Isobel Campbell 'Milkwhite Sheets' LP
Reissue of Isobel Campbell's fourth album.
Milkwhite Sheets was released in 2006 following her Mercury nomination for ‘Ballad Of The Broken Seas’. As well as songs written by Campbell, the album also features traditional songs from Appalachia and The British Isles. Campbell says: “When David Tibet introduced me to the recordings of Shirley and Dolly Collins I was instantly transfixed. I’d never heard anything so beautiful in my life, so raw and honest, it led me onwards to discover Davey Graham and Anne Briggs and the recordings of Jean Ritchie and more. And as a writer, listening, absorbing and learning about these magical, mysterious treasures taught and inspired so much, I honestly think some of these ancient folk songs are some of the most beautiful to ever grace the earth.”
