Norma Tanega- I’m the Sky: Studio and Demo Rerecords, 1964-1971

2022, Anthology Records

You don’t realize you know who she is through her songs but you do. Her most famous song “You’re Dead” is that title track for “What We Do In The Shadows (Television show and Movie). She also wrote songs for Dusty Springfield “The Color Of Your Eyes” and “No Stranger Am I”. This collection of demos are full of badass folk jams that will have you swaying and sometimes shakin that booty. Listen to “Walkin My Cat Named Dog” and “You’re Dead” and try and tell me they didn’t make you at least tap your foot. This collection showcases Norma Tanega’s knack for writing beautiful songs of protest, love, and triumph. Please check this album out! For fans of Bob Dylan, Jim Croce, and Vashti Buyan.


There you go! We have these albums in stock at the shop so feel free to swing by and pick one or all of these up!

Have a great weekend, y’all!
