General comments:

the embryonic band of karla bonoff, wendy waldman, andrew gold and kenny edwards. all new songs that have me very interested in their as-yet-unreleased-but-recorded album from before they went their separate ways in 1970. take fleetwood mac from the early lindsey buckingham/stevie nicks days, take away the unstable personalities and you have an idea of what bryndle is like. one *big* thumb. (

it's a group that originally existed in the '70s but didn't go anywhere, and was mysteriously resurrected to much success. The tracks I've heard didn't completely bowl me over, but I would recommend it to people who like the whole crunchy folk-rock, Lone Justice meets Knots And Crosses sort of thing. (

Comments about live performance:
