Beware Of Young Girls: The Songs Of Dory Previn

Description

A new album interpreting the songs of one of the 1970s' best-loved and least-covered singer songwriters, who died on Valentine's Day this year. As featured on Jools Holland's Radio 2 show and Woman's Hour. Acclaimed jazz singer Kate Dimbleby, accompanied by Naadia Sheriff on piano, re-visit the songs of seventies icon Dory Previn. Hits such as "Lady with the Braid", the most potent of revenge songs, "Beware of Young Girls", about the elfin Mia Farrow, combine with uproarious gospel numbers like "Did Jesus have a Baby Sister?". this is a loving look at Dory's life, and the music that marked it, from a traumatic childhood, via Hollywood scandal and mental breakdown, to finding her voice with uncompromising tales of love and loneliness. Dory used music to write herself sane; with heart, soul, and a liberal sprinkling of Mae West wit, her songs still do the same for us.
