Buffy Sainte-Marie, una mezza pellerossa che si uni` alle schiere dei pacifisti del Greenwich Village con Universal Soldier (1964), scrisse anche le celebri Codine (1964), Until It's Time For You To Go (1966) e Piney Wood Hills (1967). It's My Way (Vanguard, 1964), Many A Mile (Vanguard, 1965), Little Wheel Spin (Vanguard, 1966) e Fire And Fleet And Candle Light (Vanguard, 1967) sono gli album dell'epoca d'oro.
Nel 1968 si converti` anche lei, come tutti, al country di Nashville con I'm Gonna Be A Country Girl Again (Vanguard, 1968), ma diede il suo capolavorono con l'album Illuminations (Vanguard, 1969), arrangiato in maniera elettronica dal compositore Michael Czajkowski in modo da fungere da ponte fra il folk psichedelico di Tim Buckley e il folle lirismo di Diamanda Galas (God Is Alive).
She Used To Wanna Be A Ballerina (Vanguard, 1971), con l'accompagnamento di Ry Cooder e dei Crazy Horse (il complesso di Neil Young), la riabilito`, ma fu seguito da un album di mainstream pop come Moonshot (Vanguard, 1972) e dall'altrettanto mediocre Quiet Places (Vanguard, 1973).
Natural North American Child (MCA, 1974), Changing Woman (MCA, 1975) e Sweet America (MCA, 1976) sono album di rock generico.
Sposata a Jack Nitzsche, negli anni '80 Sainte-Marie avra` successo componendo colonne sonore (Up Where We Belong, 1983).

Buffy Sainte-Marie, a Native American mestizo who joined the throngs of Greenwich Village pacifists with Universal Soldier (1964), also wrote the celebrated Codine (1964), Until It's Time For You To Go (1966) and Piney Wood Hills (1967). It's My Way (Vanguard, 1964), Many A Mile (Vanguard, 1965), Little Wheel Spin (Vanguard, 1966) and Fire And Fleet And Candle Light (Vanguard, 1967) are albums from that gilded age.

In 1968, along with everybody else, Buffy Sainte-Marie converted to Nashville with I'm Gonna Be A Country Girl Again (Vanguard, 1968), but gave her best with Illuminations (Vanguard, 1969). That album, arranged electronically by the composer Michael Czajkowski, was the bridge that connected Tim Buckley's psychedelic folk to the crazy lyricism of Diamanda Galas (God Is Alive).

She Used To Wanna Be A Ballerina (Vanguard, 1971), accompanied by Ry Cooder and Crazy Horse (Neil Young's band) reestablished her, but was followed by the mainstream pop album Moonshot (Vanguard, 1972) and by the equally mediocre Quiet Places (Vanguard, 1973).

Natural North American Child (MCA, 1974), Changing Woman (MCA, 1975) and Sweet America (MCA, 1976) are albums of generic rock.

Married to Jack Nitzsche, in the 80s she became a successful soundtrack composer (Up Where We Belong, 1983).
