    I sometimes think it's her best. Both sides of that album are extremely strong. Hejira, to my ears, has the strongest side A of all her records, but things kind of slacken a bit on the side B ("Sharon" just kind of drags on for over 8 minutes without much direction, quite a letdown). "Hissing of the summer lawns" kicks off strong, and keeps it up till the very last note on "Shadows and Light". Amazing, vital and essential piece of music!
    Don't you just hate it when you cannot detect where the post ends and a signature line begins?

    Is very well produced and seems to cover the full range in quite well separated instruments so makes it quite easy to compare systems, I also know it pretty well so memory is good.
