No Gender Discussion Necessary!
For the past 4 decades, 'Pearl' -- ( Janis, of course ) has topped my list of all time favourite female artist albums! This changed, upon one listen to this magnificent release! Giving a rundown of the three discs is completely unnecessary here, as many have already done so, and articulately as well. What I will say, is that Ana's straddling of genres, her song writing skills, the arrangements of the material, and her marvellous confidence is spread across the whole package, like the finest Beluga on bread, or Jam on the perfect Scone! Her guitar playing has been of such a high standard for many years, and this is now matched by her vocal delivery, which has just been waiting for the chance to clamber onto the same rung! Now, we have Ana presenting us with songs that don't even feature her guitar, and they slot comfortably into the whole with seamless efficiency. I adore this release, as does my wife ( Anna also ). We saw her play in Sydney a few weeks ago, and she completely blew us away. There is now no need for gender discussion, as she delivers her music with the same intensity, quality and excellence as her peers and idols. Bravo, Mrs P ---- a work of timeless beauty!Read full review
