Now Ain't the Time for Your Tears

Wendy James

Steve Pick

James used to shout passably well in Transvision Vamp, an energetic combo with more than a few roots in New Wave styles. After leaving the band, she wrote to Elvis Costello, one of her favorite songwriters, to ask if he'd come up with one song for her next album. Costello and his wife, Cait O'Riordan, stayed home for the weekend and came up with 10 new numbers, and James had enough material for an album. The story would be perfect if only this were prime Costello material, or if James could at least sing. But even knocking out 10 tunes in a weekend, Costello is better than just about everybody else who ever lived, and James gets by frequently on chutzpah alone. This is not an essential album, but it is a fascinating one.

B MINUS.
