1. Product Details

Co-release with Shagrat Records. Fifty years after her elegantly enchanting debut LP Ask Me No Questions was issued by John Peels Dandelion label Bridget St. John releases her first live vinyl. About time In the intervening decades Ms. St. John issued four gorgeous LPs during the 1970s then had a quiet spell after moving to the U.S. In the 90s a sequence of crucial archival recordings on John Toblers Road Goes on Forever label as well as Nigel Crosss peerless Shagrat imprint started appearing. She began playing live again as well appearing at Phil McMullens Boston Terrastock among other places. With the release of Live at the Betsey Trotwood Bridget demonstrates to all and sundry that her musical powers are undiminished. Beautifully recorded at the Betsey in London the set mixes newer originals Castaway The Hole in Your Heart etc. with classics from her repertoire Fly High Ask Me No Questions and some lovely covers. These range from Joni Mitchells The Fiddle and the Drum segueing into a Trump-informed version of America the Beautiful to a sweet take on Michael Chapmans Rabbit Hills from Fully Qualified Survivor. Listening to this set I am actually reminded of Chapman with whom Bridget has been touring recently. Both of them seem to be ever advancing their voices growing richer and stronger as they accrue experience the beauty and power of their guitar playing diminishing not one whit. We are extremely honored to present a new LP by Bridget St. John and truly believe it will slay you as fully as it did us. -Byron Coley 2019 Edition of 500.
