Bridget St John - Thank You For...(Dandelion 2310-193)

Bridget St John's third album and her last for John Peel's Dandelion Records, saw the husky-voiced British singer songwriter mix her own originals with one or two covers, such as Bob Dylan's Love Minus Zero/No Limit and Buddy Holly's Every Day. Joined by members of the band Quiver, who would later join forces with the Sutherland Brothers, together with friends John Martyn, Rick Kemp and Dave Mattacks amongst others, Bridget delivered what could be described as her first folk rock album, yet maintaining some of the pastoral feel exemplified in her previous two records. The LP also features versions of the traditional Lazarus and Silver Coin, penned by Hunter Muskett's Terry Hiscock.
