If you've heard the live show of this album, you know that she and her band are one of the most unique, talented and politically important musicians of our time. She has been for years!
As a small child in the 1970's, I watched Buffy on Sesame Street, and she was my favorite of the human characters. As an adult now, I am curious to learn more about Buffy's music. This retrospective CD seemed like a good place to start, since it includes songs from different points in Buffy's career. The liner notes include lyrics, photos, and statements from Buffy on what each song means to her. I fell in love with the compilation and listened to it over and over again until i had exhausted all my renewals and had to return the disc to the library. The songs are unique, innovative, powerful, and fun to sing along with. My favorites are: the powwow song "We Are Circling," the breakup song "Not the Lovin' Kind," the lullaby "Ke Sakihitin Awasis," and the love song "Farm in the Middle of Nowhere."

A fantastic CD, definitely one of her best.
I was curious to hear this as I didn't know Buffy was still recording. An album that shows her evolving musical style with this being 'rockier' than a lot of her earlier recordings that I am more familiar with. With a few playings of this I think I still prefer her folky,acoustic style as her voice is so distinctive and some of that is lost with this release.
