Pathfinder, The: Buried Treasures - The Mid-70's Recordings
Not yet reviewed.
'The Pathfinder: Buried: Treasures' is basically a collection of songs that people ask for at concerts 'Up Where We Belong', 'Universal Soldier', 'Until It's Time For You To Go' to rarely heard tracks. However, it offers the benefit of hindsight a glimpse into this prolific artist at a time when she was defining the protest music genre that underscores the 1960's.
Buffy Sainte-Marie struggled to get airplay at the time, not knowing until 2006 when she discovered that both the CIA and FBI had kept her under surveillance during the Johnson and Nixon administrations, who actively sought to gag many artists in the media who were critical of the government as well as the Vietnam war. This collection is a vibrant travelogue through the mind of an icon. It offers a distinct and refined listening experience that is a must have for any folk, country or blues aficionado fascinated with the music that denotes the complex of inter-related cultural and political trends of 'The Sixties' which continued to develop throughout the 20th century and beyond.
