from the sixtie s through the seventies and
has developed into a strong, candid
voice of the eighties, encapsulating fire
and spunk with forgiveness and grace
into songs that seem to ling er in your mind

refreshingly distinct in sound and words,
though when the concert ends (or the re
cord) one is left with the certainty that
there is nothing finer than the essence of
the human spirit.
