      Pamela Lillard's bluesy urban folk-rock lands her in a ballpark with Vega, Armatrading, Cockburn, and a few others who've rescued forgotten kernels of coolness from the mudheap of outdated singer-songwriter cliches; her best songs are disarmingly concise pop tunes free of the narcissistic indulgence that gave "sensitive" balladeers such a bad name in the 1970s.

    • 1988 January 22, Jonathan Rosenbaum, “Huckleberry Fem”, Chicago Reader:
      It is the kind of nonegotistical performance, moreover, that allows her to fit in a period context without any hint of anachronism--a virtue she already displayed as Goldie Hawn's next-door neighbor in Swing Shift, and which Keaton conspicuously lacked as Louise Bryant in Reds.

    • 1988 January 22, Salim Muwakkil, “Pop: I'm Bad, Therfore I Am”, Chicago Reader:

  32. riffwise
    • 1988 January 22, Renaldo Migaldi, “Pamela Lillard & the Rubba Band”, Chicago Reader:
      The ever-changing Rubba Band plays arrangements that draw on gospel, folk, Latin, and R&B sources as much as from riffwise rock 'n' roll--but what otherwise might seem an excess of eclecticism is held together by Lillard's dramatic honey-and-vinegar voice, a gutsy instrument that keeps her from sounding wimpy when she downshifts into the more confessional side of her repertoire.
      add
  33. semiabstract
    • 1988 January 22, Jonathan Rosenbaum, “Huckleberry Fem”, Chicago Reader:

      Joe Guzaldo is, as always, a pleasure to watch and hear, with his superbly focused physical energy and virilely mellifluous voice; but his strength belies Tom's own weakness, which Williams revealed even while trying to conceal it.
      add
  39. waistcoated
    • 1988 January 22, Holly Greenhagen, “Art Facts: Ellen Lanyon's magic art”, Chicago Reader:
      Its mate, a waistcoated frog with a pipe, served as model for Strange Games at the Lagoon (the West).
