Her voice has deepened a bit from the days of her 1970s hits like "Midnight at the Oasis," but, 30 years down the road, Maria Muldaur's sound is as rich and soulful as ever. This 2008 release, featuring the Women's Voice for Peace Choir, centers on the themes of saving the environment, ending international conflicts, and living peacefully. The track list balances protest chestnuts (Edwin Starr's "War," Bob Dylan's "Masters of War") with stirring and uplifting hymns of hope (Allen Toussaint's rousing title track, Garth Brooks's "We Shall Be Free"), and includes appearances by some unlikely background singers: self-help gurus Marianne Williamson and Amma, actor Jane Fonda, and writers Anne Lamott and Jean Shinoda Bolen, as well as folk singers Holly Near and Joan Baez.
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (pp.58-59) - "Muldaur's voice has taken on a road-weary huskiness that suits the music well, reminiscent of the gospel strains of Mavis Staples, that lend an authority missing in her previous work."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A grower, the album plugs into the energy of her earlier works and is a startling artistic left turn for Muldaur."
