Folk legend Malvina Reynolds was a woman who lived and wrote about life to the fullest, celebrating the wonder of living but pulling no punches when she encountered injustice. Many who grew up in the 1960s will recall "What Have the Done to the Rain?" a poignant Reynolds protest song that Joan Baez made popular. Rosalie Sorrels, who like Reynolds came to folk music as a second career and subsequently befriended the older artist, is a veteran performer with more than four decades of music to her credit. She has the perfect voice to interpret Reynolds's wry and pointed tales, including "Rosie Jane," "This World" (with Bonnie Raitt on slide guitar), and "Money Crop." Guitarist Nina Gerber's tasteful production gives Sorrels' rough-edged voice room to explore Reynolds' heartfelt tales, with help from such guests as the aforementioned Raitt, Laurie Lewis, and Barbara Higbie.
