Walking In The Sun heralded a new direction for one of Europe's finest voices. With many magical moments all compellingly sung, this is Barb Jungr at her most magnificent. 

Originally released in 2006 Walking In The Sun has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue.

Download includes - cover art, inlay, booklet

‘Her voice is truly a thing of wonder, and it nicely ranges over Dylan's Trouble in Mind, the traditional Run On and more.' Daily Express  

‘Her most compellingly sung and intensely vital collection to date.' Jazzwise  

‘If Randy Newman is the thinking person's pop singer, Barb Jungr occupies a similar niche in this country.' The Sunday Times 

‘Jungr has the creativity, skill, and shrewd sense which put her into that select category of artists whom we're eager to hear cover songs.' High Fidelity Review  

Drawing on influences from a wide range of musical traditions, including gospel and the blues, the album is Jungr's most accessible release to date. Jungr brings her decidedly creative and imaginative style to Carole King's Way Over Yonder, Jimmy Cliff's Many Rivers to Cross and, of course, her trademark re-workings of Dylan songs: Trouble in Mind and Blind Willie McTell.  There is also a new song by Eric Bibb, Heading Home, which sees the legendary guitarist make a guest appearance on the track.

Booklet Note:

Who Do You Love?
With my Mojo Hand, a new house with a skull chimney and a cobra snake necktie that was too good to lose, a song about the wildest kind of faith.

Trouble in Mind
It's hard to imagine making an album without more great Bob Dylan songs on it - this is a gospel and a blues song at the same time. It came knocking and wouldn't go away.

Beautiful Life
I wrote this with Adrian York some time ago and isn't life odd, because since then wherever I go I keep seeing dolphins.

Drink Me Up
This came in a flash when I was thinking of the old tent shows and all the forgotten women blues singers. So it is a tribute to them and to their celebration of life, men/women and song.

Walking in Memphis
In a pizza restaurant in Salisbury around the corner from the cathedral, red wine with Stuart and Sandy, and this came on the speakers. Stuart said "This is great, listen!". So I did.

Walking in the Sun
Claire Martin told me about this song when we were driving back from a Girl Talk gig in Norfolk. She lent me a CD, and I heard two lines and thought, this is special.

Rainy Day
This Brownie McGhee song came to me via John Morrison. I loved the subtle little changes in it and made a couple of lyrical alterations. Sometimes we sing the blues from other perspectives.

Take Out Some Insurance
Talking to Helen Watson in the car on the way back from a gig, we got onto Little Jimmy Reed and I'd forgotten that I used to sing this song when I was working with Michael Parker. So in part, it's for him, too. I learned a lot from him.

Run on for a Long Time / God's Song
This is, in part, an homage to Sweet Honey In The Rock and it's coupled with the Randy Newman song just so everyone is clear that any notions of faith I applaud are inclusive, many and varied. From the cobra snake necktie to the many arms of Durga, maybe we need a bigger sky these days.

Blind Willie McTell
This song is Dylan paying homage to St James Infirmary Blues and this is me paying homage to him.

Many Rivers to Cross
Jimmy Cliff is underrated - beautiful songwriting and humanity. This made me think of the image of the English white cliffs of Dover, which my father-in-law saw on the ship over from Guyana. He wept because they symbolised all he had been told about England. Then he lived there and really got what it was like.

Heading Home
Eric Bibb kindly let me record this. I heard it and loved it and he said it came all in one to him. It feels like that when I sing it too. Thank you, Eric.

Way Over Yonder
Ian Shaw suggested this song, and he was right about it.
