Closer To The Ground. 2. Blues For A Friend. 3. New Colorado Blues. As good & rich as their debut album was, the Joy of Cooking upped their game considerably with this second release, laying down funkier grooves & singing with enough passion & tenderness & longing to tear out anyone's soul. As before, Toni brings the folkier element to the album (though she can get into the rhythm like nobody's business when she wants), while Terry brings her bluesy, jazzy side, all sass & broken-hearted aching; and as before, they blend to perfection

Consumer Guide Album. Joy of Cooking: Closer to the Ground I knew Toni Brown was a folkie, so it shouldn't surprise me that a lot of this is organic bullshit gone to rhythm school-the title of the title cut speaks for itself, and "Sometimes Like a River" might also be like a "Rainbow," "Mountain," or "New Wind" (adjectival scansion, they. call that trick in rhythm school)

Joy of Cooking is the first album by the American band Joy of Cooking formed in 1967 in Berkeley, California. The album peaked at 100 on the Billboard 200 in 1971. In Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies (1981), Robert Christgau wrote of the album: All songs written by Toni Brown unless otherwise noted. Hush" (Traditional) – 2:50.
