ASK ME NO QUESTIONS plus two extra tracks,
This review is from: Ask Me No Questions (Audio CD)
Definitely the best British female singer songwriter EVER. I first heard this album in 1969 and was instantly hooked on her unusually deep (but oh so pleasant) voice, her brilliant acoustic guitar playing in various tunings and plenty of bass notes and above all the 'get back to the country' lyrics. Every track is brilliantly and minimally produced by John Peel. She reminds me of Donovan when she sings the line 'Buttercup sandwich' - it took me years to discover that it comes from Beatrix Potter. The title track ends with various bird song recordings plucked by Peel from the Beeb Archives. That gets a mention in his autobiography as people kept asking how come birds from around the globe were recorded together in one place! Buy it - but buy the others too - they're all great in their own way. here's to another CD soon!
