Beautiful Collection of Goffin's Finest

This album is a compilation of remastered/remixed tracks from several of Louise Goffin's previously released records along with some new outstanding releases. The entire album beautifully showcases Louise's mellifluous vocals.

Each time I listen, I am awed by the beauty of Louise's rendition of the classic "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman". Her vocals on this Goffin-King hit are among the finest and, yes, I know the company she's in as I share that opinion. For me, the passion she brings to this iconic song evokes the sense that it was written for her voice, for her to bring to it the amazing rendering she offers. She completely slays it. You've got to hear this track to believe me.

Among my other favorites are "It's Not the Spotlight", "If I'm Late", and "Take a Giant Step", all from one of my all time most listened to releases, Louise's beautifully executed 2015 EP "Appleonfire"; "Main Street Parade" and "Some of Them Will Fool You" from her extraordinary 2014 full length album "Songs From the Mine"; and "Archives" from her outstanding 2008 album "Bad Little Animals". Notable too for its nuanced lyrics and musical arrangement is a new track entitled "Devil's Door".

Yes, she is not only imbued with talent; she's prolific as well and for that we are fortunate!!
Louise Goffin is an extraordinary singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. This album is a treasure highlighting her multitude of talents. You're truly going to love this record!

She started playing piano at age six and by age eight, she was writing her own songs; however, she was painfully shy of singing. She tried her hand at a recording career anyway, releasing Kid Blue in 1979. A self-titled effort followed in 1981 and a year later, Goffin contributed "Uptown...
