Strange Paradise

Strange Paradise


Release Year: 1978/Reissued 2004
Label: Olivia/Reissued Wolf Moon Records
Format: CD

Much to the delight of her many fans, the long out-of-print follow-up to Changer and the Changed was finally available on CD from Wolf Moon Records, Cris' own label. If you don't know her work by now, this is a good place to start appreciating the many facets of her deep musical and poetic sensibilities. In addition to the haunting title track, it contains classically beautiful ballads such as Native Dancer as well as rock-and-roll power tunes like When Anger Takes the Wheel - which features Bonnie Raitt on slide guitar - speaking always of Nature and Spirit and Mystery.
