Sandi Thom sings a lovely duet with Buffy Sainte-Marie, performing Buffy’s song “The Big Ones Get Away.”
The enchanting blend of voices and simple acoustic instruments is refreshingly distinct from the hypnotic, ethereal synthesizers and digital samples found on Sainte-Marie’s stunning original version.
This number is a single released for Sandi Thom’s album ‘Flesh and Blood.’
Thom’s duet with one of her influences, Buffy Sainte-Marie, on the latter’s “The Big Ones Get Away,” not only shines a spotlight on the off-the-radar Sainte-Marie and her terrific tune, but is only one highlight of this consistently inspiring dozen-tune set. – Hal Horowit, allmusic.com
