Album Review

David Rubinson's production of Phoebe Snow on the 1976 release It Looks Like Snow is an overpowering collection of pop-jazz-funk-folk that puts this amazing vocalist's talents in a beautiful light. Whether it's the Bowen/Bond/Hazel blues classic "Shakey Ground," which Elton John, Etta James, and so many others have explored, or her exquisite interpretation of the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down," there is no doubt the material here should have ruled on the airwaves the year after her Top Five smash, "Poetry Man." How could Columbia Records not have this material saturating radio across America is the question. There are string arrangements by Sonny Burke and horn arrangements by Kurt McGettrick; the guests galore — from David Bromberg and Ray Parker, Jr. on guitars (along with Snow, Greg Poree, and Steve Burgh) to David Pomeranz on keys — make the Snow/Pomeranz co-write "Mercy on Those" into a majestic and extra-special showstopper. The singer's solo composition "Drink Up the Melody (Bite the Dust, Blues)" has her dipping into Maria Muldaur territory, and a duet between the two divas here would've been sensational. "My Faith Is Blind," soaked in gospel introspection, takes the album to another level with its soul searching and sense of spiritual discovery. It Looks Like Snow is a major work from a fabulous performer traversing styles and genres with ease and elegance.

Power and Grace

I love female vocalists with great character in their voices. Phoebe Snow is not a household name but this album is a wonderful showcase for her immense talent. Teach Me Tonight is the pure winner here, with My Girlish Ways and Don't Let Me Down close behind. iTunes classifies this as Pop and it's anything but - blues, jazz, R&B. FYI, you might recognize her voice on Paul Simon's great version of Gone At Last on his Crazy After All These Years album.


the only word I can think of to describe this incredibly talented lady. She gave up her career to tend to a severely brain-damaged daughter, but as far as I am concerned, she has only gotten better with age. Give her newer albums a test. You'll be pleased. Phoebe, you are the ultimate when it comes to music!

Hey iTunes!....

the name of the song is "Fat Chance", not Fat Change. How about a little editing?

Renowned for her elastic contralto and jazz scat vocal gymnastics, singer Phoebe Snow was born Phoebe Laub on July 17, 1952, in New York City. During her childhood in Teaneck, NJ, she initially studied piano, but switched to the guitar in her teens, writing poetry that gradually mutated into her first songs. Overcoming her stage fright, Snow began playing Greenwich Village clubs in the early '70s, honing an eclectic set that spotlighted both folk and pop sounds as well as jazz, blues, and even torch...
