'Barb Jungr confirms her reputation as a peerless interpreter of the classic modern song with this, her third album for Linn.' Jazz at Ronnie Scott's
‘Jungr navigates the soft-flowing tide of Ray Davies' title tune with wistful contentment.' Jazz Times
‘Her version of Waterloo Sunset shines out.' Daily Telegraph
Critics uniformly adored Barb Jungr's reflective rendition of Ray Davies' title track which sets the tone for this engagingly eclectic collection, startling both for its emotional intensity and rich musicality. Described by the Daily Telegraph as a ‘world-class female vocalist' Barb is also an accomplished songwriter and contributes three original songs: Do You Play Guitar, the album's elegiac opening track, Written Down In The Dark Again, a disturbing exploration of sex, and Lipstick Lips Lament, a wonderful evocation of classic American song-writing.
