The documentary The Ballad of Shirley Collins traces the long and eventful life of our era’s foremost singer of traditional English folk song. The film captures sessions for her album Lodestar, her first after decades of tragic silence. It also recalls her 1959 song-collecting trip to the US with Alan Lomax, some of the fruits of which are included on this soundtrack. Also here is music from collaborators Michael J York and Ossian Brown, an unearthed home recording of Shirley’s late sister Dolly, and a previously unreleased 1958 BBC session. Available on vinyl, or on CD with a DVD of the film itself.
