Dream Babes Volume 5: Folk Rock and Faithfull CD

Continuing the series that focuses on british female recordings of the sixties.The rise of folk rock in the mid 60's, together with that of the singer/songwriter troubador, are the backdrop and theme to this new edition of the Dream Babes series. The arrival in '65 of Marianne Faithfull encouraged many producers to push forward their own wistful and innocent proteges. Examples abound here, such as Trisha with a Donovan song, and include Faithfull's guitarist of the time Caroline Carter. The latter a Tony Calder Production (at times Andrew Loog Oldhams business partner) , with another example being Phillipa Lewis on a number written and musically directed by Jimmy Page (one of four tracks on this album that Page had a hand in). Not all were in the Faithfull field and Page's work in London with beau Jackie De Shannon yielded some cracking Folkrock gems such as De Shannons own Don?t Turn Your Back On Me. An immediate successor to Faithfull , but who later found her own niche , is Vashti . Her recordings with Loog Oldham, appearance in the cult film Tonite Lets All Make Love in London, and classic album ' Just Another Diamond Day ' are some examples. The two tracks here are from '66 after she'd come down from Oxford where she had been part of an art and music scene with Jennifer Lewis & Angela Strange. This circle also included Michael Palin. More of this great interweaving story and history is to be found on the essay written by Bob Stanley for the album . With unreleased tracks and first time reissues this album not only sounds good but contains many rarities as well. A perfect addition to the series!
