Sheryl Crow channels her love of Stevie Wonder, Stax, and all things soulful on her seventh collection, 100 Miles From Memphis, which is split between originals and covers (including a Justin Timberlake-assisted crack at Terence Trent D’Arby’s ”Sign Your Name”). Crow’s ? obvious joy is infectious, but even this former Michael ?Jackson backing singer can’t make a new ”I Want You Back” seem anything other than redundant. B
