"From 1967 to ’68, Dyble was the original lead singer in Fairport Convention. Here she collaborates with Tim Bowness from No-Man, who produced and co-wrote the songs with Dyble, as well as peforming alongside her. Dyble’s open fragility and English Rose-nature is heard best on the 19-minute nostalgic epic Harpsong. Melodically entrancing and star-studded, Talking With Strangers includes contributions from King Crimson’s Robert Fripp and Ian McDonald, plus Pentangle’s Jacqui McShee. Without a doubt, Dyble’s best album to date." (Record Collector)
"British vocalist Judy Dyble is one of the founding members of the celebrated folk-rock ensemble Fairport Convention. After leaving the band, she became involved in transitory but critically successful musical endeavors, and eventually retired from the music scene to raise a family. Four decades later she reinvented her career with this album ... An insightful and glistening, multilayered production abets this extraordinary set. With rigorous attention to detail, the musicians play all the right notes in support of Dyble's earnest lyricism, wistful vocals and eminent artistry. Hopefully, she will enter the studio relatively soon for an encore." (AllAboutJazz)
