Kate and Anna McGarrigle: Kate and Anna McGarrigle (Warner Brothers)

Miles, New Musical Express, 6 March 1976

"THERE’S A song of Kate McGarrigle’s, which Maria Muldaur sang on her first LP, called ‘Work Song’, which is about all the old songs that you sang around the fireplace when you were growing up – ‘Kemptown Races’ and ‘Oh! Suzannah’ and things like that – and there’s a line which says ‘You couldn’t call it soul, you had to call it heart’ and that really defines their music."
