One of Tracy's finest albums

I remember when this album first was released...it was early 1970s, I was an undergraduate in Boston and this was the COOL album to own. Previously, Tracy had done some fine work with Mother Earth and this was her breakthrough solo album, originally on Columbia records. However, the first cut doesn't truly give you an idea of what's to come and neither does "the second cut, Love Has No Pride." "Love Has No Pride" is one of the most recorded songs of its day especially by female singers (Bonnie Raitt's version is the one you want). Tracy's version is solid but lacks the vulnerability the song needs. However, the album finds its groove on the third cut, "Hold an Old Friend's Hand" and it is a masterful vocal! This song builds to its chorus and exposes everything that Tracy's voice can deliver..BUT...its the next cut "Rock Me in Your Cradle" with its ski jump vocals at the end that will leave you bowled over...no one can sing like this...but Tracy does. I play this cut for friends who have never heard it and just watching their face when Tracy finishes the song off is amazing to watch. Dylan's "It Takes A Lot of Laugh...." is the funkiest version and downright fun. Tracy's duet with Willie Nelson on "After the Fire is Gone" is thunderous...try and catch Linda Ronstadt's backup vocals on the final chorus which adds more fire to this amazing recording. The songs that follow are terrific and Tracy closes the album by re-recording her signature song, "Down So Low" giving it an fresh update and a power all its own. THIS IS THE ALBUM TO START YOUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH TRACY NELSON. Then go right to her recordings in the 1990s...In the Here and Now, Move On and I Feel So Good for some of the best blues singing you will ever hear.

Tracy Nelson

One of my all time favorite albums even after all of these years. This woman's voice will rock you deep because it is truly powerful & unforgetable.

Like a Laid Back Janis Joplin, but she didn't die young.

Tracy Nelson wins my vote for best blues singer ever. Less charisma than Joplin but a better voice.

A very versatile and talented vocalist, Tracy Nelson is better known for her role as lead singer of Mother Earth. The Nashville sextet had three albums in a country-rock vein make the charts in the late '60s and early '70s. But Nelson is just as capable in soul, R&B, and blues, though she hasn't released many records in that style. Her albums for Flying Fish were more indicative of her eclecticism, but her R&B...
