With a career that stretches back to the 1960s, vocalist Tracy Nelson has pursued her own path through roots music.
A skilled, acclaimed interpreter of songs, Tracy Nelson was an early supporter of songwriters such as Steve Young, John Hiatt, and Eric Kaz. ‘Poor Man’s Paradise’ was originally recorded and released in 1973 on the Columbia Records label.
As Tracy says herself in the CD booklet notes, on the day of the album release, she was also released from her contract with the label, she and it being a victim of internal label machinations. A shame, because Poor Man’s Paradise is a fine collection that mixes Tracy’s fondness for Blues and Country, and shows her cultured vocal skills to great effect.
Poor Man’s Paradise is to be reissued on Friday August 4th 2017 on the Retroworld reissue division of North London indie label Floating World.
