This is a great album. Very singable in the car, and since the songs are so different, there's a perfect song to match your mood. There's an underlying theme in the album to take care of yourself. It's not about the love in your life -- it's all about you, the message seems to say. It's got songs on it that you forgot you love. It's really a lot of fun.

"This continues to be a special gift that helped me through the roughest grind in my life. "Songs of Life, Love, and Womanhood." Having a friend entering the woes of divorce, I was happy to find it again. It's about loving yourself and womankind and not male-hating, folks.Every song lifts and empowers. I'm thrilled to see there is another album now. Hits like: Annie Lennox-Why, Amy Grant-That's What Love Is For, Lisa Stansfield-(I'm) All Woman, Arethra Franklin- Someone Else's Eyes, Melissa Etheridge- Dance Without Sleeping, Carly Simon- Coming Around Again (medley with Itsy Bitsy Spider towards the end), Kathy Mattea-Walking Away A Winner, Tina Turner-The Best, and Taylor Dayne-I'll be your shelter; I cherish. Women for women--treat yourself, be a sister friend to a fellow lady--let's hope it catches on. Enjoy!"
Excellent, eclectic mix of music

""Women for Women" is a compilation CD devoted to breast cancer awareness that manages to combine an eclectic mix of female artists from all genres of music. There is rock and roll with Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge; country with Amy Grant and Kathy Mattea; alternative with Julia Fordham, and Annie Lennox; dance music with Cathy Dennis, Taylor Dayne, and the exquisite Lisa Stansfield; R&B with Vanessa Williams, Oleta Adams, Tina Turner, and the "queen of Soul" herself, Aretha Franklin. This CD opened my eyes and ears to artists that I would not normally seek out (Julia Fordham is now a fave).

Each song resonates with the listener; most compilation CD's have several tracks that you just hit next when the first few bars start. Not so with this one - you will listen to it until you wear it out! Best of all, a percentage of the proceeds from the purchase of the CD goes to breast cancer research."
