I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
H. ROBERTS
This disc leans a little too heavily on pieces with accompaniments; I can do without the strings on "Duende" or the final vocal track.
Michael Steinberg
Buy it used if you have to--it's worth every penny.

By all means, buy this used if you have to. It's a treasure of Liz Story. I, too, had this when vinyl but it's long worn out. I missed till I found another one, CD, here and oh is it a joy to listen to. Her style is thoughtful, considered, and considerate. "Melancholy," a few have said & I guess that underlies it, sure, but it's not a sad thing. It's just the way we interpret such thoughtful, deeply felt moments. Meditative but moving. My favorite tracks are Part of Fortune and, the unexpected vocal treat of Liz and a church choir doing Durufle's Ubi Caritas et amore so loving, passionately that you fall back into love just hearing it. This, along with Unaccountable Effect, are my favorites of her CDs doing her own compositions from the early days. So many artists owe her a debt of gratitude for showing another way; she sings with her fingers and her "voice" is sure.

This is the first Liz Story album I ever bought (on vinyl) back in the mid-80's. I was enchanted with it then and I still am. I cherish it even more now knowing that it is out of print. I was only a teenager when I heard about Liz (I think one of my teachers recommended her because I had been listening to new age music), so I went out to the record store and found "Part of Fortune." Sure, there are great pop piano players but Liz Story runs rings around them--for some reason Tori Amos keeps coming to mind, but Tori only wishes she could tickle the ivories like Liz. The title track alone is worth the price. The thing about Liz is that her choice of "covers" and her original compositions are always tinged with a bit of melancholy--at least they are here. The piano actually becomes a voice and it's not always singing a happy tune. Buy it used if you have to--it's worth every penny. Thanks, Liz, for all these years of fantastic music.

I too have owned this album both as an LP and a CD. It contains some of the very best, most moving and reflective music I know of. I have over 5000 LPs, 1500 CDs, a very, very expensive audiophile music system and I listen a lot.

More often than I can tell you I have found myself comparing Liz Story to Mozart in the profundity of her music. I realize that may sound way out of line, but there are half a dozen pieces on this album that are magic, in the same way Mozart is. A glass of chardonnay, Liz Story's Part of Fortune on the turntable playing through a high-end vacuum tube stereo system, a darkened room and a soft chair = utter, transporting bliss.

Her music can move you to tears.

Liz Story is almost always best when she's by herself, playing her own compositions. This disc leans a little too heavily on pieces with accompaniments; I can do without the strings on "Duende" or the final vocal track. But some of the piano solos are wonderful, including the brilliant toccata-like title track and the moving "Reconciliation," and the cello on "Ana" doesn't hurt this beautiful piece at all. More of a mixed bag than her other discs but fans should not miss it.
