Judy serves up nine tasty songs. Most of these are introspective, but then she is known for that. There is no stridency, no campaigning ... this is a gentle record full of good songs that are often genial reminders of the various joys and problems of life. Judy also covers the songs of other people: The song, "Cook with Honey" by Valerie Carter is worth the price of admission. Stephen Stills' song "So Begins the Task" shows that Collins can choose fine material. And, of course, Judy, herself, displays strong song-writing skills ... Check out "Fishermen Song" and "Song for Martin".
Through them all is Judy's beautiful voice ... assured, soft, gentle .... insistent.
