Live in London: The BBC Recordings 1972-1973 (2CD)
Nearly 40 years after her passing, Judee Sill remains one of the most important and singular talents of the Laurel Canyon scene. Her two releases for David Geffen's Asylum (1971's Judee Sill and 1973's Heart Food) are critically celebrated masterpieces of orchestral folk. Her songs have been covered by artists as diverse as The Turtles and Will Oldham, and her fans include Jim O'Rourke, Devendra Banhart, Graham Nash, Sleater Kinney and more.
This amazing collection of previously unreleased live recordings from the BBC archives features beautiful versions of some of her most well known songs, including 'Jesus Was A Cross Maker,' 'Lady-O,' 'The Kiss' and more. Recorded in 1972 and 1973 at the peak of her talent, the tracks on this collection are from solo performances featuring Sill on vocals, piano and guitar. Absolutely stunning.
