This week’s theme is ‘best guitar/bass solo”. Immediately I knew who I would choose to feature. I love this woman’s music…her vibe, especially on her first two CDs. However, a cut on her 2nd CD, “Peace Beyond Passion“, caused me to raise an eyebrow and created some inner conflict. Truthfully, I rarely played the CD after listening to “Leviticus: Faggot“…I put the CD away for a loooong time. Don’t worry, that track isn’t featured here. 🙂
