BONNIE DOBSON 1969
In 1969, Bonnie Dobson re-recorded “Morning Dew” for an eponymous album that was released in the United States on RCA. The album was produced by Jack Richardson, a Canadian who is best-known as the Guess Who’s producer. (Richardson also produced albums by Alice Cooper, Poco, Badfinger, and Bob Seger’s very successful Night Moves.)
Dobson’s previous album had what one reviewer termed a “sparse, chaste style” – most of the tracks featured only Dobson’s voice and an acoustic guitar (Think early Joan Baez.). But her 1969 album represented a shift in style from traditional folk to middle-of-the-road pop – the arrangements incorporated a little percussion but a lot of strings (Think Bobbie Gentry without the Southern accent.)
I like this arrangement of “Morning Dew” a lot. Dobson has a very pure soprano voice, and her vocal style is simple and straightforward. There’s nothing groundbreaking about the arrangement or her performance, but there’s nothing objectionable either. Primum non nocere – “first, do no harm” – applies to musical performance as much as it does to the practice of medicine. The lyrics on Dobson’s 1969 recording of “Morning Dew” are slightly different from the original lyrics. This version has five verses, although the first and last verses are essentially identical. (…)
THE BEE GEES’ 1ST
“ (…) The Bee Gees were one of the biggest bands in pop history thanks to their many disco singles in the seventies; albums like Saturday Night Fever’s soundtrack are filled with cheesy, yet ultra catchy classics, but that success overshadows their earlier work of the sixties and many people will laugh when you tell them that they used to be as important in the psychedelic pop scene as bands like The Zombies or The Beach Boys.
“1st” was the first album by the band released worldwide and even if it has some flaws is still an essential record for every psych pop fan.
(…)The band’s international debut isn’t a perfect album; still, the instrumentation is superb and extremely influenced by bands like The Beach Boys (Pet Sounds) with many baroque accompaniments and lyrics that aren’t of this world – even if a couple of songs that show some incredible song-writing (…).
