Reviews :

« The second album Judee Sill made proved to be her last. This brief though enjoyable outing took its toll on Sill -- a notoriously slow songwriter -- during its making, turning her back to her recently kicked heroin addiction and away from the desire to create more music. Instead of using an outside arranger for the strings (as she did on her previous album), Sill did all of the work herself. Her lack of formal training and the immense amount of orchestral overdubs certainly would have made such an outing a hardship for anyone. The album doesn't suffer much from its sometimes syrupy exterior, though -- the songs are almost as strong as any of those from her debut. To wit, Heart Food suffers only in comparison to its predecessor; otherwise, it's a stellar example of the kind of singer/songwriter fare the music industry was mining in the early '70s. The supporting cast of top L.A. studio musicians solidifies Sill's unique brand of country-flavored pop, which moves from introspective meanderings to loping rock, often within a single song. [This edition of the album contains bonus tracks.] » AllMusic Review by Alex Stimmel

"With strings, a wide range of instruments, and vocal overdubs, Heart Food has several layers, so it runs the risk of becomming congested, but the Intervention LP, mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio and pressed at RTI, sounds remarkably open and spacious, the warm sonics a perfect match for such heartfelt music." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound

"This sequel to her eponymous debut would be the last released in her lifetime. If you fell in love with her music because of it, Heart Food will increase your sadness at her demise. Released in 1973, it enhanced her reputation with material left over from the first album, but re-recorded for this set, while stand-out tracks from this eloquent, elegiac singer-songwriter include "The Kiss" and "There's A Rugged Road", both oft-covered. Behind her were stellar musicians including Chris Etheridge on bass, drummer Jim Gordon, bluegrass deity Doug Dillard on banjo, and Buddy Emmons on pedal stell guitar. Yes, this is another masterpiece." Hi-Fi News
