Jennifer Warnes
Famous Blue Raincoat

  (Item #: warnefamou_1810_3) 

Our Price: $279.99

  • A stunning copy of this longtime audiophile favorite, with superb Double to Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound on side one and Double Plus (A++) on side two
  • Turn this copy up good and loud (which you can do when the sound is right) and you'll have a living, breathing Jennifer Warnes standing right between your speakers
  • The space, resolution, and clarity here are wonderful - for evidence just look to the rosiny texture on the string arrangement of the Song of Bernadette
  • 4 1/2 stars on Allmusic: "The high point may have been the Warnes-Cohen duet on "Joan of Arc," but the album was consistently impressive."
