'Lectric Liz Lottmann Brings It All Home to Memphis
Lottmann is "right at home" with some of the most experienced Memphis musicians to assemble since the Bar-Kays went down with Otis Redding in his tragic plane crash. In fact, the only founding member of the Bar-Kays to survive that crash, Ben Cauley, plays trumpet on this session that was pulled together by Jeff "Stick" Davis on bass and keyboardist Billy Earheart, both of the Amazing Rhythm Aces. The connections are "Lectric," and Liz is in her glory. If she's a little over the top on "Trouble" and "Spellbound," you can understand. How would you feel if you got to mix it up with artists who not only defined Memphis soul but share several Grammy nominations between them and resumes that include work with everyone from Webb Wilder to Al Green? Home is where the heart is...and Liz is nothing if she's not all heart.

Fritzie -- All About Town

Memphis Revisited is a Triumph!
The first impressions delivered by 'Memphis Revisited' were the excitement of the kicking horn section and the tastefulness and versatility of the guitarist. The arrangements overall and how effective they were for the different songs was next. The lasting impression though is how versatile Liz Lottmann is as a vocalist. 'Memphis Revisited' is her triumph. She really delivers the package -- the songs, the arrangements, all the star players, she leads the pack.

Amy Cotham, The Morning News of NWA

Singer Revisits Memphis
Over four days around Thanksgiving 2003, Lottmann and her merry band of musicians gathered for a memorable reunion and recording session. The long weekend produced a lot of special memories for all involved as well as some superb recordings. Lottmann's session with (Ben) Cauley is a prime example of the history that was made. (Ben is the only survivor of the plane crash that killed Otis Redding and Ben's other Bar-Kays band members.) The goal of the studio time was to capture the Memphis sound. Mission accomplished.

It is a first-class project that showcases Lottmann's wide ranging vocal talent on a variety of Memphis tunes from the bluesy "Why Do You Treat Me Like You Do" the the smooth, jazzy "Why Can't I Be Satisfied." Liz said that the recording sessions for "Memphis Revisited" with musicians of this high caliber is one of the greatest moments in her music experiences.

Don Chambers -- The Don Chambers Group

Unbelievably great....
If albums were judged by quality and merit rather than the prowess of one's distributor, this CD falls squarely into the double platinum category. Every aspect of this production is a superb, goosebump-generating, masterful performance, from Liz's unique and versatile and extensive vocal talents to every lick from the incredible collection of players Liz brought together to the song selections to the lyrics to the orchestrations to the background singers to the myriad musical decisions made for every song of this CD... It is just all there. All of it! When Liz was paying her considerable dues throughout the years, she must have been kicking in a little extra every week, and in this CD it all comes back and pays off with interest! I'm no musicologist, and this may very well be how they do it in Memphis, but this is no narrow, regional musical interpretation. In it I hear East, West, North, and South. This is one for the world... and the ages.
