Buffy Sainte-Marie – Many a Mile (1965, Remastered 2015)

In 1964, Buffy Sainte-Marie left Greenwich Village to attend a pow wow in Saskatchewan, which deepened her passion for Native American music.
This made its presence felt in her vocal inflections, subject matter and heightened rhythm-driven elements after she signed to Vanguard and released her debut album. The following year, she released her second album, Many a Mile, named after the title track by Patrick Sky.
The set featured several Child Ballads, drawn from the songs from England, Scotland and their American variants, collected by Francis James Child in the second half of the 19th century.
