Product Description

CD Description

Recorded in 1999, DOG LEAP STAIRS was made for the legendarily princely sum of £80. In the English folk-pop tradition of Nick Drake, Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention this album is full of the delicate, folky songcraft and honest, emotional writing that has earned her considerable acclaim. "Williams has one of those rare, calm and pure voices that can impart emotion without ever becomig histrionic." - NME Tracks: Leazes Park / Night Came / What Am I Doing Here? / No-one To Blame / Something Like That / Lydia / Handy / Dog Without Wings / Fade / Madmen And Maniacs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb melancholic debut (corrected version) 27 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I bought the album after this "Little Black Numbers" I could not help but think to myself does this singer-songwriter have any more albums and what are they like?

So with that in mind I tracked this album down, and that was in the year 2000, and low and behold I find it's been re-released after the success of other female singer-songwriters of recent times.

This collection of 10 tracks that was her début album, was released in 1999 on her own "CAW" label is just over 32 minutes long and is of the same low-fi approach of the previous album.

Ms. Williams has even done the sleeve artwork herself as well as played guitar, and on some of the tracks co-produced and on some done the arrangement of the track.

On the song "Something like that" K.W. has even recorded the song as well as everything else on that track from vocals to the engineering it think this D.I.Y. style of recording by her is matter of necessity to save money, as this first recording she financed herself.

You will find that the lyrics to songs sound very personal and I think they relate to the deeply felt feelings of "Ms Williams".

This recording is a great snapshot of a talented artist who couldn't get a break from a major label but believed in her talent herself and this is the fruits of her first release I am glad to stay are available again for others to enjoy.

If you bought and enjoyed "Little Black Numbers" don't miss out the opportunity to buy this collection as its full of intense raw emotion that we all feel sometimes and K.W. conveys so eloquently on this album of vignettes.
