More Precious Gifts from a Rare, Much-Missed Artist

"Kate Wolf recorded the title song of this album in her hospital room during her final, fatal illness. Heard today, the song (The Wind Blows Wild) is haunting, evocative, visionary, and a little melancholy--sheer poetry that will make you miss Kate Wolf even if you've never heard her before. Other outstanding cuts here include The Rising of the Moon, Old Jerome, and a studio version of perhaps her most famous song, Give Yourself to Love. This is a lovely album from a real artist, and truly deserves your attention."

"This was the first Kate Wolf album I listened to, and it is still my favorite. Although I have yet to visit New Mexico, much less, the town, Old Jerome, I can easily picture it - like so many other western ghost towns that have seen recent revival. Kate did an excellent job painting pictures with her lyrics - Rising of the Moon clearly does this - taking one on a canoe/camping journey down an Oregon river. Album has a wonderful laid back presentation - just like she is sitting on the pourch with you on a hot summer day sipping lemonade and playing some tunes."
