Holly Near & Ronnie Gilbert – Lifeline Extended (2002)


Based on the classic 1983 recording, Lifeline, by these two well known women’s and topical music artists, this 2 disc set of performances was drawn from a legendary concert at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. In many ways a “greatest hits” album from Holly and Ronnie, this expanded recording features seven additional tracks not available on the original. Included are Ronnie Gilbert classics from her days with the Almanac Singers and the Weavers and Holly Near’s more recent powerful songs of social commentary.  Released in 2002.
