RIP Helen Reddy!


I am strong

I am invincible

I am woman



Helen Reddy, the activist and lilting voice behind the 1972 feminist anthem "I Am Woman," has died at age 78, according to a statement from her family.

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Helen Reddy, on the afternoon of September 29th 2020 in Los Angeles," her children Traci and Jordan shared via Facebook. "She was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and a truly formidable woman. Our hearts are broken. But we take comfort in the knowledge that her voice will live on forever."

I'm kind of surprised as popular as Helen was in the 70s, most of her catalog was severely over-looked as far their availability on CD. Hardly any of it was reissued on CD domestically. Several of the albums are only available as twofers reissued by a European label several years ago. And of course, now they are rather scarce.
