what the critics are saying

“A captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960s to the early '70s. Ms. McGovern is blessed with a vocal technique second to none.”
–The New York Times

Top Ten Vocal Album of 2008
“An outstanding album in any year, with high quality production and arrangements, it's dignified yet vital, and makes us listen to many of these songs with new ears and new perspective.... A rich and moving experience that is very emotional.”
–Talkin' Broadway

Maureen McGovern
A Long and Winding Road

Maureen McGovern's recording career began in 1972 with her #1 chart-topping, Oscar-winning Gold Record "The Morning After," which earned her a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. She replicated this success two years later with another Oscar-winning Gold Record, "We May Never Love Like This Again," then made history in 1975 as the first singer to introduce two Oscar-nominated songs in the same year. To date, her career has spanned thirty-five years, including recordings, concerts, Broadway, films, television, radio and composing. With a voice that defies categorization from a jazzy, warm pop register to a crystalline coloratura she has earned a reputation for being one of America's most popular artists. Now her newest album, A LONG AND WINDING ROAD, finds Maureen reconnecting with the Baby Boomer songs that inspired her beginnings as a folk singer in the late 60s.

The album features an eclectic mix of classic and evocative tunes from such groundbreaking singer-songwriters as Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Webb, Paul Simon, Carole King, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Laura Nyro, whose songs comprise, as The New York Times has noted, the second half of the Great American Songbook. Its an introspective collection thats at once rousing, powerful, and always deeply moving, featuring timeless songs that will speak to music-lovers of all ages.
