Kate & Anna McGarrigle: “Complante Pour Ste-Catherine” (1980)

Montreal-born Kate and Anna McGarrigle’s introduction to an international audience came via Linda Ronstadt’s recording of their “Heart Like a Wheel” as the title track of one of her platinum-selling albums.

Their French Record, from 1980, is a favorite among fans, even those who don’t know a word of French.

Kate McGarrigle and Louden Wainwright III (of 1970’s “Dead Skunk” fame) are the parents of Rufus and Martha Wainwright.
