However, she's sometimes difficult to categorize as she sings slow-tempo songs the best. So she's not exactly a mainstream dance artist (HIT AND RUN LOVER tends to be a little too glam and glossy for a singer whose best moments come when she is quiet and crumbling). Centrist music lovers also tend to be turned off by the religiousity of USED TO BE and THE SKY IS THE LIMIT. And the purity and sweetness of her voice are a little too wholesome for Nashville so she's not exactly a country crooner either. Her forte may best be described as easy-listening--sentimental, soul-searching songs that often reflect the end of one thing and the beginning of another.
All of her formal albums are out-of-print at this point. I think her best one remains SONGS OF LOVE (1977), as it reflects moments of uncertainty, encounters at the crossroads, without a forced sense of moralizing. ("I Want to Come Back as a Song," "It's Really Nice to Be in Love Again," "On My Way to You," "It Ain't Easy Comin' Down"--good stuff, and there's no spoken bridge to "I've Never Been to Me.")
Several of these tunes are recycled on the '82 outing, I'VE NEVER BEEN TO ME. The best tune from the disc is the title cut (with "It Ain't Easy Comin' Down," a mid-tempo lament of changing times, also scoring high). I know there are people out there who hate "I've Never Been to Me" for various reasons, and I can understand their arguments.Read more ›
I've never been to me (needless to say) ,all time goldies .
Also Hey Mama , Johnny doesn't love here anymore touch me every now & then .
With the musicians like Lee Ritenour ,Wilton Felder ,Jay Graydon ,Gary Coleman ...etc , no show off but good performance . Maybe some don't think it's their cup of tea , but it's mine !
Good old memory for more than 20 years , I'm so glad that I found this cd during the trip in Tokyo .
