Barney Hoskyns, 'Small Town Talk' (Da Capo), Spring 2016

"I think it was Freddy who brought her up there," says Harvey Brooks, who'd played on her 1969 album It's So Hard to Tell Who's Going to Love You the Best. "That was a big part of it – getting away from the city, and maybe away from your demons."
