Joyce is a joy to listen to.

What a lovely story of her life. Her insight on her watching and listening in her early life has given her a wonderful basis for her monologues and songs. The introductory song on this book makes you want to dance, it is a waltz, with happiness. The words are lovely. I am just sorry I never saw her live.
