RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2018

• Comprehensive collection of three key albums from legendary folk/acid folk artist Bridget St John, all fetching top dollar in their original vinyl format.

• Plus a host of tracks recorded for the BBC between 1968 and 1972.

• A total of 66 essential tracks spread across four discs.

Discovered and nurtured by the late, great John Peel, Bridget St John was one of the UK’s leading folk voices of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

This comprehensive box set includes the three sensational albums recorded for Peel’s Dandelion label, plus live recordings and recordings made for the BBC between 1968 and 1972.

“Bridget St John proved to be the closest Dandelion got to acid folk and psychedelia; her two later albums for the label contain flashes of avant- garde adventurousness, but are closer in spirit to Nick Drake or a post- Fotheringay Sandy Denny.” Seasons They Change

The album set is packaged in mini LP sleeve replicas and the booklet includes memorabilia, and comprehensive sleevenotes.

The BBC material includes songs unavailable elsewhere and collaborations with the late great Kevin Ayers.

Compiled with the approval of Bridget herself, this is a must for any collector of UK folk.
