Many years before this album came out, the title song was a mysterious, unrecorded song in her song book. I remember running back to my dorm room to hear the song finally on vinyl...and loving it. The album has some enjoyable, upbeat songs; some in honor of her early influences and 60's compatriots, such as Elvis and J. Mitchell. Other songs leave us wondering who she's singing about. Who, for instance, is Claire Vol and her young son? Who is Caleb? Despite the title, it's not a quiet album. She got together an excellent and versatile band, who match her powerful voice. Although there is not a hint of First Nations/Indian politics and sounds of other albums, which her fans have grown to love and crave (with the possible exception of "Civilization"), it is to be sure an important addition to anyone's cd collection of her outstanding body of work.
