London Baby!

Two things that always work on stage of a rock set: leatherpants and high heels. Shelby Lynne rocked the Royal Festival Hall yesterday and: SHE. WAS. AMAZING! What a concert!

I even got to shake hands with her after the concert… which is actually one of the few advantages that you get when you’re sitting in the first row. She was just great. Lot of Dusty Springfield covers from her recent album, some old stuff and … all performed just very, very beautifully.

I was delighted when she played “Jesus on a greyhound”, probably my favorite song of all the records because it has very nice lyrics and a great storytelling touch with a pinch of truth: It’s just the way a song should be written. Have a brief look (song is cut twice … but well):

I guess the UK crowd was amused by her Alabama accent which I unfortunately didn’t get everytime. And it was nice to hear her talk between the songs and connect to the crowd. Yeah.

Cheers from London – this city is truely amazing!
