Buffy Sainte-Marie "It's My Way"
1964 LP released on CD 1992 @160kbs





















Buffy Sainte-Marie, a Canadian Cree Indian, was an active participant in the early 1960s US and Canadian folk music scene as both a performer and a song writer. This was her first album in 1964 and I actually bought a copy not long after that. Fortunately, it was released on CD in 1992 and some unknown person has ripped the CD.
Buffy had lots to say and she said it powerfully in a clear vibrato voice. This LP is a pleasant mix of folk music e.g. protest songs "Now that the buffalo's gone" and "The Universal Soldier" (she wrote both), songs of life e.g. Cod'ine inspired by a short period of addiction, and traditional songs e.g. The Old Man's Lament" (better known as "Rocking the Cradle" or "None of my own"), Cripple Creek and "The Incest Song". Strangely, two of these songs are claimed on the CD reverse as being written and composed by Buffy Sainte-Marie which must have been news to her!
There is lots on the WWW about Buffy for anyone who wants to know more about this very accomplished lady. In the meantime, enjoy her music.

Re-up on its way. A pity I did not keep the secondary links so need to re-upload - please be patient - just a matter of a few hours at most now.
Thanks for the interest!
