Blues Society, March 2003
"These are mellow blues. I listened to this disc with my feet
up, in front of the fire and sipping red wine. It is a perfect release
for those mellow occasions. As the liner notes state, these tunes
are raw. Blues Babe is a solo effort on which former Colorado resident
Olga plays guitar and sings. Her voice is very sultry. I particularly
like her singing on 'One Good Thing' and 'The Way We Were' (an original,
not the Streisand pop hit). She has a low but dynamic vocal style
and on 'The Way We Were' she phrases a quick rise in tone that sticks
with you. Her guitar playing compliments her voice quite well - nothin'
fancy, but all blues. This is an excellent solo blues CD. You can
order the disc through her website, www.laolga.com or pick up a copy
when she comes to Colorado this summer."
