I have never heard this version and it is so compelling. You are absolutely right about her singing it straight and she makes it a new song for me, a song about longing and yearning. Anyway, this is a great site and one of the highlights of my web diet every week.

I admire Lennox & Marley, but the highlight for me on that disc was ‘A thin line between love & hate’, a total reimagining of the Sledge classic. Annie tells her story in a somber whisper, carried atop Anne Dudley’s (art of noise) lush string arrangement, building to an explosion of anger at the close. The most slept-on track of all time. IMHO.
