"Taste of Danger"

I too, love Jonatha Brooke. She's my favorite female singer/songwriter.

Jonatha actually wrote the lyrics for "Taste of Danger". It's one of two songs on "The Works" in which the lyrics were written by Jonatha. Woody Guthrie was responsible for the others.

Thanks!

Kevin

Re: "Taste of Danger"

Aha. Thanks! That's too funny - I had that thought, but I didn't have the liner notes on hand, so I didn't want to leave Woody off if it was correct!

Jonatha

I just saw her in concert here in Portland in August. It was probably my 15th time seeing her live. Have you had a chance to catch one of her shows? She's AMAZING live.

Re: Jonatha

Wow! Sadly, no, I've never been able to see her live.

Now I'm singing Glass Half-Empty because she sings of a Kevin that song!
