"Bridget St. John was one of the first acts to be signed to John Peel's Dandelion Record label in 1969. She recorded 3 albums there before she was signed to Chrysalis Records in 1974. Throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s, Bridget made many unique recordings for BBC Radio, mostly for John Peel. None of those recordings have ever been released on CD until now. Compiled by Bridget herself, this set features the best of her BBC radio concerts and sessions, including her very first Peel session, recorded in 1968. Several of these songs are released here for the first time. This double disc release is packaged in a lavish full colour digipak with an accompanying 20-page color booklet featuring extensive liner notes, an interview with Bridget, plus several rare photographs from Bridget's own archive. The tracks are a mixture of solo and band recordings, and three songs are duets with Kevin Ayers. These CDs have been digitally remastered by Ron Geesin (who also produced Bridget's second Dandelion LP in 1971)."
