5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Singer/Songwriter You Never Heard of... October 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I originally got into the music of Phoebe Snow thanks to singer, Linda Rondstadt. A few years ago I acquired a video tape featuring various Ronstadt peformances from over the years. One of the clips featured a 1978 "Saturday Night Live" appearance where Linda dueted ("The Married Men", "In His Kiss") with another singer named, Phoebe Snow. Well it was love from the first time I heard Snow's voice.It is an amazing instrument that is sensitive, velvety and mellow one moment and is muscular with rip roaring power the next.As an artist, Phoebe Snow seems to be able to tackle everything from folk ("Poetry Man") to pop ("Every Night") to gospel ("Good Times") to R&B and soul ("Shakey Ground", "At Last"). No wonder the recording industry could never catagorize her.She is both a talented songwriter and a musical interpreter. Originally I had the CD "The Best of Phoebe Snow", which I listened to all the time. But recently I've moved on to "The Very Best of Phoebe Snow". The main difference between these two 'best of' CDS? "Very Best" has six more cuts (some of them live performances) and remastered sound. Give a try to this CD and you to will become addicted to this amazing voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Launching Pad March 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Is this truly "the very best" of Phoebe Snow? With any artist that is as great and influential as her that is always going to be a subjective question. Yes, you'll find the hits (Poetry Man), the covers, and some previously unreleased versions of Harpo's Blues and Good Times (both live versions). But the original albums, like their contemporaries (Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, etc.), so vividly convey the heydey of the 1970's singer-songwriter inspiration and cultural/musical interblending that has so badly gone in the wrong direction since.

There is no substitute for the originals; they'll bring you back to a place when music truly meant something and changed lives. Thirty years later, Phoebe's sound is still quite distinct and stealthily sophisticated.

This is a great introduction to Phoebe Snow, who is clearly going to get the love and appreciation that she has had coming to her in upcoming years. People like Norah Jones very clearly are fishing downriver from people like her.

5.0 out of 5 stars When will Phoebe release a new CD? I MISS her! March 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Having been a Phoebe fan for years and years, I have been
getting my "Phoebe Fix" via her commercials on TV - but hey,
Phoebe's got fans out here that would love to have a new CD to look forward to! I just got "The Very Best Of...", and, yes, it surely IS the very best! Shakey Ground, Do Right Woman, Teach Me Tonight, Two Fisted Love - and the bonus: At Last - phew!
I've finally replaced the old 8 tracks and cassettes, and am ready for more! Does anyone know if she ever tours? Play clubs somewhere (besides the east coast)? We've got this great Blues and Jazz Society in Casper, Wyoming, that brings in high calibre acts - how about paying us a visit, Phoebe!?

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Of The Very Best August 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The title of this compilation should have been "Some of the Very Best of Phoebe Snow." Phoebe Snow has such an impressively eclectic range of work that narrowing it down to one disc is a difficult task at best.Tom Vickers does a pretty good job in highlighting the many facets of an artist that defies classification. Her folk tinged pop masterpiece hit "Poetry Man" is timeless in its appeal and still gets frequent airplay these many years later. Her rendition of Paul Simon's "Something So Right" starts out touchingly restrained yet soulful and builds to an ironic wail that far surpasses the formulaic, straight ahead cover by Barbra Streisand and captures the wistful and playful undertone that Paul Simon conveys so well in much of his songwriting. I am pleased that the previously unreleased live Carnegie Hall performances of "Harpo's Blues" and "Good Times" were included. "Harpo's Blues" in particular demonstrates what a gut wrenching blues performer Phoebe Snow is, as is also the case with her "live" performance of "At Last". If I have any complaint it is that I wish more cuts from "Second Childhood", my personal favorite, had been included or perhaps added to make a 2 disc set. Phoebe snow is often at her best in her jazzier persona with such standouts from Second Childhood like "No Regrets" and "There's a Boat Dats' Leavin' Soon For New York." Another favorite from that same album is "Cash In" with the gospel counterpoint background vocal brilliance of The Jessy Dixon Singers. All in all this compilation is an impressive overview of Ms Snow's unique talent. I recommend that you also explore "Second Childhood" as her most consistently satisfying album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phoebe Snow...Rediscovered May 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Something deep inside compelled me to find and repurchase this album recently. I did further research and found that I received it in the mail on the day that Phoebe's daughter died. When I played it for the first time, I was immediately transported back 30 years to front row seats at her concert in Sacramento. She wooed me with her depth, her resonance, her soul and I was fully captivated by her for two hours, caught in the trance of her mana. Her music continues to soothe and comfort. I am so happy to have brought this album, and more specifically her music and soul back into my life. Thank You Phoebe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Sound Quality
It doesn't even contain both her US Top 40 hits, but "Poetry Man" sounds really nice - audiophile like! It states "Mastered", but I'm sure [remixed] "Remastered".
