Gilkyson, Eliza

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Gilkyson, Eliza - Pilgrims Pilgrims
Folk New - LP 171007 Gold Castle
Sealed 1987 Original. “Eliza Gilkyson's 1987 Solo Debut Was A Precursor To The Floaty Singer-Songwriter Style Later Turned Into An Art Form By The Likes Of Enya. Gilkyson Comes From A Background That Mixes Up Folk Songs And Unrepentantly Melodic Pop Music, The Mixture Of Which Shows Rather Well In This Gently Engrossing Album. If One Goes By The Interesting Use Of Tarot As Part Of The Album's Overall Concept, And By The Low-Key, Mixed Acoustic And Synthesizer Production, It's Easy To See Why This Particular Record Ended Up Being Adopted By The New Age Crowd — Apparently Much To The Distress Of Gilkyson, Who Would, It Seems, Rather Be Appealing To Rock Crowds. It's Interesting, However, That The Album Is Now Being Pitched On The Basis Of The Popular "Calling All Angels" At A Time When Fascination With The Idea Of Angels Has Reached An All-Time Peak. Pilgrims Is An Album Of Well Done, Pleasant Songs Vaguely Built On The Story Of Tristan And Isolde And Less Vaguely Built On Ideas To Do With The Concept Of Love In A Variety Of Forms. The Album Packaging, By The Way, Is Beautiful Stuff.” – Steven McDonald, All Music Guide.... more details

Legends Of Rainmaker
Folk Used - LP D1 71323 Gold Castle
Beautiful 1989 Original With Custom Insert. Appears Unplayed. “Eliza Gilkyson Is The Sister Of Guitarist Tony Gilkyson, Known For His Work With Country-Rockers Lone Justice And Punk/Alternative Rockers X. But Legends Of Rainmaker, Which Employs Tony On Acoustic Guitar, Generally Sounds Nothing Like His Work With Those Bands. An Introspective, Often Pastoral Folk-Pop/Rock Gem, The Acoustic-Oriented Album Is Essential Listening For Fans Of Singer/Songwriters. Eliza Gilkyson Is Blessed With An Impressive Range And A Penchant For Very Poetic, Yet Lucid And Accessible, Lyrics — Things That Serve Her Quite Well On This Thoughtful Material, Some Of It Inspired By Native American Culture. She Increases The Tempo And Rocks Out A Bit On The Mary-Chapin Carpenter-Ish "Rosie Strikes Back" (A Country-Rock Number Urging A Battered Wife To Leave Her Tormenter), But On The Whole, Gilkyson Thrives On Slow Tempos, Restraint And Quiet Reflection.” – Alex Henderson, All Music Guide... more details
