  1. I agree. She’s great. I very much like the vocal tracks. Louie Louie and Pull Girl are especially good. The Deni Deni and Hey Jude could have done with some of her vocals.

  2. It’s unusual for me to discover someone for the first time who has been around the scene for as long as this lady has been. I’m bowled over by her. It’s just like the good old days.
