Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Listen to Maya Angelou read more than 100 of her best loved poems - for the first time in one collection.

"As good as Angelou's books are, you just have to hear her." - Philadelphia Inquirer


Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie
(30 minutes, 27 poems)
James Baldwin called Maya Angelou's first collection of poems "Black, bitter, and beautiful. [Maya Angelou] speaks of our survival.  Sister Maya has been there and back, she knows something about herself and she knows something about us . . ."

Oh Pray My Wings Are Gonna Fit Me Well
(35 minutes, 36 poems)
The poems in this second volume of Maya Angelou's poetry are eloquent evidence of the poet's continuing celebration of life.  Here are poems of love and memory, poems of racial confrontation, poems of misplaced patriotism, songs of the street and songs of the heart.

I Shall Not Be Moved
(40 minutes, 32 poems)
A wonderful collection of poems including the classic "Our Grandmothers", one of Maya Angelou's best known and best loved poems.  I Shall Not Be Moved captures the pain and triumph of being black and tells of history and heartbreak and love.

On the Pulse of Morning
(10 minutes, 1 poem)
This Inaugural Poem brought our nation to its feet on January 20, 1993, and sent Maya Angelou to the podium to accept the Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word recording.  "The Audio version is the best way to experience On the Pulse of Morning." raved the Los Angeles Times.
Amazon.com Review
This collection includes more than 100 unabridged poems from three previously released volumes: Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'Fore I Die, Oh Pray My Wings Are Gonna Fit Me Well, and I Shall Not Be Moved. "On the Pulse of Morning," the Grammy-winning poem written for President Clinton's 1993 inauguration, completes the set. Angelou reads the pieces herself, making each word--sometimes fierce, sometimes soft, but always moving--even lovelier with her velvety voice. This collection is a must-have for all Maya Angelou fans. Listen to Maya Angelou read "Worker's Song." Visit our audio help page for more information. (Running time: 2 hours, 4 cassettes) --C.B. Delaney
