Andrew Dickson's Vera Drake/All Or Nothing
29-Oct-2020 -

Caldera Records presents Andrew Dickson’s music for Mike Leigh’s films Vera Drake and All Or Nothing. While Vera Drake is hailed as one of Leigh’s major works, it is also the crowning opus of Andrew Dickson’s film career. By then, he and the director had already worked together for more than 20 years. For the first time in their films, Dickson and Leigh decided to use a choir. For the folk-like main theme of the film, Dickson used the germ of a sinister song about a fairground he had written previously and which had been performed by a 15-year old P.J. Harvey, a Mercury Prize-winning singer with whom Dickson performed in his local band in Bridport. Also included on this CD are selection from Andrew Dickson’s scores for Someone Else’s America and Oublie-Moi.
