thanks Cow_Art. Started listening to the Delta Sweete at lunhc and it was well worth it!

Oddly, after composing almost every song on the Ode to Billy Joe LP she wrote fewer and fewer songs with each subsequent album (only one on 1970's Fancy) but then suddenly she came up with the entirely self-composed Patchwork in 1971 which sounds much different from the albums before it, quieter and simpler I would describe it - but that turned out to be her last album.

isn’t there some story or rumor that she was dating Jim Ford at the time and he helped with the writing, at least the title song?

which he told to Nick Lowe who repeated it. Seems to have been slapped down by many others.

Patchwork was my favourite discovery when I listened to the box set last year.

What’s the deal with “thunder in the afternoon”? It’s my favorite discovery of the year but I guess it only ever appeared on some German “best of” CD or something... and this new balearic comp from Bill Brewster. Is there a whole lost album of chilled out electric piano soul??

"Thunder in the Afternoon" is from album sessions in 1978 that never resulted in an album

Thread is too short.

How the hell did she leave Smoke in the can and unreleased, that song blows me away? Seen some recent uploads of her Ed Sullivan spots, such a weird dichotomy between her amazing songwriting artistry and the sort of show biz automaton stuff she churned out in tv specials and Vegas, not surprising she walked away at a still youngish age when she made enough money to retire
