Cambridge 1992 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Cambridge Folk Festival, Cambridge, UK; July 1992. Excellent FM broadcast.

There is something rather reassuring about Nanci Griffith that even when she is admonishing you, you don’t walk away feeling like you’ve been taken down a couple of pegs. That’s probably how one feels after listening to Griffith’s new album, Intersection, which was released on April 10.

David Belcher in The New York Times said that Intersection… “is a continuation of her usual blend of politics, emotion and a dusting of rebellion. Hell No (I’m Not Alright) deals with economic doldrums many listeners will relate to right now, no matter their country.” “That song belongs to everyone,” Griffith had said.

And for those who want that proverbial group hug before encountering Intersection, here are some classics from her collection. Just think of these as comfort food.

Thanks to the person who shared this show on the net in 2004.

  4. For those obsessive about labeling their musical tracks - the 1992 Cambridge Folk Festival ran from 31 July to 2 Aug 1992, so if the July date is accurate, it was the 31st.

    If her performance ran past midnight, I don’t want to know …

    Nanci is a favorite at our house - thanks for this.
