Kate and Anna McGarrigle – Tell My Sister

Singer/songwriting sisters Kate and Anna McGarrigle first released this treasure in 1975.  It is one of the strongest albums back-to-front ever made by a Canadian act.  It is a shame that it is not better known.  Well, here’s your chance to make up for that. Tell My Sister is really a box set in which that album (remastered), a disc of demos and 1977’s Dancer With Bruised Knees have been packaged together.  The depth and warmth these two ladies can put into their music is just remarkable.  Great harmonies, cheeky lyrics and a poignancy that you can’t manufacture.  Much more adoration of the duo’s body of work should be coming as a result of this reissue.
