I think my favorite Kate Wolf song that Kate wrote, is "Across the Great Divide." But my favorite Kate recording is her medley of Redtail Hawk/Pacheco. Pacheco is a mountain pass between the Central Valley and Monterey, California. It's kind of a mystical place for me, with the hawks and buzzards soaring on the wind currents.
And at the summit of the pass is a really huge and tacky fruit stand, Casa de Fruta. And beyond is Hollister, earthquake capital of California, the town that was taken over by the Hells Angels motorcycle gang one day in the 60s.
Kate tells the tale of many parts of California that I love.
-Joe-


Purple clouds turn scarlet in the setting sun
Where sagebrush turns to alive oak
And the white tail run
The air is cool as music
When the day is done
And God paints the sky above Pacheco

Driving all day up the San Joaquin
Turn west again, up through Pacheco

Through the blue hills back of Santa Cruz
We're rolling fine
Where red tail hawks go circling
Like the ways of time
And lovers and friends will meet again
'Round red Sonoma wine
And God calls the night above Pacheco

Driving all day up the San Joaquin
Turn west again, up through Pacheco

However, for me, one of her most deeply moving songs is this one :


"The Heart" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URV_EiNm0qw

Well.. if we limit it to her own songs, I like The Trumpet Vine....
but if I may be allowed, I really enjoyed her singing one that Utah Phillips wrote. "Aces, Straights and Flushes". She sang it the one time she performed for FSGW and I stole it! Then the only recording of it I know of was put on #3 of the Utah Phillips 4 volume set.

I'll second the nomination of Pacheco/Redtail Hawk, with honorable mention to The Ballad of Weaverville. For songs she wrote, Give Yourself to Love.

Someone put words to the old fiddle tune Midnight on the Water and Kate did a lovely job singing it.

I will admit that I am not a huge fan of Kate Wolf's writing. I liked her singing but not all of her songs. That said, when she hit the mark she was right on target. I also will admit I haven't heard her songs in 20 years nor have I heard all she wrote.

If Kate Wolf is someones intro to American Singer Songwriters, they had a good introduction. Utah Phillips and Rosalie Sorrels thought well of her and that's a pretty good cheering section.

My top five are The Trumpet Vine, Carolina Pines, Eyes of a Painter, Across The Great Divide, and Emma Rose.

Don, the first paragraph of your post above exactly describes my opinion of and my experience of KW and her music. Uncanny.
