Subject: RE: Ellen MacIllwaine Cds
I agree with all you Ellen McIlwaine fans--I first saw her in 1971 at the Main Point in Phila. and after that first show, went back every single night she played there, both sets. Amazing singer, guitarist, pianist. Maybe a little too quirky for mainstream but my god she could sing and play her butt off. I just got a new CD that's called "Up From The Skies: The Polydor Years" which seems to be a combination of the "We The People" and "Honky Tonk Angel" albums--has 21 selections. I think I got it at CDNow or DVDwave.com (no tax or shippinng at DVD, by the way). I've played her stuff for some people and they seem to either love it or hate it but it's guaranteed to be like nothing they've ever heard before! Nice to see some Ellen devotees here.
