It's My Way! Buffy Sainte-Marie

IT'S MY WAY! was the 1964 debut recording by Cree singer-songwriter BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE and contains three of her greatest songs - Now That The Buffalo's Gone, Cod'ine (covered by 60s groups The Charlatans and Quicksilver Messenger Service) and The Universal Soldier (made a hit by Donovan). Backed only by her own guitar (Patrick Sky lends a second guitar on He Lived Alone In Town and jazzman Art Davis the bass on Now That The Buffalo's Gone), this is Buffy's least instrumentally cluttered album and her vibrato-laden vocals are focused as nowhere else in her subsequent catalogue. A fine record of her early folk club and festival sound, it is also one of the most powerful topical albums from the early 60s folk protest movement, tackling fearlessly the mistreatment of Native Americans, incest, drugs, disintegrating relationships, alcoholism, adultery and the personal and collective responsibilities of war.
