Gore Blimey

Lesley Gore has a new album.

Based on the brief sample available on her label's Web site, it's quite listenable—graceful, mature, yet with a voice that remains instantly recognizable.* I'm not sure if there's a song there, but it's a nice feel, and unquestionably the best thing Gore's done since recording "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" for the odd When Pigs Fly compilation.

I eagerly await a full review on Dustbury.

*Warning: The song sample inexplicably includes the very same note that Macintosh computers use to tell you that you have a new mail message. It made me check my Telnet mailbox four times within 50 seconds.
