For The Love Of Him. Bonnie Dobson. 8. Le Roi.
A pioneer of Canadian folk music, Bonnie Dobson was born in Toronto in 1940, and watched her older sister get involved in music as part of the group The Travellers. Her switch to Bear Family Records included distribution from Mercury, and she returned to the studios in the spring of '64 for her critically acclaimed FOR THE LOVE OF HIM album. With new producer Bobby Scott, it showed more focus on personal relationships than her previous works, featuring the title track and "Lovin' Johnny," but still stayed true to her roots with her rendition of "Un Canadian Errant" and "Peggy Gordon. But she found herself without a deal when the label went bankrupt a year later.
