Mention of the legendary Bridget St John often seems to induce a misty-eyed, faraway look; many a student room in the Sixties and Seventies would have echoed to her distinctive voice.
She recorded three albums on John Peel’s Dandelion label from 1969-72, before moving to New York. Bridget’s impressive voice is deep and resonant. It’s a voice made for melancholy, and you can’t argue with her musical ability, whether it is singing Dylan, a tribute to her friend John Martyn or her own work, such as Ask Me No Questions.
