EDITORS’ NOTES

With quiet eloquence and smoldering outrage, Tracy Chapman made protest music relevant to Reagan-era audiences. Chapman’s heartwrenching-yet-dignified contralto can be filled with defiance (“Talkin’ Bout A Revolution”), longing (“Mountains O’ Things”), or resolve (“For My Lover”). But her incredible gift as a storyteller makes this breakthrough sound just as transcendent decades later.
