THE SOUTHERN HARMONY AND MUSICAL COMPANION(Def American 26916) When most rock acts talk about having "soul," they usually mean it in the spiritual, not musical, sense of the word. Not the Black Crowes, though. As "The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion" makes plain, this hard-rocking sextet is as at home with the funky grooves and gospel-style vocal harmony as it is with roaring guitars and arena-rock bravado. Of course, a lot of that has to do with singer Chris Robinson, who pumps enough passion into songs like "Remedy" or the bluesy "Time Will Tell" to make the music smolder and the listener sweat.

It was the most important night of the competition. The Swon Brothers, Michelle Chamuel and Danielle Bradbery had one last chance to make America fall in love with them all over again, and perform for their chance to become The Voice. After making it past the blind auditions, battle rounds, knock outs, top 12, and the semi-finals each contestant had one last night of competition. The Swon Brothers, Michelle, and Danielle each performed three times (a final performance song, the song that defined their moment in the competition, and a song featuring their coach.)

If the news that Geri Halliwell has a new album out leaves you scratching your head and wondering, "Who's he?", then you have some sense of the difficulties the former Ginger Spice will face in trying to establish her solo career on this side of the Atlantic.Halliwell, who left the Spice Girls on the eve of their American tour a little more than a year ago, is a household name in Britain. Then again, so are Zoe Ball, Chris Morris and Bez, and you don't see any of them being groomed for stateside stardom.

"`No one's young forever.' Well, I just laughed I turned to leave around the corner And the years went past."- "You Can't Go Back," Patti Scialfa It works like this: When you're young, you dream big dreams. Wild dreams. Outrageous dreams. Then you grow up, get married, make a family. Along the way, you wad up the dream like a tie-dyed T-shirt - the kind of bold, crazy thing you'd never wear outside the house anymore - and you stash it in the attic. But Patti Scialfa, Patti Smith and Annie Lennox didn't get the memo.

MEDUSAAnnie Lennox (Arista 25717)Even though it may not seem as if there's anything original about releasing an album of cover songs, that isn't always the case. Just look at what Annie Lennox has done with the 10 tunes she collected for "Medusa." Though some titles are so familiar they would seem to defy reinterpretation, Lennox and collaborator Stephen Lipson somehow put a new spin on almost every oldie. Among the more amazing are "No More 'I Love Yous'," a largely ignored number by the Lover Speaks that Lennox presents as the hit it should have been; the Clash hit "Train in Vain," which not only brings a jazzy swagger to those familiar cadences but finally lets the listener in on the lyrics; and the Temptations' "I Can't Get Next to You," which trades the bombast of the original for an arrangement that cuts to the heart of the song's romantic desperation.

There's a deep-seated belief among folks in the music industry that people -- by which they mean you, the typical consumer -- don't "get" groups. According to them, CD buyers have no appreciation for the power of collaboration, and thus see bands as consisting of two camps: The Singer and The Other Guys.By that way of thinking, it would be hard to imagine the point of a Eurythmics reunion.Never mind that the duo was one of the most popular recording acts of the '80s, generating such hits as "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)
