Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Cat Power: Chan Marshall (vocals); Tim Foljahn, Steve Shelley.
  • Audio Mixer: Edward Douglas.
  • Recording information: Mott Street Space (12/1994).
  • Editor: Oliver Strauss.
  • Unknown Contributor Roles: Steve Shelley; Tim Foljahn; Chan Marshall.
  • Recorded quickly with bassist Tim Foljahn and drummer Steve Shelley from her previous album, WHAT WOULD THE COMMUNITY THINK? and released quietly on Shelley's part-time Smells Like label, MYRA LEE isn't the tossed-off marking-time effort you might expect. Chan (pronounced Shawn) Marshall's acoustic guitar-based tunes are always rather sparse, and this is by far her most skeletal album, the near-subliminal backing placing her clear voice and disquieting lyrics front and center throughout.
  • Opening with the quiet desperation of "Enough," the bleakness continues on the blues-inflected "We All Die" and a simply heartbreaking solo rendition of Hank Williams' "I Can't Help It If I'm Still in Love With You." It's not all slit-your-wrists material--"Not What You Want" and the rueful "Wealthy Man" are more dismissive than anguished--but MYRA LEE is a stark and powerful folk-based acoustic pop album.
Professional Reviews
Option (7-8/96, p.96) - "...Marshall's understated acoustic songs burn with a kind of hazy, smoldering glow....There's nothing polished about this album, and nothing particularly pretty, but its raw emotion works on you..."
