Editorial Reviews

Review

Gifted vocalist Monica Parker is at her best when she relaxes and lets her talent flow naturally. Here, though, she is placed in contexts that favor aggression over subtlety.... The opener is a roadhouse flag-waver shot through with a searing, metallic guitar line and embellished by ballsy horn riffs.... Monica's roaring vocal navigates the melodic terrain with grace and dexterity, but her emotional range is strictly one-note.... The a cappella gospel closer, a heartfelt tribute to inspiration and faith, shows off Monica's voice at its most expressive and pristine; it's another indication that she is a gifted singer.... -- Living Blues

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. June 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had the tremendous pleasure of hearng Sista Monica at the North Beach Festival in San Francisco on June 13th. At first, just milling around the party, I paid little attention, then I thought, "Damn, Katie Webster is here." I worked my way throught the crowd, absolutely mesmerized by the power and beauty of Sista Monica's remarkable talent. I love Katie Webster but this woman is something way beyond. I grabbed one of her CDs on the way out and listened to it during my drive home. How wonderful. Chicago blues in Bay area traffic. Sista almost made it bearable. If you like the blues, get this album. Too much...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sista Does Play! September 30, 1998
Format:Audio CD
I had the good fortune to see Sista Monica live at the Monterey Jazz Festival, and I've never seen a singer win over a new audience so quickly. She was awesome! I bought the CD and it's the next best thing to hearing her live.

Monica is one of the relatively rare blues musicians that come across on recordings as good as at a live appearance. Her powerful voice and intelligent lyrics, her sometimes overpowering intelligence almost hide a lovable woman.
