New York Times (Publisher) - 10/2/91"..suggests the casual intimacy of a 3 A.M. living-room jam session...an iconoclastic collection of pop-jazz oldies that seem related to one another only by the singer's passion for them."

Personnel includes: Rickie Lee Jones (vocals, guitar, piano); Robben Ford (guitar); Charlie Haden (bass).
An eclectic collection of covers from one of jazz-pop's most eclectic performers, POP POP travels from the stage to Tin Pan Alley through Jimi Hendrix's skies. Rickie Lee Jones cradles each of these songs with her pleading, gentle voice, backing them with subtle orchestration courtesy of notable performers such as Robben Ford, Joe Henderson, and Charlie Haden. Her attention to the love songs of the '40s and '50s demonstrates a longing for simpler times and simpler love, qualities which are echoed in the treatment of songs like "My One and Only Love" and "I'll Be Seeing You." Likewise, her subdued take on the psychedelic Jimi Hendrix screamer "Up From the Skies" is slowed to a bluesy acoustic number, while the bratty refrain from Peter Pan's "I Won't Grow Up" seems blushingly sweet.
