ROB SEZ: Last Friday's post didn't do justice to this extraordinary artist. Pardon me for the caps lock, but YOU JUST HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE SAMPLE RIGHT NOW ... if not sooner. Go ahead; I'll wait. [...this is me, waiting...] OK, see what I mean? NICOLE ATKINS DESERVES TO BE A STAR. Her latest album, Goodnight Rhonda Lee is already a classic in my book (AllMusic's rating = 4 & 1/2 stars). I'm challenging all open-minded music fans to go stream it right now. I promise you'll thank me. So what's her sound? Take some Chris Isaac, Roy Orbison, Peggy

Lee, Nancy Sinatra, Patsy Cline and throw it in a blender. Add judicious quantities of the Muscle Shoals R & B sound, classic country and some rock, pour it over ice, and you have a musical cocktail that tastes amazing and will knock you out in the best possible way. Haven't heard a rant from me like this in a while, have you?!? There's a reason for that: no one's knocked my socks off like Nicole Atkins in a very long time. MEGA THANKS to WFUV & WFMU for sharing the good stuff. Enjoy photos and video from the WFUV live session here.

  1. No, I DON’T think it’s possible to have too many Nicole Atkins radio sessions.
