Jackie DeShannon: When You Walk In The Room
CD ($12.73)

The artists who've recorded Jackie DeShannon's songs reads like a who's who of the past half century: The Byrds, The Temptations, Dean Martin, Bruce Springsteen, Cher, Annie Lennox, Anne Murray, Van Morrison, The Carpenters, Ricky Nelson and dozens more rode her tunes to the top of the pops. For this newly recorded collection, the Songwriters Hall of Famer and pioneering '60s female rock 'n' roller strips production down to the bare basics and revisits some of the classics, all written either by her or for her to sing, that shaped her impressive musical signature, including "Put A Little Love In Your Heart," "Bette Davis Eyes," "Breakaway," "Needles And Pins," "What The World Needs Now Is Love" and the title track.
