Why hasn't EVERYONE bought this CD? Can't stop playing it.
There are so many great songs on this CD .. from Crack in the Sidewalk all the way to Ain't got You. I Will Not Be Blind and Graffiti are particularly fine. Can you tell I love it?

Awesome! Roberta Donnay soars above the rest-- makes us think Dylan & Simon
We are so blown away by this CD! The songs are eclectic, full of angst one minute (Crack in the Sidewalk; Jody), soulful the next (This Train; Canada), great words (Fly Me in From Nowhere)and use of vocal calesthenics that are beyond all but the truly great vocalists (Streisand, Aretha, Warwick) yet with an ethereal quality that belies the technique. Every song is poetic. This is an album not for the masses, but for those of us who abhor the silent majority (I Will Not be Blind), not to be taken lightly!!!!

Billy Donnay

Perhaps the greatest CD in the last 10 years!
ONCE IN A WHILE, A TRUE GENIOS COMES ALONG. ROBERTA DONNAY IS THAT GENIOS. SHE IS THE MOST BRILLIANT SINGER IN THIS COUNTRY TO DATE.I WOULD GUESS THAT SHE IS TRAVELING IN LARGE CIRCLES NOW. I KNOW SHEIS DEAR FRIENDS WITH MICK JAGGER, ELTON JOHN AND MADONNA, BUT SHE IS MORE TALENTED THAN ALL OF THEM PUT TOGETHER!

Donnay Smith

Solo Guitar stylings mixed with spoken word
Great angst poetry here, from "Karma is a 5 letter word" to
"Momma loved you more". This is the fabric weaving index of a Bohemian heart gone a flutter!OK vocals but fantastic drums and even greater guitar!

Ben Cohen

Edgy urban rap, back spitting gansta poems
Robert Donnay has a high voice for a dude, but the energy he be throwing into cuts like " Muther call me Brutha" and
" Pachouli scented crack pipe" makes your spine gyrate and your hips start to sway.

Huey Lewis Accountant San Jose

Both my business partner and I love this CD
After 35 years of accountanting, I get bored with elevator music. I heard Fly my from Nowhere and it is a smash! It helps me finish the books buy April 15th

Beverly Gefner

What she lacks in vocals she makes up for in storytelling
Roberta Donnay may not have the greatset voice known to man.But her storytelling gifts are strong. Her "done me wrong" angst pours out of every song. When she sings about the pain of lost karma, you almost feel it!

She almost sang at my wedding
We picked another band, but I'm happy she did a CD.
