Other Female Singers

  1. The best female singer of the last twenty years for me. The soulfulness, the singular phrasing and power are unmatched. Back to Black is a masterpiece of music, and she has plenty of other gems.

  2. In December 1983 when I came home from college for the Christmas break, I purchased "What's New" along with "Voice of the Heart". I loved Linda's collaboration with Nelson Riddle and mourned if only Richard and Karen had put out a similar album in 1980 after their "Music, Music, Music" special. I also purchased "Lush Life" and "For Sentimental Reasons". In the late 1980's, I started buying Gloria Estefan's recordings along with Linda's.

    Love Is A Losing Game is gorgeous. Amy's vocal is a masterpiece and the string pattern is absolutely divine. Listening to the line "so professed, profound/til the chips were down" and the strings that accompany it takes me right into Carpenters goosebumps territory. Karen could really have sung this well.
     
  5. That song takes me to another world. I mean, the whole album does, but this was like a modern standard without any irony underlying it; it could be sung by any singer and have the same emotional impact, despite being deeply personal for Amy herself.

    Aside from anything Judith Durham sang, this is quite possibly the prettiest song of the 1960s.
