All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
It's been said many times that being difficult to categorize or pigeonhole can be the kiss of death commercially, and no one bears that out more than Phoebe Snow -- a pearl of a singer who never caught on because she simply didn't fit neatly into any one category. Known primarily for her haunting single "Poetry Man," this self-titled classic which was recorded in 1973 and released on LP in 1974 found the earthy vocalist drawing on everything from folk and pop to soul, jazz, and blues.
