Biography

Maria Muldaur may be best known for her 1974 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis” and the follow-up, the iconic anthem “I’m A Woman.” But, her pop success aside, her 47 year career is best described as a long and rambling odyssey through various forms of American roots music.
In her teen years she was part of the folk revival of the early sixties, and she grew up ... Read more in Amazon's Maria Muldaur Store

Editorial Reviews

Maria Muldaur’s musical style defies definition. She’s conquered jazz, blues, country, folk, gospel and rock, while shaking the tambourine with Jerry Garcia and blending vocals with Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Aaron Neville, Dr. John and Charles Brown. She spent time as a member of the Even Dozen Jug Band and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band before going solo. This collection spans the last 30 years, featuring audience and personal favorites, picked by Muldaur herself. She includes track-by-track commentary in the liner notes, offering special memories and anecdotes for each of the CD’s 19 tracks. Forty years into her career, Maria Muldaur continues to tour and release new material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let this woman lead the Second Line Parade November 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have appreciated this woman's voice for more than the thirty years she has been recording. It is regrettable that she hasn't received the attention she deserves for her body of work, but that is just the luck of being an artist who chooses the best work for herself truly. She is ecclectic in her choices, ranging from New Orleans, LA to Nashville/Memphis, TN to New York City, NY. The album 'Maria Muldaur's 'Midnight At The Oasis' was my introduction to her and was a pop hit in the mid-70s and it also had on it Dolly Parton's 'My Tennesee Mountain Home'. Two songs of such distinct style differences that gave my fifteen year old mind wonderful posibilities. On this retrospective, there are the contributions of Doctor John, the Neville Brothers, Peggy Lee, Brother Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, JJ Cale, Ry Cooper, Bonnie Riatt, Mavis Staples, The Chambers Brothers, Benny Carter, and too many more. Because of Ms Mudaur, I have since listened to and become a fan of many almost forgotten greats like Ma Rainey, Memphis Minnie, Fats Waller, Bessie Smith, and Hoagy Carmichael. I have seen people try to catagorize the music of this woman, but she is more than the Blues, or Gospel, or Pop, or whatever you try to file her under - other than Favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album with only one surprise. January 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is really an amazing album that has quite a variety of music (the spectrum goes from gospel to hokum (or vice versa if you prefer)). She runs the gamut of jazz, blues, gospel, field hollers, hokum, and pop. Only one surprise. I'm amazed that she didn't pick "Richland Woman Blues" as one of her best. She single handedly turned this Mississippi John Hurt song into a masterpiece. I'm not questioning her choices (I'm just glad the artist is the producer for a change), and there's no way of adding it in (it's a 79+ minute disc). Maria and her friends (Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Bonnie Rait, Mavis Staples, Aaron Nevil, The Chambers Brothers, Charles Brown, Hoagy Carmichael, and a lot more) make one full platter of entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet! May 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This compilation is even better than I thought it would be when I bought it. I was originally looking for a few of her "hits" but then I thought I would give this CD a try to learn more about her music... and I'm glad I did. Other than two songs at the beginning which don't do much for me (My Tennessee Mountain Home and The Work Song) this collection is a solid "10". I am really amazed at how Maria's style can be sexy and spiritual at the same time. A great addition to any music collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Midnight at the Oasis June 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection of Muldar's best features, of course, 'Midnight at the Oasis', a fabulous tune. But 'Midnight' is merely one of a number of great songs done up in Muldaur's unique style. It's a great cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked on "Midnight" July 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I was smitten by "Midnight at the Oasis" in the early seventies. Marie's voice is truly one of the sexiest women's singing voices of all time. In 2004...At the "Blue Guitar" in Palm Springs...in person and in great voice...She rocked... After the gig, Maria signed my "I'm A Woman" CD. A truly memorable night. All are great, but "Cajun Moon" brings back memories that have a deep and haunting effect on me... that makes for many repeated listenings.
