1000 Kisses

Lead Performer: Patty Griffin; Producer (group): ATO

A singer-songwriter with smarts and a charming identity crisis, Griffin follows 1998’s radio-courting, Sheryl Crow-ing Flaming Red with an unplugged set that weaves her folk, rock, and Nashville tendencies into a coat of another color: dark blue. The songcraft is polished and real (”Nobody’s Cryin” and ”Makin Pies” deserve to be country hits), while covers of Bruce Springsteen’s ”Stolen Car” and the titular Mexican ballad ”Mil Besos” vary the texture. Bipolarity has its benefits. B+
