    Her music always put me in a good mood.Her voice was really beautiful!

    Really loved her albums “Phoebe Snow” and “Second Childhood.” But the first song of hers I think of is the gloriously bluesy/bouncy “Gone at Last” with Paul Simon, on which her distinctive voice makes such a great contribution. R.I.P.

    So sad, too short a life. I think it was last year, Sunday Morning show on CBS had a segment devoted to her. I saw her and Jackson Browne in concert at the Capital Theatre in NJ a long time ago. I also loved Harpo’s Blues. You can rest now, Pheobe, Thanks for your gift.

    Wow, can’t believe it. I didn’t even know she had a brain hemorrage a year ago! She was such an amazing singer & a class act. Saw her one time live in Seattle. RIP Phoebe. We will miss you.

    I saw you perform at a small unknown theater on Long Island, at the urging of my husband. I sat in the 2nd row with my 6 yr old daughter on my lap. You sang ” your my little girl” to me and her. I cried for days at both your pain and your miraculous god given voice. Be at peace now, but we will miss your voice and am quite sure, I will never hear a voice like it again. Love you.

    She Was SO GREAT!

    This is a little obscure, but Phoebe Snow cowrote and sang a nice song called “The Best Thing” with Robert Lamm of the group Chicago.

    A beautiful voice, and a beautiful person. She will be missed.

    Hearing that Phoebe Snow died is like a punch in the gut. I know she retired to care for Valerie Rose…didn’t realize they died from the same condition [although Phoebe’s brain hemorrhage was brought on by a stroke she suffered last year] I loved “Poetry Man” & her rendition of Clyde McPhatter’s “A Lover’s Question” [with Lou Rawls] is timeless. Wherever Phoebe is, I hope she is at peace with her beloved Valerie Rose.
