    i was just typing about the 'point of no return' soundtrack and it made me remember that there's about 4 songs from her on it.

    i think the music is great. i love her soulful voice...she seems so depressed. perfect music for those melancholy times!

    i've been wanting to pick up some of her stuff, but there's several compilation albums out there...each a little different. i think some are on different labels too.

    so...does anyone have any recommendations? i'm not necessarily looking for compilation stuff, just a great album!

    She sure looks damned hip, but I've yet to give her a shot. My mom used to listen to her back in the day, and is very happy her music is so prevalent on cd. All I can say is that while Christmas shopping I came across at least two double album cds from way back. I also am not a big fan of compilations, and was very tempted to pick these up and give her a try, but, I was being good.
    I think these were the ones I saw...

    cool ben! i wasn't aware of these double-album configs. looks like i'll have to do some more research! sounds like the pastel blues combo might do the trick!
