Really dig these earlier four HB albums. Usually, for the very few artists I admire this immensely, I have been there from the beginning, pre-ordering each new album or buying it as soon as it is released. Discovering Erika just this summer and being blown away first by Sweet Unknown and a few weeks later by Restless Ones, I then bought the previous 4 albums as well and have been listening to them from oldest to newest as a 43-song loop to catch up on what I missed – fascinating to experience both the progression and the continuity of the artist’s music over time. She sings the hell out of the songs on Stairs and Elevators, a perfect voice for that rock power trio and for the cool and captivating delivery of her genuine, relevant and keen lyrics. All four albums are a must-have for the library. All four albums are loaded with gems.
