PRX Description:
Dory Previn's first interview with the media in years, this is Part 1 and 2 of "Memories" ,in which she talks about the inspiration for her songs and that showcase her work. Abused as a child, Dory Previn began her songwriting career in Hollywood as soundtrack lyricist with composer Andre Previn. In the late 1960's her work became autobiographical, baring her soul as she related her struggle to heal in songs of exquisite imagery, haunting emotions, tremendous melodic variety, delightful humor and pointed irony. Her seven alubms, critically acclaimed, attracted a dedicated following. Despite the uniqueness and quality of her work, a short performing career limited exposure. Today, information about her passes from one person to another like some occult mystery of ancient wisdom.
