Import pressing of her 1998 collection that's out-of-print in the US. Wide Prairie consists of recordings made with Paul who had to finish the album as Linda had passed away before it was completed. Hard as it is to put all of Linda's good work to one side, it is necessary for one to assess this record on its musical merits. Wide Prairie is best viewed in the same way that one might a friend's family album. Many of these recordings--'Seaside Woman', 'Wide Prairie' and 'Cook Of The House'--are clearly made with fun in mind, as opposed to sales. EMI.

"I've always been a Beatle fan who's honestly loved Linda's singing. The songs that already had been released like Cook of the House, I am your Singer and Seaside Woman were always among my favorites. I bought bootleg albums just to hear Wild Prairie and Oriental Nightfish. I Love everything Paul Mccartney has ever released and a part of the fun and pleasure was being able to always hear lovely linda in the background. I have always thought she was the most coolest lady! I am so glad we have this great collection of her songs. She wrote some fantastic music and this CD is a GEM!"

"I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this album-but it's not bad--on some songs, particularly "Cow" and "The White Coated Man"-Linda reminds me very much of Kate Bush both in style and substance. "Mister Sandman" and "Sugartime" are both fun versions of older songs-and "Poison Ivy" while not quite as good-is the same. "The Light Comes from Within" is probably the highlight of the album. All in all-a fun cd from an artist who wasn't appreciated in her lifetime."
No es bueno

"Come on, if anyone other than the wife of a Beatle would have recorded this album, it would have been thrown straight in the bargain bin a week after its release...that is if it wasnt rejected by the record company first. Interesting from the standpoint of hearing some McCartney one man band efforts backing Linda. 2 stars for "Love's Full Glory" & "Apaloosa". The standout track is the dynamtie "Light Comes From Within", its the only track I'm not embarrassed to play loud! Other than that, it is quite painful to the ears. Not the voice, just the material. I mean, anyone with a 2 dollar Casio keyboard could have written "Cow". Linda was a great person, spectacular photographer and an activist for many good casues, but she simply was not a musician."
