Boomkat Product Review:
Sadly, the late and very great Judee Sill didn't leave behind an especially extensive catalogue of works, but apart from the two albums (her self-titled 1971 debut and its 1973 follow-up, Heartfood) completed in her lifetime, we've since heard Dreams Come True, mixed by Jim O'Rourke from materials for a proposed third album, along with a few live recordings and outtakes compiled for reissues. This live album draws from three concert appearances made in the UK between 1972 and 1973 and features favourites from her debut LP, such as 'Jesus Was A Crossmaker' and 'Enchanted Sky Machines' as well as cuts from her sophomore record: 'Soldier Of The Heart', 'The Phoenix', 'There's A Rugged Road', 'The Donor', The Kiss' and 'Down Where The Valleys Are Low'. One of the recordings is for In Session With Bob Harris, and is concluded with an interview, during which, Sill comes across as a little awkward, but then the between-song banter can be even more strained. The Judee Sill who gives a clunky introduction to 'Lady-O', leading to blanket silences after (not very) jokey anecdotes could be an entirely different person to the one who actually performs the song. Her intricate, very baroque fingerpicked guitar lines and immaculate vocals are like something from another plane. The performances are incredible throughout and you won't mind a bit that songs are repeated across the three different sets: the three recordings each of 'The Kiss' and 'Down Where The Valleys' seem entirely warranted.
