Went to see her on Friday night in Guildford. Wow. Her voice is still as good as ever, such range and depth.


2:45 for the sax break :)

Good stuff - she is hard to classify (this clip from a folk festival) but has a great voice and writes interesting songs.

I recently bought one of her older albums because it featured Wesley Magoogan (of 'Will You ?' with Hazael O'Connor). Can you recommend another good Joan Armatrading album to start on ?

Hmmm, spotify is helping me here: I guess the following four early albums each have their sprinkling of what I would regard as iconic songs.

"Joan Armatrading" : Down to Zero, Love and Affection, and pretty much everything else ... is a must-have.

"Show Some Emotion": Woncha Come on Home, Opportunity, Willow

"Me Myself I": Me Myself I, Turn Out the Light, All the Way from America

"Walk Under Ladders": The Weakness in Me, No Love, Eating the Bear

I guess a "Best of" album would catch most of those, but I do think this was a time when albums were put together with care, and create a balanced journey, so "All of the Above" must be the right answer!

(And besides being a vocalist and songwriter, she is a mean guitarist).
