Description

Where Do I Come From is a collection of songs by Maggie Roche (1951-2017) that spans forty years, providing a glimpse into one of our most original American songwriters. Maggie was at the center of the long-running and much-admired music group The Roches, created with her sisters Terre and Suzzy. Maggie composed her songs for three voices to sing, fashioning the signature sound of The Roches. Where Do I Come From is a 32 track 2CD set of Maggie’s songs, spanning her entire music career from her 1979 duo album with her sister Terre, through the Roches 2007 reunion record. The collection, which has been compiled in close collaboration with Suzzy, also features 4 previously unreleased recordings: “Stayin’ Home,” an early song provides a snapshot of a young feisty Maggie as she ventures out into the world. “Down The Dream,” a live studio track, was recorded after word that Columbia Records had doubts about the progress Maggie and Terre were making in their recording sessions. Another version of the song wound up on Seductive Reasoning, but this demo is classic, unedited Maggie Roche.  “Where Do I Come From,” the title track, was found among Maggie’s things after her death and is most likely the last song she wrote. The newly recorded Christmas song, “Christmas Love,” was not written in time to make it onto We Three Kings, the Roches beloved Christmas recording. Her family, in loving memory, sings “Christmas Love” for this collection.
