Product Description

Product Description

A new album interpreting the songs of one of the 1970s’ best-loved and least-covered singer songwriters, who died on Valentine’s Day this year. As featured on Jools Holland’s Radio 2 show and Woman’s Hour.

Acclaimed jazz singer Kate Dimbleby, accompanied by Naadia Sheriff on piano, re-visit the songs of seventies icon Dory Previn. Hits such as “Lady with the Braid”, the most potent of revenge songs, “Beware of Young Girls”, about the elfin Mia Farrow, combine with uproarious gospel numbers like “Did Jesus have a Baby Sister?”. this is a loving look at Dory’s life, and the music that marked it, from a traumatic childhood, via Hollywood scandal and mental breakdown, to finding her voice with uncompromising tales of love and loneliness. Dory used music to write herself sane; with heart, soul, and a liberal sprinkling of Mae West wit, her songs still do the same for us.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr.D.Treharne VINE VOICE on 29 July 2012
Format: Audio CD
Whilst this CD made me dig out all the vinyl albums, it's more than just a "cover" album, it seems to be coherent attempt to re-interpret what are quirky yet considered views of elements of Dory's life. That it works is not just about Kate Dimbleby, but also (and as importantly) it's about the sympathetic support that she receives from Naadia Sheriff who adds not only piano, but also in places accordian, percussion, organ (Hammond B3?) and some eerily effective vocal harmony and support. It leaves Dimbleby to interpret the songs in her own style, with fantastically clear enunciation and diction.It means that some of the 'lesser' known songs have new life. My favourites are "The Lady with the braid", "Lemon Haired Ladies" and especially "Angels and Devils". I bet it's a stunning live show! This is an album not only for those who already know Previn's work, but also a great way into the output of two emerging talents. I'm inclined to say "Wonderful!", but it's rather more than that.

Wonderfully sung, impeccably accompanied, magically recorded. Far more than just a cover, this is a personal re-reading of Dory Previn that stops one in one's tracks. A classic, simply unmissable.

These songs stick in your memory long after you have listened to them. I first heard one on the radio and I just could not get it out of my brain and so I bought this CD. And I have not been disappointed, as this is a delightful collection of subversive lyrics that keep you thinking about their meaning long after the tune is over.
