TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the December 2020 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
One Of TAS' Ten Best Vinyl Reissues of 2020!
Irma Thomas is one of New Orleans' most beloved and iconic entertainers. On After The Rain, the Soul Queen of New Orleans brings her rich and resonant vocals to a surprisingly varied repertoire that spans 75 years of American songwriting, the common thread being Irma's soulful and direct-from-the-heart delivery. Spare and often acoustic instrumental settings by an all-star Louisiana band allow Irma's vocals to shine through on each song. Recorded at rural Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana only months after Hurricane Katrina, After The Rain is a remarkable declaration of resilience, presenting Irma Thomas at her very best. The album earned Thomas her first GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
Remixed and remastered audio pressed on 180-gram vinyl double LP, housed in gatefold jacket packaging.
After the Rain is a timeless work of art.
