Anne Briggs began singing in local folk clubs in her teens. In 1962 she became part of the Centre 42 tour which was a leftist group of artists, writers, actors and musicians whose aim was to make arts and culture accessible to the masses. Briggs debut EP, The Hazards Of Love, was produced by Lloyd. Lloyd also recorded Briggs for Topic released albums The Iron Muse and The Bird In The Bush. In 1971 Anne Briggs recorded her debut full length album simply named Anne Briggs. Briggs recorded a follow up album The Time Has Come later that same year for CBS, but it sold poorly and was rapidly deleted. Two years later she recorded again but blocked the album's release because she was so disheartened by her singing. The album Sing A Song For You finally emerged some 23 years later and three songs are featured on this release and feature the group Ragged Robin (with Steve Ashley) and fiddler Barry Dransfield. Specially selected 15 track compilation / Tracks from the rare Hazards Of Love Topic E.P. and Topic solo LP / 3 Tracks from the long lost Sing A Song For You LP.
