She Used to Wanna Be a Ballerina /Buffy Sainte-Marie
She Used to Wanna Be a Ballerina /Buffy Sainte-Marie was released in 1971, produced by Jack Nizsche and herself. Liner says, "Thanks to Ry Cooder, Russ Titleman, Jesse Davis, Crazy Horse, Danny Whitten, Ralph Morina, Billy Talbot, Neil Young", etc. I found this album at Neil Young's official archives. Buffy Sainte-Marie, born Beverly Sainte-Marie, February 20, 1941, is an Academy Award-winning Canadian First Nations musician, composer, visual artist, educator and social activist. I can't find each song's credit, but Neil Young & Crazy Horse joined the recording, I believe. She sings Young's "Helpless", Gerry Goffin/Carol King's "Smack Water Jack". We can hear early 70' sound here.
