5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely Produced Second Album January 31, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Hands is deep and wide, with selections both personal and political. She offers a few older songs and covers ('Hands', 'Bread and Roses', Bev Grant's 'We Were There'), some more recent originals, all well-produced with guest artists Tom Prasada-Rao and Abby Newton (among others) layering in piano, cello, percussion, and other harmonies. A cover of Phil Ochs' Hands opens the record followed by twelve more songs of labor, unity, identity, activism, and awareness. Also, Pat includes liner notes giving further accessibility to the music. If you have her first album, this won't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful voice and melodies December 14, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Pat has a real talent for composing beautiful melodies which are brought to life wonderfully with her strong smooth voice, her great guitar playing, and the fabulous harmony that rounds out the music. Pat's words are poetry, and she is one of the few singer-songwriters with something genuine and important to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars A breakthrough song and otherwise solid folk August 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought HANDS after being introduced to Pat Humphries and "Swimming to the Other Side" in a feature on NPR. Like the correspondent said, the song grabs you. When HANDS arrived, I plunked it on the CD player and it instantly pulled me back a few decades to when folkies ruled and we all had to have guitars like them, back to Pete Seger and Woody Guthrie, back to the early Bob Dylan, back to reading John Steinbeck in school, back to when there was social awareness and liberal was not a bad word. She infuses the tradition with a fresh zest. "Swimming to the Other Side," remains my favorite on this album, though an informed folk devotee might say some of the other songs, especially the titular "Hands," are just as worthy. "Swimming to the Other Side" has a simple tune that lends itself to variations and its lyrics tap into our 21st century zeitgeist. We are living in scary times, we are trying to make it to the other side. There is uplift but no denial in this song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, fun and original music May 29, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Pat Humphries' (2nd) CD, "Hands" is a magnicent CD. I have enjoyed listening to it, often putting a track or 2 on repeat on the CD player to more thoroughly explore the complexities of her music and lyrics. My children (4 & 8) also really enjoy listening to her music. Humphries explores themes that resonate for all of us no matter what our ages. Themes like love, loss, justice, the natural world (and our part in it). This is a terrific CD. If you do not buy this CD, your world will be poorer for lack of the HANDS CD in your life.

By Anne
Format:Audio CD
When my niece and I ride in the car together she always asks for "Pat" [Hands]and for track # 9: "I'll Be There". It seems to make her feel secure and safe. And we talk about being able to tell Mommy or Auntie Anne ANYTHING. People Love is just a wonderful reflection of healthy loving. No Sweat and Cold Cup of Water make our blood dance with wanting to right all the wrongs of the world. Pat's beautiful Swimming to the Other Side celebrates our unity in our diversity on the earth. This album is a friend to us, familiar, challenging, loving, anguished, peaceful.
