That's a very nice song.The clips are nice but I would like to hear the entire song so I can hear Vince. I usually buy almost anyone's music if Vince is on the record but I am not really familiar with Joan Osborne. She sounds very good on the clip .Would there be a site I could hear the entire song ? I did check Amazon,CDNow and Barnes and Noble.

Anna - not that I know of - I downloaded her CD from Itunes....the song is very pretty (and the album is also making many Top 10 lists for Joan....she also has help from Rodney Crowell and Allison Kraus). You can hear Vince on the one song pretty well but it is more of a "background" voice.
Not sure if you want to buy whole CD. Can you check out the CD from your local library? Often I can get online and check out music from our library and it's free etc....
Barnes & Noble
Anyone familiar with Joan Osborne's exemplary body of work knows she's never been too far removed from the country world -- the Kentucky native has never tried to hide her Bluegrass State drawl, but she's never dug this deep into rustic and New Traditionalist-style country. Produced by Steve Buckingham (architect of Dolly Parton's bluegrass triumphs) and backed by a stellar lineup of Nashville-based virtuosos, Osborne delivers uniformly powerful performances on songs she penned (six in all) and on covers from the likes of Beth Neilsen Chapman, Kris Kristofferson, and others. A trio of Texas giants named Rodney Crowell, Roy Orbison and Will Jennings, whose melancholy beauty "When the Blue Hour Comes" inspires Osborne to one of her most nuanced, heartbreaking performances ever. But Osborne's own songs are as good as any here. She gets into a low-down, funky groove on "Who Divided," a thumping howl protesting love gone wrong; articulates both fury and fatalism with an eloquence worthy of Rosanne Cash in title track, a song rich in twang and foreboding atmosphere; and digs deep for a mesmerizing, folky confession "Shake That Devil." Her version of the Grateful Dead's "Brokedown Palace" traverses some rich gospel territory, and her countrypolitan treatment of Kristofferson's "Please Don't Tell Me How the Story Ends" evokes no one less than Patsy Cline. One of the great voices of her generation, Joan Osborne can sing anything; but if she wants to hang around country for awhile, so much the better for the music -- and sophisticated listeners

I'll check on that Charlie. Thanks. Sounds like it would be a good record. I have heard of her but most diffinitely am not familiar with her music.That is until you mentioned the other names in that review. Good review too.

I encourage everyone who can to listen to Joan Osborne's latest CD (Pretty Little Things - one of my favs of the year! Country/Americana music) but in particular - Vince sings with Joan on "Time Won't Tell".....a very pretty song.
Oh man Charlie, I thought you meant with our Joan! Knowing she was in Las Vegas with Vince, I wasn't sure what happened. LOL
