when Kate McGarrigle passed away

Album: Self-titled debut LP
Released: 20 January 1976 – 45 years ago today

AllMusic/Mark Deming: “Debut albums simply aren’t supposed to be as accomplished and beautifully crafted as Kate & Anna McGarrigle’s first record, which is as lovely and superbly realized as folk-rock gets… Kate & Anna McGarrigle is a record that manages to make all these emotions ring true, and never with one canceling out another. Quite simply a nearly perfect record, and if you’re not a fan, repeated listenings to this album might make you one.” Full review here. Score: 5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Great voices. Affecting songs. Folk-pop at its best. I’m pretty
sure Kate Bush, Sharon Van Etten, and St. Vincent are inspired by these romantic sisters.

Key track: Complainte pour Ste-Cathérine
