Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Ahead of her time and somehow beyond time, Northern California singer-songwriter Kate Wolf now has a collection to represent all her craft, wisdom, and radiance. Produced and compiled by Wolf's son Max, the 35 songs on Weaver of Visions include every track from the previous anthology, Gold in California (less only "Full Time Woman" and the antinuke ballad "The Sun Is Burning"), and adds 10 live performances and two previously unavailable songs. The selection is impeccable, focusing on what Wolf's guitarist Nina Gerber has called "Kateness": an intimacy born of hard times, a communion forged in love's fire, a delicate soulfulness that few of her acoustic-oriented peers--Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams come to mind--have captured. Even if you own every Wolf album, Weaver of Visions will be a revelation--from the sparkling remastering to the elegant photographs to the intelligent, 42-page liner notes to the songs and voice that will tear out your heart, then mend and renew it once again. --Roy Kasten

Such beautiful songs.
Susan Baruch
Every recording she made in her career had beauty in it, and this loving compilation by Kate's son Max collects the best of them.

I am new to Kate Wolf's work. This anthology is a victory for those who have captured in two discs a rare beauty and serenity which borders on the spiritual. If you explore one singer songwriter this year who weaves spells with words and music that lives on beyond the transience of life itself this should be the one.Thanks to Emmylou Harris and especially to Nanci Griffith for keeping the candle burning, across the Great Divide.

It's hard to describe in words just how perfect Kate Wolf is -- the voice, the songs ... Then again, I don't really have to: this excellent two disc compilation does it all for me, skimming the cream off her recordings. Fittingly enough, it includes a good heaping serve of live tracks, because Wolf in concert was a very special experience. If the compilers managed to miss a couple of my own favourites, well, that's simply a tribute to the consistent quality and depth of her songs. Listeners new are guaranteed to fall in love with Kate Wolf; listeners old will welcome a fine, fine compilation.

This anthology contains some of the best singer-songwriter contemporary folk I've ever heard. I've been listening to this set for several months now, and am not even remotely tired of it. Kate Wolf's voice and songwriting will touch your heart..."Give Yourself to Love" brings tears to my eyes. I discover the music of dozens of different folk artists every year, but once in a rare while I will hear the work of a musician and think, "this is what I've been looking for, without even knowing it"...this is how I now feel about Kate Wolf.

Within about 3 seconds of a Kate Wolf song, your life changes a little. I mean, I don't even like the country bluegrass foot stompin stuff but when she sings it gets important and you want to listen. The ballads are a form of heart surgery with the patient always surviving and leading a better life as a result. My wife and I have been fans since '86 and were both saddened by her departure to "the other side" as she puts it.

I first discovered Kate Wolf's music twenty years ago while traveling the Mendocino Coast. It's not really about Northern California, but like a fine wine it has a certain regional stamp to it which adds to its quality. In time I bought all of her CD's and her music, which gradually intertwined and merged with my life until it seemed as if the songs were a personal gift from her to me, which I eventually learned was an illusion held in common by just about all of her fans. And in all those years, whenever I brought up the subject of Kate Wolf with my friends in Southern California, I invariably got a blank stare in return, followed by the question, "Who's Kate Wolf?"

The mystery of Kate Wolf is why her enormous popularity is still mainly confined to Northern California, why such a great artist has only produced twelve reviews on this page, and why this quintessential Kate Wolf album isn't even among Amazon's top ten thousand selling CD's.

I don't know how many (if any)other musicians have an annual music festival dedicated to their memory, but Kate Wolf does and last week up near the Redwoods, the 11th annual such festival took place. The music was bluegrass, folk, and singer/songwriters with only an occasional Kate Wolf number thrown in, but her spirit was invoked from the stage more than once, and the festival closed out with the singing of one of Kate's signature songs, "Give Yourself to Love." The audience stood and sang along just as if it were a national anthem (and maybe it should be.)

So if this is your genre, if Kate's advice to "Give Yourself to Love" makes sense to you, or if her gentle warning that "We've Only Got These Times We're Living In" rings true, give her a listen, and you too can become part of California's best kept secret.

Pacheco/RedtailHawk, Medicine Wheel,Across the Great Divide. I have several Kate Wolf Cd's and I seem to listen to this one the most, but there are many other songs and its hard to pick a favorite. Kate wasn't a country bluegrass stompin kind of singer but a beautiful folk singer. I wish I could go to the Kate Wolf Festival held in California every year,where a line up of wellknown singers sing there versions of her music. The information is on her website.

Nobody has ever captured the spirit of the rural West in music better than Kate Wolf. This generous set will satisfy almost anybody but those who have to have it all; for those who are just new to this artist, this is the best place to start - all killer, no filler. Some tracks are immediately addictive, while others reveal their pleasures more gradually.

Kate's songs are a celebration of passion, humanity, nature, healing, friendship, love, and much more. Her partners supported her with expert skills and arrangments that explored all the roots of American music, yet her style, concept, and delivery were completely her own. If Weaver of Visions is your first introduction to Kate, it may be a revelation.
