Judee Sill was phenomenal and at least equal to Joni Mitchell in terms of talent and songwriting ability. The two albums she released in her lifetime, "Judee Sill" and "Heart Food" were both amazing works of heartbreaking genius. This selection of live recordings is good, it offers stripped-down versions of those album tracks, just voice and guitar or piano, showing her talent as a songwriter and musician. It also offers a peek into her otherwise enigmatic persona when we hear her speaking between songs. All that was previously known was her music and tragic back story. It's great to hear a live recording by her and you should buy it, but make sure you also buy her studio albums.
