Blessed with a distinctive voice largely defined by a rich, cello-like timbre, the English singer and guitarist Bridget St. John was brought to the attention of the adventurous guitarist John Martyn by fellow singer Robin Frederick. Recorded in a brief session that lasted for some nine or ten hours, debut album 'Ask Me No Questions' features Martyn on second guitar on opener 'To Be Without A Hitch' and the equally chilling 'Curl Your Toes,' as well as the haunting title track, while future Fairport Convention and Soft Machine member Ric Sanders appears on 'Lizard Tongue Boy' and 'Many Happy Returns.'

Also available: ASK ME NO QUESTIONS/RABBIT HILLS (7").
