Carmen Lundy: This is Carmen Lundy

Now, when Carmen Lundy sings of love, you know she’s been there, done that. Celebrating all types of love, from physical to spiritual, This Is Carmen Lundy (Justin Time JUST 174-2; 55:51) is not only an apt showcase for her creamy, latte-smooth voice but testament to the power and passion of her songwriting skills. These nine new originals range from the unbridled lust of “All Day, All Night” and the naked honesty of “Better Luck Next Time” to the surreal but effective “Seventh Heaven,” which involves heavenly encounters with everyone from Lundy’s grandmother to JFK and Martin Luther King.
