In 1995 I was lucky enough to attend a listening party when this artist previewed Home of Whispers. Since then it has remained one of my all time favorite CDs. Her voice is unique among singer song-writers. When it is combined with the wonderful words of her songs and gorgeous melodies, it brings tears to my eyes each time I listen. "Girl Writing a Letter" is fantastic!
She is the ying to Christine Lavin's yang. Check out Home of Whispers and the other CDs available at her web site [...]

I bought "Home of Whispers" on a gamble. I was first introduced to Lori Lieberman 15 years when a coworker loaned me her first album, "Lori Lieberman." I fell in love with Lori's voice from the first moment I heard it, and wondered why I had never heard of her before! I eventually bought that album, and 3 others after that. Even though I had never heard "Home of Whispers," I still loved Lori's voice, and was impressed with all the 5-star ratings, so I figured it was worth the gamble.

Thankfully, I wasn't disappointed. While I wasn't quite as fond of "Simple Things" or "Chain Of Need" as I was some of the other tracks on the album, I still enjoyed the album as a whole immensely. Not only does Lori still have a gorgeous voice as always, but her songs have beautiful melodies and wonderful instrumental arrangements. I especially liked the title track, "Home of Whispers," as well as "Something Of My Own," "These Eyes," "Girl Writing a Letter" and "Roots and Wings." Her style on this album reminds me a little of a cross between Eva Cassidy, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell. Very beautiful and relaxing. Definitely worth buying.

I had this GOLD CD from Pope Music for many years and somehow lost it in move. I was VERY lucky to find it again on Amazon. Even the standard CD is exceptional, and I have it as well. This is one disc I did not mind duplicating! This is one of those one of a kind discs from yesteryear that was used at audio shows for several years, fantastic program material, performance and stunning sonics, top shelf.

In 1974, The lovely lady that I was going with, introduced me to Lori Lieberman, singer-songwriter, her favourite. I have been entranced by her voice, ever since. Her voice can still send shivers down my spine,even with the later releases.

I can't remember the last time I recommended a CD based much more on its sound quality than its musical quality, but I must say that although the songs on Home of Whispers struck me as certainly pleasant but wholly forgettable, the sound quality on this CD really made me sit up and take notice. If I wind up keeping this CD on my shelf, it will be because of Gene Pope, not Lori Lieberman. Pope has captured a sound that is striking because nothing seems exaggerated. I mean, NOTHING seems exaggerated.

In almost every studio recording, no matter how enjoyable, there always seems to be something that was done for effect--a bit too much kick drum, a little extra resonance in the voice--some slight exaggeration that calls attention to itself and away from the music. On Home of Whispers, however, everything seems just right, and I mean just right. You need to hear this CD just to hear how well a studio recording can be done. And if you like the music better than I did (really, it was not that I disliked it, I just found it wholly forgettable), then so much the better for you!
