"Perla Batalla was featured as a backup singer on Leonard Cohen's live CD (a must-have for Lenny fans), but here she steps to the forefront on her self-titled debut recording. Coming from a background steeped in the music of Mexico, Perla Batalla has a rich voice that sounds something like Linda Ronstadt, but with plenty of individuality and expressive power. Ms. Batalla contributes some original songs, and also does nice covers of Van Morrison's "Crazy Love" and especially of Leonard Cohen's "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy" (which she does so well that I would love to hear her do a CD of Cohen tunes--her one Cohen song gave me much more pleasure than the whole of Jennifer Warnes's Famous Blue Raincoat CD). The musical arrangements are inventive, the recording quality is very good, and the end result is a debut recording that is clearly the work of a seasoned musical pro."
