TIA BLAKE & her folk group – Folksongs & Ballads (1971)


Folksongs and Ballads by Tia Blake & Her Folk-Group, is more than just a “lost classic”. When Tia recorded her only album, she was nineteen years old and had just arrived in Paris. She spent most of her time at Disco’Thé, a record shop in the Latin Quarter, a free space, peaceful and inspiring, a hub for students as well as the local artistic community. Two young guitarists who were passionate fans of folk music began to accompany her, forming “Her Folk Group.” One year later, they cut 11 tracks at Pierre Barouh’s Studios Saravah.
