• caroline peyton Intuition (CD, £7.50)

    label: Asterisk

    Before she was voicing Disney films and performing alongside Linda Ronstadt and Andy Gibb in the Pirates of Penzance, Caroline Peyton cut two beautiful jazz-folk LPs for Bloomington, Indiana's BRBQ Records. Both were issued in limited quantities to near-universal shoulder shrugs. Sure, Rolling Stone called Intuition a "near state of the art album by a pop female vocalist", but that was hardly a ringing endorsement for the ravenous record buying public of 1977. The ten-song album has been expanded to seventeen, including two studio outtakes and five acoustic demos from her collection of cassette masters. The booklet features a dozen candid photos from the period and Ed Hurt's account of Caroline's final days as an outsider folk goddess.
