Milk Of The Tree: An Anthology Of Female Vocal Folk And Singer-Songwriters 1966-73

Grapefruit



3cd

Released: 30th Jun 2017

£19.99


this is a hugely entertaining snapshot of a particular time, place & frame of mind that produced such enduring, spellbinding music.

it wasn't until the mid-Sixties that independent female voices really began to be heard within the music industry. The feminist movement naturally coincided with the first signs of genuine musical emancipation. Along the way, we encounter San Franciscan psychedelia, LA folk rock, Swinging London pop-folk, electric folk, progressive folk & even folk club folk. As well as featuring most of the leading figures from both sides of the Atlantic, this comp includes many performers who received little attention at the time but who now have a cult reputation amongst collectors. A significant number of tracks were unreleased at the time, while the set also includes the first-ever appearance by pioneering female rock duo Emily Muff.
