"if any artist deserved a thousand stars, it's linda dunn. her self-titled debut is an example of intelligent writing and a voice that has been saving up "something to say". with a top-notch list of musicians by her side, including nils lofgren and the brilliant jon carroll, ms.dunn has given "pholk" it's maturity and it's strength on tracks like "stand down", bastard amber", "guardian angel", "in the chelsea", "sorry for the rain", and...hell, every other track on this tremendous album. this lady is just magnificent and this cd is a true successor to everything that joan baez has passed all the way down to mary chapin carpenter. do not pass this one up...."
Outstanding First Record

"Linda Dunn writes intelligent, literate, sassy and playful songs...that's what John McCutcheon says of her...and I couldn't agree more. The music on this album is soft melodic to raucus bluesy with a bit of pop and country thrown in for good measure. Her lyrics are the kind that grab you around the throat and make you think, sometimes the grip is loving and gentle other times fierce and fighting for your attention and sometimes it is just a playful touch to make sure you're paying attention. The songs on this album will be heard, whether sung by Linda Dunn or some "big name" star they will be heard, they are that good. The muscianship is excellent with strong supporting players like Nils Lofgren, J.T. Browne and Robert Horne. If she comes to your town go listen and buy this CD I guarantee you won't regret it."
This CD will satisfy all your musical desires - AWESOME

"Linda Dunn offers a feast for the senses. Her voice,styling and lyrics all weave together to form an enchanting ethereal experience. Her music is intellegent and poignant - sassy and fun. It is impossible to categorize her style because it , like a fine work of art , has no bounds. It is folk, rock, new country, celtic,pop...everything you could want in a musical experience - (except maybe polka) The only reason I didnt rate it all 5 stars is because it looked pretentious - ENJOY !!!!!"
