Thank you for the kind words!   As this is Dakota Live's first national 
release, we're humbled by the praise and Barbara is thrilled.   We feel that she 
deserves that kind of attention, and hope this CD helps raise her to a new and 
higher level of public awareness and to more fans hearing her great music.   As 
Jim Wilke commented, she's "the real deal."

As you can guess from the CD, recording three nights of Barbara, Houston and 
Junior was a blast.
