Due to be broadcast tomorrow Tuesday 9.9.14 at 11.30 on BBC Radio 4. Should be available on the iplayer to listen to sometime after 12.00 tomorrow


"I coulda sworn I heard my spirit soarin'
Guess I'm always chasin' the sun
Hopin' we will soon be one
Until it turns around to me, then I try to run"

Ruth Barnes delves into the extraordinary story of the musician Judee Sill.

The first act signed to David Geffen's Asylum Records in the early 1970s, Judee Sill produced two astonishingly beautiful albums in her lifetime.

Seemingly emerging from the Laurel Canyon scene, her music wove a diverse tapestry of influences - from gospel piano to Bach, rhythm and blues to country, forty-part vocal harmonies blending into piano ballads...

So why did Judee Sill disappear from view? Ruth Barnes traces Judee's peculiar life story - hearing tales of armed robberies, reform school and addiction, alongside musical invention and heartstopping songs.

With contributions from family, friends, lovers and devotees of her music including JD Souther, XTC's Andy Partridge, Jim Pons, Tommy Peltier and 'Whispering' Bob Harris.

Producer: Eleanor McDowall
A Falling Tree Production for BBC Radio 4

For those of us who hadn't encountered Judee's music, here's a very nice article about her:

A lovely programme   - well done every one involved.
I heard and liked her records years ago, but never got around to buying anything by her. Must remedy (sorry Judee - a bit late...)
