Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Melissa Etheridge (vocals, 12-string guitar); Waddy Wachtel, Bernie Larsen (guitar); Bono (harmonica); Scott Thurston (keyboards); Kevin McCormick (bass); Mauricio Fritz Lewak (drums).
  • Producers: Kevin McCormick, Melissa Etheridge, Niko Bolas.
  • Recorded at A&M Studios, Hollywood, California and Devonshire Studios, North Hollywood, California between January 24 & May 26, 1989.
  • Not a trace of the dreaded sophomore curse was to be found on Melissa Etheridge's second album. On Brave and Crazy, the throaty singer/guitarist/composer is slightly more reflective than on her first release, but no less confident. Nor is she is any less rootsy. Etheridge's earthiness is a large part of her appeal, and she uses it most advantageously on the gutsy rockers "Skin Deep" and "Let Me Go," as well as more reflective pieces such as "Testify," "You Used to Love to Dance" and "You Can Sleep While I Drive" (which, like a lot of Bruce Springsteen's songs, equates long drives with freedom and liberation). As introspective as things get on this CD, Etheridge never becomes wimpy or self-pitying. For all its vulnerability, Brave and Crazy is the work of someone who comes across as a survivor. ~ Alex Henderson
