In terms of Numero Group output, this one seemed to have slid in under the radar last year – the label’s inaugural release on their Numerophone imprint, Niela Miller’s Songs For Leaving. Culled from a “warped acetate cut at Variety Recording Service in 1962”, Songs Of Leaving is the complete songbook of New York folkie Niela Miller. Miller’s “Baby Don’t Go To Town” would later be co-opted by her then boyfriend and re-purposed as “Hey Joe“…a song that requires no introduction.
