    I can understand. A friend of mine a long time ago (but not in a galaxy far far away) recommended this album to me. I am actually not in to girl singers (except Janis, Aretha, Big Mama Thorton, Etta James,etc. and the old legends such as Ella, Lena Horne, Pearl Bailey, etc., so I was skeptical about it all. His girl friend made him listen to it, and he got hooked on it and talked me into wanting to at least listen to it.

    I reluctantly went down to the record store and bought the album. I listened to it. Then, I listened to it again. I got hooked. This girl was different. She reaches inside you and makes you feel the music whether you want to or not.

    There is always the search for the music that will make you feel those feelings deep inside. After you get through with the fast guitar licks and fancey drumming. It's music that gets into your soul that you find things that were missing. I thought it would be good to share.

    But, that is only how I feel about it. Everyone has their own feelings and ideas and that's good.
