1979's SAFE AT ANCHOR, Kate Wolf's third album, marks some important changes in her career. No longer supported by the bluegrass-inspired backing group the Wildwood Flower, Wolf is able to toy with her arrangements more, running the gamut from simple guitar and voice to the use of tasteful strings and Celtic harps. More importantly, this is also Wolf's first album of all original material, and her first not to be recorded live in a home studio.
The resulting improved sound only adds to the power of Wolf's advanced songwriting. Her lyrics, less rooted in standard folk tropes, and using much more poetic language--"She Rises Like the Dolphin" is a triumph--are far beyond 1976's BACK ROADS or even 1977's LINES ON THE PAPER; similarly, her melodies are more unique and rich. The closing "Two-Way Waltz" is stunning, one of the most emotionally affecting songs of Wolf's career.
