One way I rate music is - after I hear a song (or songs), do I wanna hear that song again.
 
A few days ago, I checked Aaron Neville's recent CD, "My True Story", out of the Petit Library, and I'm on my 7th listen to the whole CD...  actually, I've lost count of how many times I've listened.  And on most all the songs, I'm singin' along... ha ha ha ... 
This disc, co-produced by Keith Richards and Don Was, features Neville and an excellent group of back-up singers lovingly interpreting 13 of Neville's favorite oldies and doowop songs.  The foundation of the original songs is still there, but the flavoring and accents belong to Neville and his collaborators.
