The astonishing Judee Sill was the first artist signed to David Geffen's Asylum Records, and her eponymous 1971 debut was the label's first ever album. Sill's music is intensely spiritual, redolent of both mysticism and divine imagery, yet grounded by great songwriting and a pure but powerful singing talent. Her songs impart incredible intimacy that is enhanced and not diminished by her sometimes complex string/orchestral arrangements (remarkably Sill arranged and conducted the strings/orchestra on both of her albums herself!).
When stardom didn't follow the critical acclaim of her first two albums her career never recovered. Sill was dead in 1979 at just 35 of a drug overdose. However, the brevity of Judee's musical legacy is vastly outweighed by the emotional power in the work she left behind. This brand new 19-track, 2LP collection includes demos, outtakes and live recordings which are making their premier on the vinyl format and have never sounded better. With new artwork, liner notes and their typical deluxe packaging, this numbered, limited ROG release should not be missed.
