Hey thanks for the tip. I'm a big RLJ fan - I've seen her a few times in concert, the last one an acoustic concert (much like "Naked Songs"). Great stuff. Good to hear the latest effort is worth seeking out. I really didn't connect with her previous effort, "Sermon on Exposition Blvd.", which seemed rather rambling and disjointed.
She also does a song from long ago, written by her father Richard L. Jones called "The Moon Is Made Of Gold" that is just mesmerizing.
I didn't know her father wrote that. She does a great version of that song on the wonderful album, "Duets", accompanied by Rob Wasserman (whose album this is). There's a bunch of great stuff on that album too, but I think it is out of print right now.
Balm of Gilead is indeed another superb effort reminiscent of her self titled album to me.
Amazing sonics also for a redbook cd. I also look forward to a release on Vinyl at some point. Maybe MoFi as well!
Along with this new cd..I picked up one of her earlier albums "Magazine" and liked that very much.
