CD Reviews

A Top Folk Classic
Jeff Farrow | 01/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"RICHARD FARIÑA was great poet in the great tradition of the troupador. His life ended too early as the result of a motorcycle accident. Nonetheless, he and his partner/wife Mimi Baez (sister of Joan Baez) created one of the great albums of the "beat" and new folk movement, REFLECTIONS IN A CRYSTAL WIND. Songs on it such as "Children of Darkness" and "Raven Girl" metaphorically describe the sense of personal torment and social destruction experiemced by a whole generation during the Vietnam Era. Richard and Mimi's duets are flawlessly in synch. First-rate musicians accompany on most songs. The youth today might actually relate to the sensitive musical and political substance on this CD from our history. It's time a new social consciousness was born, and this CD points to Tao (The Way.)
