    And, man if you had a good youtube of her singing it that would be great.
    whoever "her" might be. :)

    It's for a singer friend of mine.

    Almost anything by Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth really.
    Cliff, they probably have all of it right next door if the youtube isn't cutting it for you.

    This is a solo performance, but the full band recording is great. Anything by E G Kight is perfect for a good female singer. Also Karen Lawrence and Blue By Nature have many good tunes.

    Candye Kane has some good ones too. She's quite a bit live, but she has a hell of a lot of fun.
