Great then, even greater now
S. McAulay | Oakland, CA United States | 08/19/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this "anthology" of mostly traditional folk music is a marvelous trip back for those of us who sang along in the coffee houses and open air festivals of the 60's and early 70's. it ought to be just as enjoyable for listeners today -- they're wonderful songs, and barbara's a wonderful talent. happily, i can tell the earlier reviewer who wondered "what's become of barbara?" that's she's singing up a storm again, in better voice than ever, just back from a successful european tour and with a new cd just out: "what are you gonna do when there ain't no jazz?" ..."
Incredible blueys take on traditional folk
Lisa Ann Paul | San Francisco, CA USA | 11/01/2001

"Just discovered Barbara Dane through Intnernet Radio, Live365, and what a discovery! She has a smokey bluesy voice that defies discription. Her unique interpretation gives these traditional folk songs -- that you've no doubt heard a million times -- a new and timeless meaning.I wish she had ten albums in circulation, so I could buy them all and put them in my CD changer in endless rotation."
Must-have for fans of "folk scare" era
Thomas J. Byers | 06/05/1998

"If like Joan Baez and Odetta you are certain to love this CD. Because Barbara was performing in Los Angeles instead of Boston or NYC, she is not as well known as some others from that era, but don't let that mislead you. She has a strong, emotive voice - her talent is second only to Joan Baez, and Barbara is more "authentic"."
