"Her singing was exceptional. Wonderful breathy phrasing and clear enunciation married a husky, beautiful voice that was as comfortable with jazz as folk music." --folklore collector and cultural historian Warren Fahey

Virtually ignored outside her native Australia, Marian Henderson (1937-2015) provided folk fans worldwide with a brief, but inspired soundtrack. Her jazz background also drew profound accolades from numerous musicians, but for all the applause, Henderson's recorded legacy remains sadly short. Her 1970 album Cameo reveals a simplicity and depth that deserve far greater recognition than she received during her career. Alongside valuable interpretations of Sandy Denny's "Fotheringay," Leonard Cohen's "The Stranger," and The Incredible String Band's "First Girl I Loved," this set offers a sublime collection of numerous traditionals to which Henderson gives new life. Stoned Circle very proudly presents the first-ever reissue of the astounding Cameo, Marian Henderson's sole album. Accompanying a fully remastered Cameo, the second disc includes a remastered collection of her other rare recorded appearances from the 1964 Pix magazine EPs and the compilations the The Restless Years and Old Botany Bay. Includes background liners and rare archival photos.
