THINGS YOU THROW AWAY

TOO FAR–BLUE HIGHWAY–NEXT YEAR’S MODEL OF THE BLUES–THE THINGS YOU THROW AWAY–HALF MOON–STICK AROUND–RUEBAN’S TRAIN–LITTLE THINGS–DOMINO–INTO THE FLAME–DON’T WANT YOUR LOVE–LOVE YOU LIKE A WOMAN

Our final installment of September Sunday Nights With Susan Angeletti features a review of her debut CD, “Things You Throw Away.”  For this collection, Susan teamed up with guitarist/producer John Sheldon to write or co-write the originals, which run the gamut from heart-on-her-sleeve love songs to playful, bluesy toe-tappers.

Leading off, we find our heroine a true damsel-in-distress, literally “all tied up and I can’t get loose” from bad relationships, and, ultimately realizes “I’ve come Too Far to turn back now.”  John’s guitar goes into B. B. mode over Susan’s vocal on the title cut, where that love you throw away will “come back and haunt you some day.”  She gets into a soulful, struttin’ groove with the breezy “Half Moon,” and duets with John on a story of two embattled lovers who are headed for trouble because they “can’t do the Little Things any more” to keep things afloat!  And, she closes the set by putting on her pink Tina Turner-inspired stilettos (yep–she’s sho’ nuff got a pair, and you can check ’em out on her Facebook page!) for the funky story of trying to cope with yet another finicky lover, vowing to “Love You Like A Woman, but fight you like a man!”

Her playful side brings us to our favorite, and it’s a good one.  Done as an all-acoustic number, Susan and John again portray the bickering lovers in “Stick Around,” where our heroine plies him with the promises of “good lovin,” but he inexplicably prefers to stay “in the garage playin’ with his hot rod!”  (In his defense, tho, it IS a 1957 Chevy!)

Susan Angeletti’s big, soulful-that’s-wrapped-up-in-a-bow-of-blues voice got her start with “Things You Throw Away.”  We anxiously await new material from Susan, and urge all our readers to visit susanangeletti.net and pick up some of her fabulous music!  This has been a labor of love for us, and we thank you, Susan, for sharing your music for this humble blog.  Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues Society.
