This is her first album solo and what an album it is. For those into Velvet Belly it is a must have. It has been played quite a bit around here since I bought it. Amazing and beautiful album and so her voice is as wonderful as always for those who remember her in her Velvet Belly days. (onealien@mo.himolde.no)
