Welcome to episode 75 of Love That Album.
I’m joined by my friend and fellow presenter from the See Hear podcast, Mr Bernard Stickwell to discuss the legacy of the songwriter, musician, orchestrator and singer, Judee Sill. In the early 1970s Judee gave the world two magnificent records - her eponymous debut and its follow up Heart Food. In an era when songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Warren Zevon (who covered one of Judee’s songs) were revered, and the American West Coast sound was popular, it seems bizarre that Judee’s artistic triumphs were commercial failures. The lack of commercial success, however, was just another disappointment in a life full of hardship. Bernie and I discuss her life’s story as well as what makes the music so wonderful. If you haven’t caught up with her repertoire yet, Bernie and I urge you to get these two albums. Thank us later.
Eric Reanimator returns for another great Album I Love segment to discuss a compilation by country songwriter (and actor) Hoyt Axton.
