Prairie Fire was released in 1984 and is the seventh release from Cris Williamson on the independent Wolf Moon Records label. Its sense of place is bountiful - the mountains and prairies that Cris Williamson calls home providing inspiration for these songs, invoking horizon and heart-connection to both the past and the future. Special guest artists include Barbara Higbie and Bonnie Raitt. The title track Prairie Fire and Grandmother's Land offer insight into the Native American heart; Colorado Dustbowl Days' reggae arrangement harks back to the time of Woody Guthrie; and Tsunami is a driving rocker. Prairie Fire offers another classic insight into this legendary artist. Ballads include the piano-led Don't Lose Heart, encouraging a lover, while Suitcase Full of Sorrow is a heartfelt track using an acoustic guitar for its lead as the lyrics describe a romantic departure. Cris Williamson's breathtaking voice radiates throughout this classic album.
Really great music

"I have loved Cris' music for so long and this recording is as great as any she has done. I was not sure I would like the "western" theme but I do and so will you.
