One of the many anthologies of previously-unheard material released after Kate Wolf's 1986 death from leukemia, 1994's LOOKING BACK AT YOU is Wolf at her simplest. Largely unadorned, with only occasional and unobtrusive backing by three guitarist pals (not all at the same time) including longtime collaborator Nina Gerber, these 12 songs focus almost entirely on Wolf's angelic voice and sturdy melodies.
LOOKING BACK AT YOU was mostly recorded at the legendary McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, and the cozy venue adds greatly to the intimacy of these quietly powerful performances. Unlike most of Wolf's albums, LOOKING BACK AT YOU consists mostly of covers, ranging from familiar Jackson Browne and Leonard Cohen tunes to a pair of traditional folk songs, and a cover of Utah Phillips' obscure anthem "Rock Salt and Nails." Of the three originals, the sorrowful title track is the highlight.
