Judee Sill: Live in London: The BBC Recordings 1972-1973
Jeff Tamarkin, Boston Phoenix, The, 7 August 2007
IF JUDEE SILL'S story isn't fodder for a Lifetime TV movie, then nothing is: the early deaths of her father and brother; an alcoholic mother remarried to an evil stepdad; ensuing drugs, crime, reform school, prison, and prostitution; redemption through folk music; discovery by Graham Nash; two '70s albums on David Geffen's Asylum label; then back into dope, obscurity, and death from an overdose. Decades later: posthumous accolades.
Total word count of piece: 193
