The Bickershaw Programme: Linda Lewis.
By Al Clark.
As happens frequently these days , it managed to get lost in the product machine , virtually unheard , love, time and expense collecting dust on ware house shelves and record browsers. Even now , its a fairly accurate reflection on Linda's spirit and approach, although the detailed accompaniments and multitude of distinguished sidemen remain purely a studio situation . The voice, without being flash and stylistically self conscious , has all the range it could hope for. The tunes are sunny, fanciful, intuitively crafted , picked out of the air like all the best ones. The words are alliterative reality of an enchanted earthling who still believes in the magic of the Lovin' Spoonful used to sing about , more dancing in the streets than the Babycham ads.
on stage with her guitar , smiles her winning smile and gives out as much optimism
as her songs. With her they're virtually indivisible and each is as satisfying
as each other. She's very sharp too, No sermonettes, no bogus Spirit of Woodstock.
Trying to be Smiley Smiley all the While is a headful that most can't cope with , but Linda's doing her best., A Happy Maker. There ain't many around.
