My True Story |
If ever there was an album that Aaron Neville was born to make, it’s this collection of doo-wop classics. The crooner’s fluttery, buttery tenor-just as rich as it ever was-fits tunes such as “Be My Baby,” “Tears on My Pillow” and “Under the Boardwalk” like a crushed-velvet glove. This labor of love was produced by Don Was and Keith Richards, who also sits in on guitar, and while there are no real surprises here, it’s all so tenderly rendered that it doesn’t matter. And with Neville having started his career in the ’60s, it serves to bring the now-72-year-old’s story full circle.
