Quote of the Day
July 21 2014 @ 7:37 am

"On stage, at the Albert Hall, she appeared tiny in the spotlight, wearing an electric blue jumpsuit. All at once, she tried to gather all of her audience inside herself, settling for nothing less: squeezing her voice dry, her arms pumping, her hands in fists." ...





She stumbled back from the microphone, as if at the rate of her and herband's own decibel volume. Then, somehow, and there's no way to explain how itwas achieved, the sound focused, and pointed down the auditorium like alocomotive, directed at and then into us in the audience. That is what couldn'tbe heard on record." - Geoffrey Cannon's retrospective in The Guardian, 1970
