IOWA CITY PRESS-CITIZEN: “Boasting gorgeous close harmonies and
unsinkable tunefulness, Emma’s Revolution (the Emma is Goldman) is a
classic, globetrotting folk duo comprised of activist
singer/songwriters Sandy O and Pat Humphries. Their music is
progressive, socially-conscious, confrontational and shot-through with
intelligence and cutting humor. . . .Newest disc ‘Revolutions Per
Minute’ is a front-to-back gem.”
