Deluxe reissue of this totally unknown new england teenage folk private press from 1971. originally released by the artist herself as a demo only blank cover edition of 100 copies. 

The original had no cover art, so we've kept the packaging suitably stark & mysterious, yet quite exquisite : each heavyweight vintage style cover is individually hand-bound in leather textured art paper, with the only graphics being a mounted 5x7 inch black & white photo print portrait of ellie from 1970. pressed on 180gm virgin vinyl, with exact reproduction labels & a thick insert with new liner notes by ellie, plus more vintage photos. edition of 300 copies, in two cover color / texture variations (black & burgundy).

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.
