there are some truly wonderful songs on here, but the compilation also puts on a lot of schloc. almost all of her later work, i feel, is terrible - all her synthetic stuff, ick! and there's a fair amount of it on here. i've owned this album (in record form) for five or six years, and there are just some songs NOT WORTH EVER LISTENING TO.
now, all that said, for the wonderful songs on here, the ones with buffy and a guitar (and sometimes with her bass player), they are just wonderful, truly a powerful musical and emotional experience. universal soldier is up there with the best of em, as in "now that the buffalo's gone" and "my country tis of thy people you're dying" and "many a mile." buffy is raw power, and don't be fooled, she's one hell of a talented musician as well, highly sophisticated both in voice and on guitar.
i just wish i'd been 28 back in the mid sixties...
she's raw woman, raw human, just raw! (but that later stuff, god, what was she thinking?)
