What an album. I can't believe I pre-ordered this back in May, and it is now September 18th! It was playing within 30 seconds of coming through the letter box this morning, and it was definitely worth waiting for.
Sandi Thom just may not always have realised it, but she was definitely born to sing the blues. My wife and I have been fans since we first saw her live, supporting Joe B a couple of years ago. We had never heard of her, and we were blown away. There is such range in her voice, both vocally and emotionally, and both subtle delicate control and real power with it. Just stunning.
I've seen some comments from Sandi herself on a certain instant social networking site today which would seem to indicate she is disappointed about the reaction, or sales, or something. I don't know what the problem is, but I hope she reads this, because she should be very proud of this album. It is superb. Thankyou.
