5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem 1 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
I had the vinyl of this decades ago, and nearly wore it out! This one will definitely come to my desert island with me. Sad and funny and poetic. Up there with Joni Mitchell's 'Blue', though quite different.

I don't understand why this album isn't recognised as a classic.....it's amazing in every respect, at once hysterical and tragic...just beautiful

4.0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time 21 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have just bought the CD version of an LP I have long had in my collection and delighted to listen to Dory Previn, with a voice the female equivalent of Leonard Cohen, all over again. Others will no doubt review individual tracks and my "review" is only to admire the content whilst the music underscores the feelings ascribed to the lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars All time classic 1 Sep 2009
By K. Jamal TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard this in the early seventies and never forgot it. 3 decades later I bought the CD. It has to be one of the most honest, heartbreaking albums of all time. I believe she wrote this after her breakup with Andre Previn, and though there is no mention of this, each song is a story of heartbreak, loneliness and sadness. Listen to Yada Yada to feel her loneliness while talking about things that do not matter; The Game, about how everything is fixed for her to be a loser; Angels and Devils to learn how we all need different kinds on love on different days. All the tracks are brilliant but my favourite is Her Mother's Daughter which is a sory of a lonely elderly mother inventing excuses why her daughter should not leave home and her. Heartbreaking and deeply thoughtful stuff. It is a must listen, even if just once.
