CD: Wendy Rule: Live at the Castle Under the Hill (1997)
This album was recorded in January this year on a rainy night in Uki, Northern NSW (Australia). The building itself was very beautiful, and the setting was magnificent. After casting circle and creating sacred space, Timothy and I performed acoustic versions of songs from all of my albums, as well as our latest song, Vasalisa. I think it was one of our finest performances, and I was thrilled when our sound guy, Rich Bell, said that he had recorded the show! The result is raw and absolutely live, and perfectly captures my current, stripped back live sound, including lots of stories and ritual. I love it, and I think you will too! What it lacks in polished production it definitely makes up for in energy.
