Review Format: CD
Release Year: 1997



Ok, so this album has been out for nearly a decade but it needed a review. Jen Cohen has an excellent voice and her interpretive skills are practically a masterclass.


Once you have heard her sing, you wonder why you had never heard of her before. Or since for that matter. Her cover of Gillian Welch's "Patiently Waiting" is beautifully executed. Likewise the exquisite version of "Song of Bernadette" that closes the album. "Are We There Yet, Mama?" is only bettered by the version on her 1999 album Far Enough Away.
