"Best known as the writer of the apocalyptic '60s folk-rock standard 'Morning Dew,' Canadian Bonnie Dobson became a mover on the Chicago and New York folk revival scenes and released five albums in the acoustic folk style between 1960 and 1964. She returned to Toronto in 1965 and continued playing the coffee house circuit without recording any more albums. By the time 'Morning Dew' was being widely recorded by the likes of Fred Neil & Vince Martin (the first to cover it), Tim Rose, The Grateful Dead, Lulu, The Jeff Beck Group and Episode Six in the late '60s she'd upped sticks and moved to England, home of her songwriter heroes Jackson C. Frank, Ralph McTell and Bert Jansch. Signing to RCA Records, she cut a highly-orchestrated version of 'Morning Dew' at their suggestion for her self-titled 1969 'comeback' album, along with strong original material like 'I'm Your Woman' and 'I Got Stung' and covers of hippy-era folk-rock reliables 'Everybody's Talkin',' 'Let's Get Together' and 'You Never Wanted Me.' Dobson's live UK debut was at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in November 1969 and she became a familiar presence on British and European TV and radio for a couple of years. The 1970 follow-up album Good Morning Rain took her MOR/orchestral folk leanings to their logical conclusion and will appear on Rev-Ola in the near future."
