Comments:

Carmen Lundy has a deep, smooth voice and her band is wonderfully fluid. Her mix of covers and originals is a treat for the ears, giving the singer a great sound.
     "Grace" the duet with Simphiwe Dana is indeed graceful and deeply felt, a simply lovely song.
     "What's your story. Morning Glory" is a lovely cover done with real soul.
     It's a great album. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
