4th Street Feeling?

“4th Street is in Leavenworth,” says Melissa Etheridge.

That’s her home town in Kansas, pop. 35,000, known mostly for its prison and Army base.

And it’s the place evoked in the title, and title song, of 4th Street Feeling, the 12th studio album of her singular, 25-year recording career.

“It’s kind of the main drag, starting in the old downtown,” she says of her old stomping grounds. “I remember the first McDonald’s in town there. The town’s pretty small. That’s where we would hang out, the Burger King parking lot, the football games. Everything was on Fourth Street. That’s where we would cruise. And then it turns into Highway 7 that goes out of town to Kansas City.”

That’s exactly where the album opens, with the bluesy, harmonica-spiced “Kansas City.” The scene is set with Etheridge driving in “my old man’s Delta 88,” reliving road-trips fueled on “Lucky Charms, Tic Tacs and Mom’s amphetamines.” Only this time, the woman who left Leavenworth for Hollywood years ago is taking herself — and us — home. It’s a trip to where she’s from. But also a trip to where she’s headed. Click for more
