Bridget St. John - Ask Me No Questions

Bridget St. John - "Ask Me No Questions" on stereo Dandelion D9-101.

If you like soft 60s folk by a beautiful female vocalist, you'll love this
lp. This lady combines the feelings that Joan Baez and Buffy St. Marie
were so famous for with a melodious voice and a wonderful guitar that
she plays unbelievably well.

Produced by John Peel, as you would expect, the album is perfect -
Bridget's guitar and vocal, with backup guitar by Ric Sanders or John Martyn,
flow together to produce wonderful fluid, floating feelings. The stereo
editing is fantastic! It's like you're sitting on stage between the guitar
on one side and Bridget on the other side...and she is singing only to you.

Close your eyes while listening to this album and you'll feel yourself slipping
away from the cares that tie you to this sometimes dreary old world of ours into
a realm of soothing peace.

My favorite cut is the last, "Ask Me No Questions" - I swear I can see the birds and
feel the bells.

Bridget wrote all the words and composed all the music for this lp. As far as I
am concerned, her face matches her music - beauty for the ear and the eye.

Find this music. Listen to it in the quiet. Enjoy it for always.

Elektra licensed six albums from John Peel and Clive Selwood's Dandelion label during 1970-'71, two of which were by Bridget St. John. If you like this album, her 1971 follow-up Songs for the Gentle Man, US Dandelion EKS-74104, as well as her third LP, Thank You For, UK Dandelion 2310 193 (no US release), are worth pursuing.
