Jesse Winchester Anthology


Bearsville Records / Castle Music 1999


Album Notes

This compilation/ rerelease by Castle Music is a double CD where the first disc consists of various album tracks released by Bearsville Records between 1972 and 1981, and the second disc has the complete Jesse Winchester debut album produced by Robbie Robertson.
This double CD comes as a fulfillment of what Elvis Costello wrote in the liner notes for his album Kojak Variety (1995) which featured a cover of Winchester´s "Payday." Elvis wrote:
"Jesse Winchester´s 'Payday´is the most recent song on this record. It comes from his 1970 debut album which contains many very beautiful ballads and one terrifying song called ´Black Dog.´ I still cannot listen to it in the dark. That album was produced by Robbie Robertson and features other members of The Band. If you see it, snap it up! There is a very fine Jesse Winchester anthology but it would only be perfect if it contained all the tracks from that first record."
