Muldaur will probably forever be best known for her 1974 hit single “Midnight at the Oasis,” but her voice has taken on a honeyed raspiness now nearly four decades later that’s well-suited for Steady Love’s selection of electric blues numbers. Highlights include Elvin Bishop’s stomping “I’ll Be Glad” and the traditional “I Done Made it Up in My Mind” where a J.J. Cale-style rhythm turns the gospel number into a full-blown dancin’-on-the-pews choogler.

Fans of Little Feat will dig the slinky N’awlins flavor of “Walk by Faith,” while “Rain Down Tears” will win over fans of Bonnie Raitt. Muldaur dips into the catalog of the great Percy Mayfield for a take on “Please Send Me Someone to Love” and closes the album with Rick Vito’s spooky sounding “I Am Not Alone,” made all the more eerie by Vito’s back-woodsy slide guitar playing. It’s hard to imagine Muldaur singing the high-pitched “Midnight at the Oasis” at this point, but Steady Love reflects a richness of something much better – a lifetime of experience and character.

Steady Love is currently available.
