Have a listen to St. Teresa by Joan Osborne. Cool, eh? Trippy video too.
Every time I play it, I think to myself, “Why did she never make another album after Relish?” One great record, one overwhelming performance in Standing In The Shadows of Motown, then oblivion.
Starting a few months after Relish came out in 1995, I always looked in the Joan Osborne bin whenever I went browsing for CD’s – something I did often. Always only the one album.
Eventually I gave up, and accepted that I was fated to repeat this sad question to myself every time I heard Joan Osborne.
Then a few weeks ago I remembered that after the album was released, this thing called the Internet exploded into our world, along with this really cool resource called Wikipedia.
So I finally looked up Joan Osborne in Wikipedia and discovered that she hadn’t disappeared at all. In fact, she’s been very busy.
Damn! Guess I got a bucketful of lost time to make up for.
