Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

A combination of two LPs--1982's Good News and 1989's We All...Everyone of Us--Breaths provides a passionate, rich, politically charged perspective on Sweet Honey's early work. The group shows their emotional range and intellectual convictions as clearly in this nascent work as in later releases. From the philosophical lullaby "Breaths" to the declarative civil-rights offering "Ella's Song," this album serves as a forum for these brave-voiced women to unfold their ideals and passions with wisdom and care. Aside from the powerful original compositions, Breaths contains a handful of tender, musically ripe arrangements of other people's poetry: June Jordan's "Oughta Be a Woman," Kahlil Gibran's "On Children," and Birago Diop's title track. Each illustrates the group's ability to draw music out of words as well as set words to music. --Sally Weinbach

5.0 out of 5 stars The struggle continues lovingly! September 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being a grateful fan of this group for many years, I know that this album is by far the fiercest in delivering messages of empowerment, duty, justice, righteousness and love. Love for them is the deepest of the soul piercing elements these powerful women sing about. Out of all of my Sweet Honey in the Rock albums this one is the most played, loaned and never returned and heartfelt. The women of Sweet Honey in the Rock sing of things wrong that have been somewhat righted now, lost and on the edge of return, and harsh pain felt now past but not forgotten. Mostly, they sing of the love that is needed for all of us to do better. If you collect music for its meaning and encouragement buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Honey!!!!!!!!!!! August 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is magnificent! The music is original, spirited, warm, and reaches to your very soul. Each piece has it's own personality. I heard these women on PBS, and have bought two of their cd's. I will soon purchase more! Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic. May 5, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Got this after seeing the most recent version of this group live. Liking the old configuration better. Good songs, but I missed some of their classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harmonies abound! October 7, 2013
By Sparkle
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I pondered my next Sweet Honey in the Rock purchase for over a year and decided on this release. I am so glad I purchased this. I only have their 25th anniversary release and this was such a complement to that one. The songs and stylings are so similar and I can play both of these when I need some female lifting.
