Caroline Peyton

Before she was voicing Disney films and performing alongside Linda Ronstadt and Andy Gibb in stage productions of The Pirates of Penzance, Caroline Peyton cut two beautiful jazz-folk LPs for Bloomington, Indiana’s BRBQ Records. Both were issued in limited quantities to near-universal shoulder shrugs. Mock Up was the drug-damaged hippy stepsister to Joni Mitchell’s Blue, a darkly orgasmic love letter between Peyton and producer Mark Bingham and a sparsely arranged chronicle of the rise and fall of their tumultuous relationship. And sure, Rolling Stone called Intuition a “near state of the art album by a pop female vocalist,” but that was hardly a ringing endorsement for the ravenous record buying public of 1977.
