Audio Beaverhausen Takes a Detour with Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper has done several theme-based albums, displaying her diversity in doing blues, disco and pop standards.

In the meanwhile, the songbird has won Tony and Olivier awards for writing songs for Kinky Boots with Harvey Fierstein.

She has kept her career thriving, reaching new heights. She is fearless.

Today I received Lauper's latest effort, Detour. Of course, it's a long awaited event. A Detour tour is in the works.

Detour is a mix of country and bluegrass. Ms Lauper told Rolling Stone magazine that she wanted "the beat to be dirty and sexy." Indeed, she got results courtesy of producer Tony Brown. There is a seductive sultriness to the album.

Duets with Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill and Jewel are a delight to listen to.

Song selections show impeccable taste. The album kicks off with the original "Funnel of Love." I was pleasantly surprised to hear Cyndi cover "Misty Blue." Her version of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn's "You're the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly" is hilarious.

Make a detour this weekend to buy this album. Or get it Amazon.com. CD version comes with liner notes, credits and photos enclosed.

  1. I definitely getting a copy.. I do like her cover of Dorothy Moore"s MISTY BLUE giving it a country twist. Another great cover on the album is Wanda Jackson's FUNNEL OF LOVE. Those are the only two tracks i heard from the album...I really do want to hear the rest.
