General comments:

she has a beautiful, heavenly voice, is a fantastic singer/songwriter, and her catalog deserves to be heard by everyone in the world. "Some of her songs," as noted on a sticker on her first solo LP, Karla Bonoff, "have the timeless feel of classics." An understatement if I've ever read one, but nice to read nonetheless, because it certainty is so true. (alundra@netos.com)

I don't feel she has ever gotten the recognition she deserves for her voice or her songwriting. (9/95, ptv@rtp.scm-metals.com)

Recommended first album:

The best of would be a good start
