Typical nonsense that is constantly told in another forum. Jackie's voice is not her talent, a voice is just a singer's instrument. Jackie's talent is her understanding of music, recognizing the inner structure of a song and then working out her own interpretation. If Herr Esel would bother to delve a little deeper into Jackie's interpretation, he would also recognize the difference to other covers. Even if Jackie were to sing his own songs, that wouldn't guarantee success, just like her singing any original songs by songwriters. Michael Bubble's most successful song on Spotify is "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone. The next one is "Sway" which Dean Martin has already sung. You can definitely have a career without original songs. And I prefer a good cover to the junk that dominates the charts.

The new album won't draw in new fans to any significant degree...it caters to her older audience who are already familiar with Joni Mitchell. It doesn't offer any "wow" factor, or reinvent the song enough to get anyone's attention. It's just yet another pretty voice, one of many, singing an old classic. While Jackie fans like myself are enjoying new material from her, I don't see changing the landscape or trajectory of her career. What do I think of Jackie singing River and Both Sides Now? It's nice, it's pretty, it's Jackie, and unfortunately it just gets drowned out in a sea of pretty voices singing classics like these for the hundredth time.
