7/10 Clinton Staff review, 05 September 2013

The industry of re-issuing private press (aka records that no-one was interested in at the time) goes from strength to strength. Ellie Daniels is now almost 60, and it’s lovely for her that someone has re-issued her only album which was made back in 1971 when she was one of about a million folk minstrels in thrall to the gentle laid back pluckings of the Laurel Canyon sound and the politicized likes of Joan Baez, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan.

It’s a nice set of songs, sparse, simple and effective, the acoustic guitar is beautifully recorded and a little harp-like. Certain songs you can imagine being improved by understated string arrangements. Her voice is a quivery thing, retaining a certain pitch throughout and barely wavering from it. Gentle flute is added on certain songs and it’s all incredibly sweet. Whether it’s enough to justify a re-issue (however beautifully done) and an enormous price tag, however, is debatable.
