This superb new compilation from the Past & Present label gathers together 16 beautiful ballads performed by overlooked American female singers of the late '60s and early '70s. Featuring California's Penny Nichols with the "Salton Sea Song," a jazz-inflected folk track off her 1968 Buddah debut, Oklahoman Anna Black with her smoky blues rendition of the suicide-inducing "Gloomy Sunday," Chicago's Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Koloc, with her heart-rending and haunted 1971 folk ballad "Devil's Nine Questions," the soporific dream-haze of New York's Lily & Maria with their 1968 rarity, "Morning Glory Morning," and more, these mellow tracks exemplify rare, unpolished beauty. Touching on folk, blues, pop and psychedelia, with an emphasis on the acoustic guitar, this collection is culled from some of the best unknown singer-songwriter albums of the era, and features some of the loveliest songs you've never heard. Other artists include: Kathy McCord, Kathy Smith, Penny Nichols, Karen Beth, Emily, Susan Pillsbury, Michele, Judy Roderick, Dayle Stanley, Amanda Trees, Mary McCaslin, Rosalie Sorrels, and Leonda Zono.
