Only just discovered Judee Sill
Judee was an American singer songwriter who made two albums for Asylum records in the early 1970's. When she died by the end of the decade she was almost forgotten. Heard Jonnie Walker play a track from her last year and decided to look into her work. This double album contains both Asylum albums plus some bonus tracks together with a comprehensive booklet with her history. The music is quite complex lyrically and instrumentally, but repays repeat listening. I would highly recommend this album.

An undiscovered treasure
I heard a guy on the radio talking about a great singer that nobody had heard of. Partly because she died years ago, leaving very little recorded material. He said her voice was pure and clear and she had amazing control over the volume, using it with great effect. So I had to hear her. I got this album, which seems to be the only one she did, and I love it. OK, she has a very pronounced American accent, but I got to like that as well. As a musician I feel Judee is not a plain folk singer, using standard chords and runs. She says on the live part of the album (which is excellent too) that she used to play organ in reform school, and she learned some 'Pentecostal riffs' And they are superb - it's like having lumps of Mozart mixed with standard guitar playing. She's also on YouTube, and you might want to listen to her there to see what you think. This is now one of my favourite CDs. Read full review

Judee Sill. One of the greatest, sweetest, singer songwriters ever.
Well what can I say. Judee Sill a fantastic singer songwriter who never found the success she very much deserved. It has been said before that everyone should listen to the track Kiss at least once in their life and i fully agree with this. Judee was religious and she retains this throughout many of her songs, without pushing down your throat. I liked Judee in the late 60s and early 70s and still feel cheated that she never made it commercially. On this CD set, you get to hear the fully produced tracks and many of them are repeated, but being performed live. I personally prefer the live versions. Judee died young and had a troubled short life, she deserved better. She has been classed along side of the likes of Joni Mitchell, I would always say the Judee wiped the floor with Joni and many of the other singer songwriters who came out of LA in the late 60s/early 70s. Buy this CD and listen to it all the way without judging it after a couple of tracks. You will be amazed at her lyrics if you listen to them. Do I like Judee ?, obviously yes, do I miss Judee ? obviously yes. Anyway, buy it, listen to it, enjoy it, you will not be dissapointed. Read full review

Introduction to Judee Sill
This two album compilation is an excellent introduction to a little-known talent. Judee Sill is a contemporary of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro and has a similar intensity and confessional lyric style. This album is a real joy if you like sensitive, mysterious acoustic music.
