  1. Lovely is the word. This version of It’s Over is lovelier than the version on the BEF album. Thanks for these.

  2. Wonderful stuff!!
    Give Me Time is devastating – chilling every time I hear it.
    Anacostia Bay is Billy at full power, adding his signature and ideas to other artists open to his kind of musical world. It’s deep and dark, but there’s an insistent beauty in Billy’s delivery over the driving, droning music.
    Billy owns Baltimore – it’s just that simple.
    It’s Over – Orchestral – operatic, over the top and oh so fabulously BILLY!
    Eurocentric – Billy manages to tease some drama out of a dance floor banger.
