Kate Wolf Albums
Kate Wolf Albums
In her lifetime, Kate released seven albums, including a double live album and a double retrospective collection. Subsequently, record companies, in conjunction with Kate's family, have released five posthumous albums, with a sixth on the way!
Kate Wolf’s affinity for the California coast is reflected in this collection of twenty songs from Mendocino area concerts, including eight previously unreleased (three by Kate).
With the help of fans and friends, Kate’s family compiled a definitive collection of her work spanning her entire career, including live and posthumous releases. The 2½ hour double album also includes three previously unreleased songs. The 44-page booklet traces Kate’s life in pictures and a 10,000 word essay.
Compiled by Nina Gerber, these recordings were made in Berkeley, California, from 1978 to 1981. Kate’s five songs, including two previously unreleased, were written around the same period. These songwriters represent some of Kate’s major influences, especially Gil “Jellyroll” Turner, author of the title track.
Currently only available on vinyl (LP).
A Collection Of Studio Recordings, Radio Shows And Live Performances. Compiled by Kate's longtime accompanist, Nina Gerber. Includes a studio version of Give Yourself To Love as well as the last song that Kate wrote and recorded.

When Kate became ill, she began compiling this collection and finished it just before she became unable to work. Kate selected all the songs and photographs, and wrote the notes for the cover. It was awarded NAIRD Best Folk Album of 1987.
