Dory Previn - Music
Most people think of Dory Previn as a singer-songwriter who recorded six albums in the early seventies :-
They were not insignificant in terms of sales either in that four of these albums are just outside the top two hundred sellers of all time.
But there was a lot more to Dory's music than these albums, in that she was a successful lyricist for motion picture theme songs during the 1960s and early 1970s, earning three Academy Award nominations for best song :-
Dory also composed songs for Inside Daisy Clover, Harper, Valley of the Dolls and Daddy's Gone a Hunting.
She is still active after a long career and has just released Planet Blue; a free download which is a protest against the war in Iraq.
