I love the sound of her voice. Oumou Sangare has something of the same timbre in her voice; a west African thing?
The arrangement of Love and Affection stopped me in my tracks when I first heard it.
Joan has so many great songs.
Joan is a spectacular writer, musician, and performer. Thank you for this post. I will now have to pull out Secret Secrets and The Key for the weekend.
Don't get the "West African" connection to Joan, an English woman via St Kitts in the Carribean.
much love for Joan since 81'...thx for posting....goin' to dig out the vinyl now.
Her recent stuff is a lot more bluesy, she plays nice electric lead. Always liked Joanie.
Yes! She's a great lead player as well. Lately,, she has been playing Anderson guitars. Great tone
Not so much an ethnic connection as a sonic one. Have you heard Oumou Sangare's voice?
I was really into Joan's stuff in the 80's, but the records all went in the great 90's vinyl purge
After listening to a couple of these clips, I really have no idea why I haven't been listening to her for the last 15 years.
lots of love and affection here. thanks for posting.
She was one of my favourites in the 80s, still relevant. I loved "The Weakness in Me", personally.
Best song about a love triangle, ever. Not to mention Pino Palladino tearing it up, on fretless bass.
We had "Willow" at our wedding ceremony. Left out the second verse, tho. <g>
Some great stuff -
Was always a fan ---- but that seems like so long ago.
Down to zero is one of my all time favorite songs - there's just something special about it.
Seriously. . . . one of the most soulful female guitarists. Check this out. From Live at Abbey Road
