mysterious doll #3

CAROLINE CARTER - THE BALLAD OF POSSIBILITIES (COME ALONG)
and another unknown. i found this on the excellent dream babes:folk, rock and faithfull album which, in my opinion, is the best doll compilation of uk 60s girl singers - i wish they'd do a volume 2

mysterious doll #1

BABBITY BLUE - DON'T MAKE ME
such a cute song, despite the dodgy lyrics "i'm such a young girl, so don't make me." although it's known that babbitys real name was barbara chalk there doesn't seem to a picture of her.

if you listen - saturday

FRANCOISE HARDY - LET MY NAME BE SORROW
i was given the midnight blues 68-72 cd for christmas and on its first listen i was bit underwhelmed. but repeated listens have proved what a great collection it really is.  english language songs - mostly familiar songs but a few of them were brand new to me. i''m going to post just a few of them over the next few days to give you a taster of the album - but i defo recommend getting it for your collection.
