2LP – Limited White Vinyl
Americana singer-songwriter Oh Susanna releases a deluxe edition of her stunning critically acclaimed album Sleepy Little Sailor on MVKA. The original 11 songs are accompanied by acoustic recordings of 5 of the songs from the album including the title track.
After her intense, concept-style debut album – inspired by the 1889 flood that ravaged the steel city of Johnstown, and redolent of old Appalachian ballads – her captivating follow-up bared all in dreamy late-night rootsy songs showing off a voice that was alternately gutsy and fragile. For every track belted out with gusto, such as Ted’s So Wasted, or her heartfelt country-soul version of Otis Redding’s I’ve Got Dreams to Remember, there were yet more vulnerable songs telling of obsessive love and loss: Forever at Your Feet, Sacrifice, Beauty Boy and River Blue. Some of these songs are given a beautiful reworking on the reissue which contains six previously unreleased acoustic recordings alongside the original album. River Blue and Kings Road are newly recorded, with producer Jim Bryson, while Sleepy Little Sailor, Sacrifice and Beauty Boy are taken from the original demo sessions with her producer Colin Cripps (Kathleen Edwards).
