Linda Lewis: Lark [Reprise, 1973]
This convent-educated West Indian Londoner has a cute voice, all blithe and flighty, but she also wrote all twelve of these songs and produced herself at age twenty-two--beneath the little girl who likes the flowers in your toes there's a hard-headed woman who wouldn't care if your moon was in the dustbin. How hard you're willing to look for the woman--and thus enjoy the girl's deft, sprightly, folkish music--depends on your tolerance for or attraction to cute facades. Mine decreases every time I listen.
