A Collection of Album Highlights, Singles and B Sides, Demos, Live Recordings, Sessions, and Interviews-
Unique new collection from one of the most distinctive voices in British folk/psych music. Highlights, rarities and unreleased tracks from Bridget St. John’s Dandelion Records period (1968-1972).
Bridget St John remains a cornerstone of the British folk movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s, and still performs to adoring audiences today.
This set expands on the usual ‘best of’ to include a cornucopia of extra material which goes beneath the surface to explore further the dawning of this wonderful talent. Key tracks from three classic albums + never before on CD 1968 demos; the debut release of three tracks recorded live for French TV; first ever release for interview material and 2009 session recordings (featuring Michael Chapman) exclusive to Cherry Red TV; also includes BBC session highlights, singles and b-sides.
Complete with excellent essay by long term Bridget authority and friend Nigel Cross.
