TIA BLAKE AND HER FOLK GROUP - Folksongs & Ballads

After a spell of dormancy, Water is back with this gem of a reissue, one that's right up there with other such past finds from this label as Ruthann Friedman's Constant Companion, Anne Briggs' self-titled set, and the songs of Judee Sill.

"A very rare and sought-after record, released only in France in 1971 and never before available on CD. A stunning selection of songs performed in a stripped-down setting, with Tia's achingly beautiful vocals taking center stage. A truly wonderful album, reissued here on CD with new notes from Tia herself, along with vintage photos, and bonus tracks taken from rehearsals and a scrapped CBC session that features the only known recordings of Tia's original songs." - Runt
