Bridget St. John - Songs For The Gentle Man (180 Gram Gatefold LP)
Release Date: 25 Oct 2010
Label: 4 Men With Beards
Format: Vinyl (single album)
Originally released in 1971 on Dandelion Records this was Bridget St. John's second and, arguably, best album. Produced and scored by Pink Floyd collaborator Ron Geesin, Songs For The Gentle Man was recorded at Sound Techniques in Chelsea (where everybody from Fairport Convention to Nick Drake had made albums) and is a far more sophisticated work than its predecessor. Organized around a small chamber orchestra, Songs For The Gentle Man is a set of cool, pastel songs that simultaneously haunts and soothes: a well-crafted piece of baroque psychedelic folk.
