Bridget St. John was one of the first acts to be signed to John
Peel's Dandelion Record label, in 1969. Bridget went on to record 3
albums for Dandelion (one of which was produced and scored by Pink Floyd
collaborator, Ron Geesin. Bridget also contributed some vocals for Kevin
Ayers' 'Shooting At The Moon' album.
In 1974, Bridget signed to Chrysalis Records and released her 4th album,
Jumblequeen. This was a great folk-rock album, produced by Leo Lyons of
the band Ten Years After. The album includes support from excellent
musicians including the folk guitarist Stefan Grossman, Chick Churchill
(Ten Years After) and Mike Giles (King Crimson). It also features
harmony vocals from Beverley Martin.
This CD is now reissued in agreement with Bridget St John, and it
includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks, recorded in 1975.
'Bumper To Bumper' features Famous Jug Band guitarist Pete Berryman and
'Grow' has Ron Geesin on piano.
This special 'digi-pack' format has an accompanying CD booklet which
