Joanna Dean was one of the most promising blues artists of the late ’80s. Signed to a major deal with Polydor, she was compared to Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raiit following the release of her debut album, Misbehavin’, in 1989. While the album showcased her skills as an interpreter with unique versions of nine tunes, including the Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter,”.

Her solo album “Misbehavin” is one of those rare albums where every song is amazin. Her voice a mixture of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick is terrific and gives the songs a lot of bluesy soul. Most of the tracks are hard rocking. A few of you may remember her most popular song “Kiss This” which received a very limited amount of airplay on MTV. However, there are three or four tracks on the album that blow this one out of the water and her band is extremely tight.

Unfortunately, her album is virtually impossible to find unless you are willing to pay well over a hundred dollars for it. If there was ever a hard rock album that should be rereleased it is “Misbehavin.”
