Though of Cree extraction, BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE was brought up by adoptive parents and knew little of her Native American heritage until in her teens. Her blend of social comment on the wider political scene and on Native American affairs makes her 1960s work compelling. THIS BEST OF THE VANGUARD YEARS expands the original 2-LP release of the same name with two previously unreleased tracks from Saint-Marie's November 1968 Carnegie Hall concert, Bird On A Wire and God Bless The Child. Elsewhere, her unique singing style visits her own classics The Universal Soldier, I'm Gonna Be A Country Girl Again and My Country 'Tis Of Thy People You're Dying as well as those of Patrick Sky (Many A Mile) and Leonard Cohen (God Is Alive, Magic Is Afoot).
