Up Where We Belong – Best Of CD (1996)
Up Where We Belong brings together music from three decades of recording. Released in 1994, this 15 track collection consists of re-recordings of songs from her Vanguard Records albums of the ’60s and ‘70s plus other songwriting hits. Early songwriting successes included “Universal Soldier” (reaching #53 for Donovan in 1965 and the anthem of the Vietnam Peace Movement), “Until It’s Time for You to Go” (covered by both Barbra Streisand and the Boston Pops), “Now That the Buffalo’s Gone” (among Buffy’s most notable political Native American anthems) and the old time Appalachian folk song “Cripple Creek.” Though Buffy did not record between 1976 and 1992 she continued to write including co-writing the Oscar-winning number one 1982 hit “Up Where We Belong,” included here as an acoustic guitar arrangement. Buffy returned to recording in 1992 with Coincidence and Likely Stories and included here are “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,” a song about injustices to Native Americans, and folksinger Cliff Eberhardt’s beautiful “Goodnight.” For casual fans this is the best starting point, and for die hards this disc contains exclusive versions not available elsewhere.
