When You Walk in the Room (RockBeat)

Jackie DeShannon's 50-year legacy as a singer ("What the World Needs Now Is Love") and songwriter ("When You Walk in the Room") of innovative folk-pop hybrids is stunning. Never as celebrated as Carole King, DeShannon revisits her hits here, some written with Sharon Sheeley of "Poor Little Fool" and Eddie Cochran's "Something Else" fame, all with stripped-down sincerity. **.5
