"It takes only a fraction of a second to succumb to her unique voice." - Bruce Springsteen.

"At night in my bedroom I hear the whoo-whoo of the little birds and I hear the dogs barking very sad. That's what I put in my records. I don't bark bow-wow, but I bark whoo, and I sing like the birdies." - Yma Sumac
