Rebecca Pidgeon's classic Chesky debut, featuring her stunning version of "Spanish Harlem", reissued on 180g Vinyl!

Reflective yet contemporary, Rebecca's lovely voice rings with honest, unpretentious confidence and vivid tenderness. While her Celtic melodies set the mood, her lyrics tell stories, full, rich, textured, and open hearted. This amazing talent makes her U.S. debut with The Raven, a most striking, powerful and fully realized vocal record for Chesky Records.

Recorded February 12th, 14th & 15th 1994 at MasterSound Studios, Queens, NY. Recorded with minimalist miking techniques and without overdubbing or artificail enhancement to ensure the purest and most natural sound possible.

"...Pidgeon is a clever, surprising songwriter, with a strong command of melody...A major debut and superb recording...a real feast of creativity..." - Jazziz

"With a pure, breathy soprano, Pidgeon is reminiscent of both early Joni Mitchell as well as Sandy Denny... The Raven holds up very well musically, and the minimally-miked recording... is outstanding in a natural as opposed to spectacular way... Pidgeon's lovely, somewhat delicate voice is very nicely catpured and surrounded by cushions of studio air. Her accompanists... are beautfiully balanced into the mix, and there's an easy, organic whole to the LP that's highly appealing." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, April 2017, 4/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics
