Cross-posting a TBS post. And why not?

Because I LOVE Trembling Blue Stars, I post anything I can find related to this wonderful band. So, with-out knowing much about this cause, I am re-posting their post just because they are important in my life! Also, I saw Beth Orton mentioned, so this HAS to be a good effort. That makes it two Beths to follow! Beth Arzy and Beth Orton are important to my music life!

Bill Callahan, Ron Sexmith, Beth Orton and Marrisa Nadler are among the artists featured on the upcoming Crayon Angel: A Tribute to the Music of Judee Sill. Judee Sill was a Laurel Canyon-based folk artist who released two critically-acclaimed albums before dying of a drug overdose in 1979 at the age of 35. Sill, whose songwriting was influenced by Bach’s arranging, was the first artist signed to David Geffen’s Asylum label. Graham Nash produced her first single, “Jesus was a Cross Maker.” Sill’s albums were reissued by Arista in 2005.

Two songs on the album, Beth Orton’s “Reach for the Sky” and BIll Callahan’s “Like A Rainbow,” previously existed only as sheet music. The album is due September 22 from the American Dust label.

Here’s the track list:

Ron Sexsmith: “Crayon Angel”
Beth Orton: “Reach for the Sky”
Daniel Rossen: “Waterfall”
Frida Hyv√∂nen: “Jesus Was a Cross Maker”
Shalants: “Lopin’ Along Thru the Cosmos”
Final Fantasy: “The Donor”
Nicolai Dunger: “Soldier of the Heart”
Trembling Blue Stars: “Lady-O”
Colossal Yes: “The Phoenix”
Marissa Nadler & Black Hole Infinity: “The Kiss”
Princeton: “Down Where the Valleys Are Low”
The Bye Bye Blackbirds: “There’s a Rugged Road”
Meg Baird: “When the Bridegroom Comes”
Bill Callahan: “For a Rainbow”
P.G. Six: “Til Dreams Come True”
