Product Description:

For the screen adaptation of the Rebecca Wells novel of the same name, Director and Soundtrack Executive Producer Callie Khouri rightly chose music reflecting the southern setting of this story. To that end, the DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD soundtrack finds O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? mastermind T-Bone Burnett steering this ship. Burnett's guidance through 19 cuts worth of Cajun, blues, folk, and gospel includes odd bedfellows Mahalia Jackson, Lauryn Hill, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, and Acadian treasure Ann Savoy--who delivers three French-language numbers including the surprisingly upbeat "C'est Si Triste." Blues great Jimmy Reed plays a prominent role with three cuts including the tasty shuffle "Found Love," the light-driving jam "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby?," and the slow stroll "Little Rain." Reed peer Slim Harpo also appears with his signature "I Got Love If You Want It," while Taj Mahal delivers a supper-club version of Fats Waller's "Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now." Other impressive covers include Macy Gray's straight-forward, bouncy take on Billie Holiday's "I Want To Be Your Mother's Son-In-Law," and Tony Bennett's after-hours rendition of Nat "King" Cole's "If Yesterday Could Only Be Tomorrow." DIVINE SECRETS lets T-Bone Burnett once again successfully throw open the doors to America's rich musical history.
