Buffy Sainte - Marie, the Canadian and multi talented promoter of social justice, the compassionate and integrity driven body of her work encapsulating the suffering of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, for through all her work as singer-songwriter, musician, composer, visual artist, educator, pacifist, and social activist, the spirit of an aware, sensitive and yet outraged regard for human dignity is apparent and pronounced. A woman whose sense of an awareness of the world, and it's existence outwith the sphere of ego driven materialism and personal interest, and with a acute knowledge of historical tragedy, asked ''Where are the great protest songs of today? Are people deaf and blind?'' Within all this, her music has given a rich, varied and "amazing career" as described by the Guardian, a career whose influence has set the tone for truthful and consistent protest.
The condition of the vinyl is brilliant, virtually dust free and without scratches. Furthermore, although the box has suffered a certain amount of distemper due to the passage of time, it's florid charm is as engrossing as ever.
