|Buffy Sainte-Marie chronology|
Coincidence and Likely Stories was the thirteenth studio album by Buffy Sainte-Marie but her first in sixteen years, during which time she had been raising her son and working on the children's television show Sesame Street. The album itself was largely recorded at Sainte-Marie's home before being sent to producer Chris Birkett for the final production and mixing in London.
Although the album received some very favourable reviews and was often seen as her best work since Illuminations, it failed to make any impression in the United States. Coincidence and Likely Stories became her only album to chart in the UK, and featured two minor hit singles there.
The album title itself comes from the first line of the song "Disinformation":
- Coincidence and likely stories/they dog your trail like a pack of lies
