Compilation of Laura Cantrell's Best BBC On-Air Performances Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
Over the past 15 years, Laura Cantrell has been a familiar presence on the U.K. country music scene. The Nashville-born, New York-based artist has developed a loyal audience through consistent touring, and numerous radio interviews and sessions for BBC programs hosted by Bob Harris, Andy Kershaw and the late John Peel, who famously championed her debut album, Not The Tremblin' Kind.
On vinyl for the first time, Laura Cantrell At The BBC compiles the best of her on-air performances from 2000-2005, including several previously unreleased songs, and traces the arc of Cantrell's rise as an Americana artist on the airwaves of the venerable British broadcasting system.
Song selections range from fan favorites of Cantrell's catalog like "The Whiskey Makes You Sweeter" and "Bees" to covers like contemporary songwriter Cheri Knight's "All Blue," country rarities like "Rain Boy," and standards such as "Legend In My Time." Cantrell ultimately was invited to do five Peel Sessions, two recorded at Maida Vale and three broadcast live from Peel Acres. All of those sessions are represented on this collection.
