Claire Hamill is an obscure British singer-songwriter whose career flourished briefly in the early 1970s. I am not at all sure how I heard of her but I own two of her albums, 1973's October and 1974's Stage Door Johnnies which was produced by The Kink's Ray Davies. Both are wonderful albums in my opinion. I literally wore out my copy of October. In this day and age of CDs and MP3s I'd quite forgotten about her until something reminded me of her early last year. I found October on the iTunes store and bought it. "Speedbreaker" was my favorite song on the album.
