See the review for Runaway. The same applies here.

She does a fantastic version of the title track along with Dani Wild and and Victoria Smith - all excellent players but she really impresses when she kicks off her shoes and goes down into the audience to play. - look on YouTube[...]

Samantha is a recent discovery and I am very, very pleased that I found her.
Her guitar playing is par excellence.
I was a bit disappointed with the albums initially as they seemed a bit to clean and dry in comparison to her live performances* and while that is essentially tru, I found when I played them on the 'good' stereo that there is a wealth of clever playing that is a bit too subtle for some systems.

*check her renditions of RL Bernstein's "Shake It All Down" - only on YouTube, she hasn't recorded this but it is amazing - each performance is different and each a masterpiece of the dirty blues.

She sounds, like Robert Johnson, as though she has sold her soul. Truly a stupendous guitarist that wrings the most disturbing and delightful tones from her guitars, even the oilcan guitar the takes some mastering and her terrific four-string cigar box custom git. Not to mention her Delaney custom "Fishocaster" :-)

Have bought all her albums and eagerly await the next and an opportunity to see and hear her live!

I'm struggling with this one. Not your typical JLC novel, it never seems to get moving and I am finding the characters difficult to follow with a couple of exceptions.
Disappointing.

Been listening to Leonard Cohen since the sixties and most of the family are equally fond of his music.
This is a superb and very typically Cohen album. Playing it almost continually it is so god.

5.0 out of 5 stars but I am happy to make an exception where Miss Evancho is concerned, 5 Nov. 2016
As always that sumptuous voice takes you to another level.
I don't care for Christmas music, not in the slightest, but I am happy to make an exception where Miss Evancho is concerned.

Note though that the "Hallelujah" track is a dud one! Peter and Jackie sound dreadful on this and Jackie was apparently furious about it. Sony will replace any discs or the digital downloads with the fault on them - see the Sony Masterworks web page for details.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tried the American copy and it was dire and a very poor imitation of this, 10 Aug. 2016

This review is from: The Girl Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
This is a replacement for the original three separate CDs, loaned out and never returned to me.
As I speak Swedish it is most enjoyable to turn the subtitles off and listen to the original soundtrack.

Tried the American copy and it was dire and a very poor imitation of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best LPs in my collection, 10 Aug. 2016

It was a mistake - I thought I was buying the non-existent CD - I already have this LP, bought in 1976 and still played regularly.
One of the best LPs in my collection. The Academy have a magic touch.

Bought for the wonderful Jenifer Lawrence who was seriously underused in this, she did make a very good job of a poor part but Amy Adams took home the prize for this one.
