Paul Kelly – Righteous Woman 4½★

Is it a tale of spite or hope? There’s a relentless attack in Kelly’s voice as he relates this sorry tale of a love abandoned and hidden shame.

One of only two tracks where he is the lead vocalist on the accomplished album Paul Kelly Presents the Merri Soul Sessions, this is a masterclass on why Paul is one of Australia’s greatest living singer-songwriters.

The band play with a soulful passion, Vika and Linda’s sweet harmonies are both uplifting and tinged with sadness, and Paul Kelly is Paul Kelly. A beautiful song from a soulful album.
