Seems like on more than a few occasions I’ve been caught comparing Christian female folk-singers to Joan Baez (which probably speaks more to my limited knowledge of folk music than to who they really sound like). Well this girl really really does sound like Joan Baez. Barbara Sipple (aka Barbie) keeps her folk music sweet and simple, the way it oughta be done. She’s assisted solely by two acoustic guitarists, a bass and one appearance of banjo. Five of the eight songs have a few friends (including kids) in the background casually joining in on the choruses. Those songs are fine, but the better ones have just Barbie singing without any backups (‘The Lord Is The Keeper’, ‘Don’t You Go Tryin’ and the especially beautiful ‘Living Bread’). Often one guitar strumming while another picks out the lead. Has a wonderful live gathered-around-the-fireplace warmth to it that makes me wish I’d been there singin’ along.      (The Archivist, 4th edition  by Ken Scott).
