Today’s Music to keep me SANE in Isolation – Buffy St Marie

Buffy a full-blooded Native American Indian who came out of the New York Folk scene. She has recorded in a variety of styles though.

She has produced some of the strongest lyrics I have ever read – lyrics concerning the genocide of the Native Americans and their present-day plight. She is so passionate and forceful

I think ‘My country ’tis of thy people you’re dying’ is one of the strongest songs ever written.

I’m still angry over Cummings, Maitliss and Johnson’s incompetence. I’ll play Buffy and seethe.

      1. I found the same with Joan Baez. In general I find male voices more appealing – nothing against women you understand – just an acoustic preference. I like a lower register.

      2. True. Baez’s voice – and demeanor – are a bit too heavy. Still she has a beautiful voice. A basso singer can’t do those trills that annoy us.

      3. That is true. I guess it is a matter of personal choice in the end. I find it jars – but the quality is superb.

I'd like to hear from you...
