Product description

Product Description

Recorded without her knowledge at the 1986 Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, some of these 'field' recordings were released on album later that year and became a surprise indie hit in the UK, leading to Michelle being signed by a major label. However, despite the boost that original, primitive, unauthorised release gave to her career she was not best pleased. It was not only without her permission, it was ineptly edited, chopped out many songs and most of her informal chat. Worst of all it was running at the wrong speed. Seventen years later, with Michelle now firmly in control of her career, this revised, 2-CD, expanded release of the Kerrville recordings is a whole different ballgame, endorsed by the artist herself with a 52-page booklet. Now at the right speed with enhanced sound quality and her entire performance intact, it is an infinitely better revelation of why Michelle has become internationally renowned. The first disc of the new package features the album as originally released and reflects that perspective, though now with improved clarity. The second is the restored, revelatory tape with all 21 songs from around the campfire, complete with Michelle's incisive, witty remarks plus a bonus of material made in performance with other musicians at the festival. This release kicks off a year-long publicity campaign to celebrate the career to date of a unique, iconaclastic artist.
