Joan Baez's second album, recorded when she was 20 years old, is a hearty helping of folk masterpieces that give ample evidence to exactly how she was established as a leader of the contemporary folk scene of the day. In August of 2001, Joan Baez, Vol. 2 was reissued in an audiophile remastered edition, with new annotation and containing three additional songs from the same sessions – all are a match for anything on the original album, and "I Once Loved a Boy" and "The Longest Train I Ever Saw" count among the saddest, most emotionally enveloping songs of Baez's early career.

This 1987 best-of compiles the work from A&M efforts that marked a stylistic change from her Vanguard years, yet a pretty consistent level of success. Relying on the work of other artists seemed to be more hit and miss during the A&M era. In Baez's interpretations of songs like Bob Dylan's "Simple Twist of Fate" and "Forever Young" and John Lennon's "Imagine," her pitch-perfect tone might strike some as unemotional, but her singing is engrossing nonetheless. Not surprisingly, Baez sounds the best here with the tracks that deviate from weighty issues. "Gracias a la Vida" (sung in Spanish) and the haunting "Di Da" (with Joni Mitchell) have her giving off more charm and emotion than usual. "Children and All That Jazz," from her best-selling 1975 album Diamonds & Rust, has a gorgeous, heavily produced '70s L.A. pop/rock style that suited her voice.
Bellini - Norma (Richard Bonynge, Joan Sutherland) (2001/1978)

Bellini’s Norma contains one of the most impressive and also most difficult soprano roles in the whole repertoire of opera. Few sopranos can do justice to it. The first of those who have must surely be Maria Callas, considered the outstanding interpreter of the title part. The role, along with Bellini"s opera, was interpreted in a revolutionary fashion by Joan Sutherland (born in Sydney 1926). She is the protagonist in the present recording made at the Sydney Opera House in August 1978. "La Stupenda", as Joan Sutherland was known in musical circles, ended her international career in 1990. The celebrated production by Sandro Sequi, with Fiorella Mariani"s lavish décor and costumes, concentrates entirely on the human destiny of a woman on the edge of her existence. He intelligently brings forth the priestess’ emotional world, hence showing the many facets of Norma"s character. The whole drama of events on the stage is reflected in the orchestra pit, and musical director Richard Bonynge demonstrates once again his competence for great musical theatre.

Rock Icon Joan Jett, the original riot grrrl, is back. As co-founder of the all-girl, straight-up Rock & Roll group the Runaways, Joan cracked the door for female artists to rock just as hard as the boys. Joan Jett will keep her fire burning with the release of Sinner on her own Blackheart Records. While most of the contents previously appeared on the Japan-only release Naked, some in different mixes, it is her first record of new material released in the United States since Pure and Simple in 1994.

Sometimes the worst tragedies can give rise to great things. Evil Stig is a side project formed after the murder of The Gits singer Mia Zapata by the surviving band members and Joan Jett to raise money for a Seattle self-defense and support group for women called Home Alive. What began as a one-off gig as part of a series of Home Alive benefits held in Portland, Oregon, turned into a string of shows, songwriting collaborations and eventually this album…

Label: Sarah Matthews | Release Year: 2016

Sarah Matthews was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. She is what you'd call "blue-eyed soul" or some say she's an old soul. This album brings to light the different and often complex personas that exist within one being. Part of being human is trying to find ways to relate to others in the world. Relationships are also complex and many of the songs reflect the multitude of emotions she goes through with those who were close. "As I Am" sort of covers a variety of genres to exemplify the fact that people can be many kinds of performers and artists. Sarah studied vocal jazz and classical voice at SF State and is currently working on her masters in music education at Holy Names University. She is a music teacher by day but a bad-ass musician by night.

Label: Jasmine Records | Release Year: 2016

There have been several CDs of Lula's King and Federal material but there has never been a complete collection. The 30 tracks that Jasmine have gathered here also include six sides released on the Chess subsidiary Argo Records which have rarely been re-issued. So if you own any of the compilations of her work issued in the CD era you will need this CD to complete your collection through to 1962. Features her sought after gospel recordings such as "Heavenly Road" along with the rock and roll favourite "Bump On A Log". Sadly Lula Reed withdrew herself from the music industry in 1964 never to return but this excellent new CD once again shows us what a superb and versatile talent she was.
