More Info:

These demo recordings are an invaluable addition to the unique catalog of material written and recorded by early 1970’s folk singer Tia Blake, best known for her lost classic album Folksongs and Ballads, released on the small French SFP label in 1971.  Born Christiana Elizabeth Wallman April 13, 1952 in Columbus, Georgia, Tia moved to Paris when she was 18 years old, where she learned how to play acoustic guitar and was introduced to Michel Bachelet and Jean-Paul Smets, the owner and A&R manager of  SFP, who asked her to record her first album.  Recorded in Montreal and Paris, this 10" EP features demos of traditional ballads and original songs by Blake and has been remastered from original tapes. First time on vinyl.
