Top Picks: Jane Eyre, the best of Bach, a post-superpower America
The newest update of Jane Eyre, a master pianist plays Bach, a dark 'what if' novel looks at a dystopian future United States, and more recommendations.
Steve Cropper – Blues Brother, master guitar player, and co-writer of hits like "Knock on Wood" and "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" – assembled a dream band to record Dedicated: A Salute to the 5 Royales, an early 1950s ensemble that helped kick-start rock 'n' roll. You'll be rockin' out, too, as guest-stars B.B. King, Steve Winwood, Delbert McClinton, Bettye LaVette, and Lucinda Williams take on familiar Royales' chestnuts such as "Dedicated to the One I Love." If you miss that down-home soul cookin', this CD is a banquet.
