Brother, where are you?


  1. Beautiful, hadn't heard that one. That must be very long ago, at least 1980, possibly earlier. I'm more familiar with her as an older singer, and lots of people didn't like the sound of the harsher, duskier Abbey, although I find it just as beautiful as this young, 'purer' sort of sound. I couldn't believe how shocked I was that she had died, but although she was 80, I thought she was maybe 10 years younger. I think she was working on some of the more recent clips as recently as the last few months. In any case, that photo in this clip is older, but the singing has to be at least 30 years ago. I think the 'Throw it Away' may have been in the last 10 years, or maybe 15.
