Barbra conquered the singer/songwriter era with this lovely, powerful album that has truly attained legendary status. Those who falsely claimed she was just copying the originals weren't listening closely enough. Take another spin of "if you could read my mind" and her brilliant, impassioned delivery and judge for yourself. Other classics include the title rocker, "no easy way down ", "maybe", "I'll be home". Every track is a winner under richard perry's out-of-the-box production and some sterling musicians and backup singers. We need a deluxe reissue with the alternate photos and any other goodies. One of the greatest cover photos in history!
