Two-on-one classic seventies recordings

"This is a two-on-one of Dory Previn's first album (On My Way To Where) and her fourth (Mary C Brown & the Hollywood Sign). On My Way To Where was released in 1970, shortly after Previn emerged from hospital where she had been treated for schizophrenia. Many of the songs were written by her as a form of self-help. The most famous (and wonderfully candid) moment on this album is Beware Of Young Girls. Mia Farrow had insinuated herself into the lives of Dory and her husband, Andre Previn. This gentle, sad, but unself-pitying song recounts how Mia betrayed Dory by breaking her marriage. Upon its release, Ms Farrow went into print to call the song "tasteless". Interestingly, Farrow recently (and for the first time) apologised to Dory Previn, in the pages of her autobiography.Mary C Brown is less autobiographical, more outwardly observant. It is a wry and caustic social commentary about Hollywood. Strangely, Previn's singing is completely different on this album; she affects a rather nasal, squeaky timbre. It's still an enjoyable set, though. Best moment: Previn's lacerating remarks about the casting couch on "Starlet Starlet""
A SOMETIMES DARK BUT MOSTLY LIGHT ALBUM

"Mary c brown is an absolute underrated and overlooked classic. From the opening riff of the title track to the screaming soaring finale of Anima/ Anamis, this album sears and burns its way through various aspects of life. From the black humour of poking fun at Midgets to the pain of desperatly trying to find the perfect partner and descovering that there is no such thing, Dory Previn has created an album with such insightful precision that it is almost painful to listen to."
