A Gifted Song Stylist

"Helen Reddy combined carefully selected materials with a voice that was remarkably clean, clear, and crisp to produce a series of distinctive and memorable songs in the 70's. She surrounded herself with outstanding composers, arrangers, and musicians who accentuated her interpretive skills. From the optimistic and resolute "I Am Woman," to the reflective and uplifting "Peaceful," and the intimate and moving "I Don't Know How to Love Him," Helen created a sound and style that was uniquely hers. This CD captures many of her finest moments. Her songs often reflected themes of love, loss, and renewal. She could create a character and tell a story with a simple, but profound truth in the few moments it took to perform one of her songs. "Delta Dawn" aptly illustrates her ability to paint portraits with words and convey stories with music. As the years pass, her music remains forever relevant, contemporary, and endearing."
SAME SONGS AS ALMOST EVERY OTHER CD AVAILABLE!

"If you don't know this singer, you'd probably think she only sang 10 songs - almost all the cds listed (with different titles)are almost identical (except "Essential" which at least goes beyond the basic. If you like Anne Murray, Olivia Newton-John, Jane Olivor type of voice, you'd love her songs - if only they were available! If you ever find a cd with a combination of the following songs on it - BUY IT! They are the most upbeat, feel good, pick yourself up songs I have in my huge collection. They are A Bit OK, Last Blues Song, Optimism Blues, Blue, You Make It So Easy, Free and Easy, Emotion, Lovin you, Nothing Good Comes Easy, Wizard in the Wind. I have been looking for these for years but they just keep coming up with the same 10+ songs!"
