This is an Deluxe edition Of "INTRODUCING JOSS STONE". Includes Bonus DVD.Additional personnel: Common, Lauryn Hill.British soul-pop singer Joss Stone was originally marketed as the teenage second coming of 1970s soul stars like Betty Everett and Ann Peebles. After two albums in that style (one consisting entirely of obscure soul covers) and a U.S. marketing push including several commercials for the Gap, Stone withdrew for a couple of years. INTRODUCING JOSS STONE, from the title onward, is an attempt to completely reinvent Stone's public persona, from a retro-soul blonde to a hip, happening redhead with her finger directly on the pulse of 2007 chart pop.INTRODUCING JOSS STONE is produced by a bevy of contemporary hitmakers, though primarily Raphael Saadiq, and features cameo appearances by everyone from Lauryn Hill to ex-soccer star Vinnie Jones. But in the center of the drum loops, string sections, and slick electronics stands Stone's commanding voice. Opening track "Girl They Won't Believe It" sets the scene for the album as a whole, with Stone delivering a defiant vocal pitched midway between the appealing brattiness of Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse's full-throated R&B roar. No longer a retro favorite for the old-school R&B crowd, Joss Stone presents herself as a neo-soul diva for her times.DVD Features:DVD Includes:1. In The Studio2. Common3. Strings4. Choosing Song5.

She has the most amazing voice!
I love her bluesy, soulful sound. I have definitely not been disappointed & listen to the CD pretty much everyday if not definitely everyday. She & Amy Winehouse have something in commom when they sind that takes me back to the days of true soul singers like Eda James. Overall...great CD - honestly haven't watched the DVD yet & actually didn't even realize I was getting a DVD along with the CD. so...surprise! I hope this has reached the limit of 100 words now....

Different From Her Previous Albums But I Like It
Joss Stone's always had a unique sound that was/is her own. With amazing talent at such a young age she manages to break through the barriers and introduce a new sound that is catching lots of attention. I am used to her lighter sounds but am very impressed with her new "attitude". Joss Stone is an excellent artist. Go out and get her CD. Her sounds won't let you down.
