Anthology Recordings is honored to present I’m the Sky: Studio and Demo Recordings, 1964–1971 a comprehensive survey of the pioneering folk artist Norma Tanega’s two commercially released studio albums, an unreleased album, and a trove of unheard demos.

Tanega landed in Greenwich Village in 1963, and became active in the coffee house scene and early protests against the Vietnam War. Up-and-coming producer and arranger Herb Bernstein caught Tanega perform and introduced her to songwriter Bob Crewe. The trio found their first collaborative success in 1966 when Tanega’s “Walkin’ My Cat Named Dog” rocketed to #22 on the American and British charts. While touring in support of her debut full-length Walkin’ My Cat Named Dog, Tanega met Dusty Springfield. The pair became fast friends, then partners in a committed long-distance relationship. Tanega moved to London to be with Springfield, for whom she also went on to write and co-write a number of songs. While in London, in 1969 Tanega recorded Snow Cycles, a second album that would never see the light of day, and I Don’t Think it Will Hurt if You Smile, eventually released with little fanfare in 1971.
