180-gram, 2 vinyl LP set by Pure Pleasure Records! Remastered by Ron McMaster at Capitol Studios and pressed at Pallas in Germany!

"Returning to her Mississippi blues roots, singer Cassandra Wilson interprets the stories like no one else can. Her warm, contralto voice hypnotizes. Surrounded by the natural sound of her 6-piece touring band, Wilson settles in for a refreshing look at Americana. Plaintive guitar cries and hands-down percussion provide a natural landscape. Steel pans, dobro, hand drums, and gentle, foot-stompin' rhythms give her traditional session credibility... A highly recommended album, Belly Of the Sun returns to the land where it all began and takes us along for a soul stirring ride." - Jim Santella, allaboutjazz.com "[A]n album that seamlessly and comfortably moves between jazz, pop, rock and blues, stitched together by Wilson's sultry voice, magnificent phrasing and the sure backing of her core group... The instrumentation and arrangements are imaginative and varied throughout and intimately and warmly recorded. Three-dimensionality and purity reign supreme here, with Technicolor instrumental timbres, tactile textures and full bodied dynamics. Wilson's voice is richly presented and artifact-free. The perspective is intimate and close-up. Ron McMaster's lacquer cut is superbly transparent and appropriately intimate and the Pallas pressing as usual does not disappoint." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, Music 9/10, Sound 9/10
