Listening more and more . . .
I find myself drawn to this cd in an unexplained way. At first I thought it was a simple and nice effort. Now I find myself pulling it out and thinking she's singing to me and about my life. There is a complexity here that does not appear until the third or fourth listening.

Sam Leach

A beautiful voice that I could listen to forever.
Excellent and easy listening. The lyrics hit so many spots. Thank goodness artistes such as Joan Hammel can still be heard.


A Pleasure!
Giving it straight, I enjoy this CD more with each listening.
