So, this is the sixth Album. I was stunned by the first in 2000 - even though no one can touch Brel - and have been ever since.
Nothing changed except with every release it got better. Every CD full of great stuff. Like Rene Marie, Barb Jungr takes a song and makes it her own - gives it something special. Yet somehow every CD has in the midst of its excellence, an offering, a pinnacle, that stands out from the others. Marieke, Is Your Love in Vain? Always on my Mind, Blind, Willie McTell.
Just like a Woman is the best (so far!). On this Album there is not just one song that shines - they all up there. However, edging above the rest, with the vibrato well under control, are Angel of the Morning, Lilac Wine and One Morning in May. It was like listening to them for the very first time. Wonderful empathy.
A fine tribute from one great lady to another.
Buy this - but also get to see her live - that's even better.
