5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Debut Albums Ever is Back....Finally! September 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After many years of absence from music shelves, the debut album of the very talented Phoebe Snow returns. It is still the best body of work Ms. Snow has issued, for there is not a weak track in the collection. She shows remarkable range here: plaintive, bluesy, melancholy, gently swinging. Her talents as singer, communicator, and writer are all on full display in such songs as "Harpo's Blues," "It Must Be Sunday," and her best-known hit "Poetry Man." She handles classic R & B standards such as "Good Times" and "San Francisco Bay Blues" with equal aplomb. Her talents were clearly no secret from the beginning. Jazz legends Teddy Wilson and Zoot Sims are amongst the stellar musicians backing her on this set. I purchased this album when it first came out in 1974, and it quickly became one of my favorites. Hearing it again is like spending an evening with an old friend. It has great style, atmosphere, and above all, showcases the soul of a gifted artist....A must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Those good old classic 70's......... May 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This collection of music will always hold a special place looking back during my teen-age years and when I listen to this cd and compare it to what passes as singers these days, it pretty sad. This music just came out of nowhere and became one of my favorites of the whole 70's next to Joni Mitchell (Court and Spark), Cat Stevens (Tea for the Tillerman), Bonnie Raitt (Give it Up,Taking my Time) Steely Dan (Katy Lied, The Royal Scam, Aja). Phoebe Snow has a voice that easily conveys the pain she carried and was able to write her feelings into songs that touched so many. Just listen to "Take your children home", "No show tonight", "Good times", "San Franscisco Bay Blues" and my favorite "I don't want the night to end" just to name some of this collections highlights. One incredible singer, who just didn't get to reach the audience she deserved. She had quite a few heartbreaks during her peak time in the 70's but always had that BIG VOICE that took you
to another place, try finding that these days?

5.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE DIVA! June 11, 1998
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was 197? and I had been hearing Poetry Man on the Radio. The song touched me like all good music does --- profoundly. I didn't know who Phoebe Snow was, but I wanted to find out. Who is this women I thought, dashing off to the record store. I saw the the cover and it blew my mind!
Took the album home and I have been hooked every since. She knew my sadness and my woes, my pleasues and my joys. Knew me and was singing my life in song.
Twenty something years later I am still in awe when I hear this album. Everytime I hear it, it's like the first time...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest EVER April 21, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is as fresh today as it was in 1975 -- the essence of a true classic. The minimal and tasteful production enhance what has proven to be one of the Greatest Voices in popular music -- right up there with Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Leontyne Price. The songs -- mostly written by Phoebe -- are keen and beautiful poetic observations, and are in a class by themselves. The players on this record, including Zoot Sims and The Persuasions, and Phoebe herself on guitar, are first-rate. This recording is a must for any fan of great music. The singing, of course, is purely thrilling. This is a truly landmark recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Folk and 70's classic August 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is Phoebe Snow's debut album from late 1974. This CD also contains the b-side to her 1975 top 10 hit Poetry Man. Although there weren't many other hits for her, this set is considered to be one of her finest in writing and style. Good Times and Harpo's Blues(her second single) was played all over the AOR and folk stations. Bette Midler recorded I Don't Want The Night To End for her third LP. Other highlights include: No Show Tonight, Either Or Both and San Francisco Bay Blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Classic" Must For Every Collection October 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ms. Snow has had a career with it's ups and downs that seemed to coincide with her personal life. But when things are right with Ms. Snow they are incredible. On this, her debut collection, she sings with such range and emotion be it a pop, blues, rock, folk or jazzy number, it can only be said that she has a style all her own. Unfortunately this album was out of print and in litigation for far too many years and now that it is finally available again I suggest that anyone and everyone purchase a copy so that you won't be without. I owned this album on vinyl and cassette and wore both out only to find it was no longer available. Thank whoever finally managed to get it into print again.

5.0 out of 5 stars unsung acoustic guitar hero March 4, 2000
By Cat
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my "desert island" albums, and has been for years. What a solid soulful and unique vocal style. But the real icing on the sweet cake this album truly is, is the tasty and clean guitar picking. Right there with Janis Ian and Bonnie Raitt in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've known her for years June 21, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Back in the mid seventies, a small group of us went to the Tower Theater in Phila to hear Jackson Brown perform. An unknown girl named Phoebe Snow did the lead in set, and to this day, she is embeded in the hearts of the five of us who traveled there together that night.
Phoebe's music touches your soul. She lullabys you, comforts you, serenades you or if you want, perks you up. Her music is just as fitting during the evening, as it is the morning after. In my mind, Phoebe and the late Laura Nyro are in a class by themselves.
'Phoebe Snow' is one of the only two LP's that I ever physically wore out, so I feel I can say 'I've known her for years'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great after all these years!
This was her introductory album and maybe her best. Her style and voice are distinctly hers. She had a sad life but her music is a triumph!
