GUEST,Lin Judy Hill - 1960's Folk Singer, Atlanta (7) Judy Hill - 1960's Folk Singer, Atlanta 26 Nov 15


I have this obscure folk LP by an American folk singer named,
Judy Hill. The name of the LP is "The Folk Sounds of Atlanta Presents the Versatile Voice of Judy Hill."
Record Company is called, Criteria Record Dist. Atlanta, Georgia

There is no date at all anywhere on the record itself or on the LP jacket cover. However, my guess is that it is probably from about 1965 based on the folk songs she sings (all covers or trad songs) like Four Strong Winds, This Train, Motherless Child, The Cruel War and others. Also, the picture of Judy Hill on front of LP jacket is typical of early or mid-60s.

I tried doing a search on Google but came up with nothing, only a current young singer named Judith Hill who is black and not the same person as Judy Hill from the 1960's.

Does anyone know of Judy Hill? I also tried looking up the record company which was probably a small company - Criteria Record Dist. but found nothing. No other musicians are listed and I think it was just Judy Hill and her guitar only.
Record company probably long gone anyway.
There is a record company engineer listed named Gordon Able from Atlanta Sound Recording Studios, Inc. but still no luck there either.

Judy Hill looks very young in the photograph, maybe 20 or 21 (or maybe even a little younger) with short hair, holding her guitar. (black & white photo)

If anyone knows of this singer please post. I only have this one LP so don't know if she released any others but once again it is not Judith Hill who's name came up on Google when I typed in "Judy Hill"
Judith Hill is a Black singer and current and Judy Hill is Caucasian singer from the mid-60's.

Thank you.
