All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
In 1984, Holly Near and Ronnie Gilbert released Lifeline, a collection of live recordings captured at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. The eight shows between April 28-31 would serve as a comeback for Gilbert who had been part of the Weavers and a chance for two politically committed women to join forces. In 2002, Near revisited the tapes to produce Lifeline Extended, a two-disc set that adds songs, banter, and crowd response to the original. Near wanted to capture the richness of these live performances, and in this purpose she was more than successful. Indeed, the expansion of the set only reinforces the first album's strengths.

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
In 1984, Holly Near and Ronnie Gilbert released Lifeline, a collection of live recordings captured at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. The eight shows between April 28-31 would serve as a comeback for Gilbert who had been part of the Weavers and a chance for two politically committed women to join forces. In 2002, Near revisited the tapes to produce Lifeline Extended, a two-disc set that adds songs, banter, and crowd response to the original. Near wanted to capture the richness of these live performances, and in this purpose she was more than successful. Indeed, the expansion of the set only reinforces the first album's strengths. First, Near and Gilbert are powerful singers, capable of fine solo vocals and perfectly matched harmonies. There are old favorites like "Goodnight Irene" and "Pastures of Plenty," and heartfelt commemorations of heroes like Stephen Biko in "Biko" and "Harriet Tubman." This political tone also includes direct comment on disarmament "Family Promises", racism "No More Genocide", and homophobia "Singing for Our Lives". The piano dominates the production, adding a theatrical air to these purposeful folk songs. For those familiar with the first album, the addition will be warmly welcomed; for others, feminists, liberals, and folk music lovers, Lifeline Extended offers a good introduction to the work of Near and Gilbert.

    A jewel in the music industry

    After attending one of the concerts, I rushed out and bought the cassette. Yesterday, it finally self-destructed, so here I am for the 2-CD set...and thrilled! I've been listening to these remarkable women for more than 20 years and I never tire of their voices or their messages.
