DOWN BEAT original review: ABBEY IS BLUE
“When all the ingredients are blended – Miss Lincoln’s voice and interpretation, the lyrics and music, the soulful work of all the musicians – you have, I believe, one of the most artistically satisfying vocal albums to be had. Recommended for those with souls. (Don De Michael)
