Picks and Pans Review: Renee Geyer

Renee Geyer

This Australian vocalist's first U.S. album will appeal to those with bluesy tastes. Her backup help comes from the Bump Band, last heard on Bonnie Raitt's Green Light LP. You Don't Know Nothing About Love is by Jerry Ragavoy, who wrote a number of Janis Joplin heartbreakers. Baby I've Been Missing You is a rolling reggae tune, and Geyer's sassy curtsy to rock's early roots is Chuck Berry's 1960 Come On. She has a nice edge to her vocals, though the mix by Eric Clapton's recent producer, Rob Fraboni, occasionally muffles her power. The high point is her zesty cover of Lee Michaels' Do You Know What I Mean.
