True Love is a heartfelt blues album, or as Benatar described it herself, “jump blues.” Most of the songs are by legendary figures like B.B. King (Playin’ The Cost To Be The Boss and I’ve Got Papers On You), Albert King (I Get Evil), T-Bone Walker (Evening) and Wynonie Harris (Bloodshot Eyes). Since most of these were written by men, a few lyrical twists and adaptations had to be made, but it works well enough. Neil Geraldo co-wrote I Feel Lucky and The Good Life, while the title track – a real Moody Blues-type number – was written by Benatar and Geraldo. A vigorous sound pervades the album and Benatar’s dynamic, clear voice does justice to the songs. An admirable venture.
