Kate & Anna McGarrigle - Kate & Anna McGarrigle (1975) - Lp

Kate McGarrigle (February 6, 1946 – January 18, 2010) and Anna McGarrigle (born December 4, 1944) were a duo of Canadian singer-songwriters from Quebec, who performed until Kate McGarrigle's death on January 18, 2010.
Anna and Kate McGarrigle were born in Montreal of mixed Irish- and French-Canadian background, but lived their childhood in the Laurentian Mountains village of Saint-Sauveur-des-Monts, northwest of Montreal, where they learned piano from village nuns.
In the 1960s, in Montreal, while Kate was studying engineering at McGill University and Anna art at the École des beaux-arts de Montréal, they began performing in public and writing their own songs. From 1963 to 1967 they teamed up with Jack Nissenson and Peter Weldon to form the folk group Mountain City Four.

Kate & Anna McGarrigle is the debut album by Kate & Anna McGarrigle, released in January 1976.
The album includes "Heart Like a Wheel," the McGarrigles' most famous song, which was first recorded in 1972 by McKendree Spring and by Linda Ronstadt in 1974. That song subsequently has been covered by several other artists, including Billy Bragg, Katie Moore, The Corrs, and June Tabor.
Other songs from the album which have received cover treatments include "Talk to Me of Mendocino," covered by Ronstadt on her 1982 album Get Closer, by the English singer-songwriter John Howard on his 2007 E.P. The Bewlay Brothers and by Nona Marie and The Choir on their 2011 eponymous album; "Complainte pour Ste-Catherine," covered by the British pop singer Kirsty MacColl in 1989; and "Go Leave," covered by Anne Sofie von Otter with Elvis Costello.
Guest musicians on the album include Lowell George, Bobby Keys and Anna McGarrigle's husband, Dane Lanken.
On 25 December 1976, the album was voted Rock Album of the Year by London's Melody Maker. It was also listed at #5 on the 1976 Pazz & Jop poll.
