Song of the Day: Judee Sill – “The Pearl”

This wonderful performance of “The Pearl,” from an early 1973 episode of The Old Grey Whistle Test, was recently rebroadcast as part of BBC4’s Singer/Songwriters season, and finds Judee Sill in spellbinding form. It’s gorgeous, sparse, and haunting. And look at her guitar playing!

Thanks to YouTube user wilfridthesiger for uploading it.
