Format: Audio CD
When I first bought this CD, back in 1995 and almost unaware of how Sandy Denny's music (song, lyrycs, voice = talent) would affect my future life, I was still naïve or foreknowing enough to play 'Moments' and 'No End' tirelessly to all my nearest friends at the time. All four of them if you count my mother who was gone in six months - with 'Moments' a special link between us.
Seven years on almost everything caleidoscoped around me. Except for the permanent motif that is me searching for beauty, humanity, comfort and some kind of connection in this album.
Sandy was taken from us/died at 31. Far too soon.
The inclusion of her pivotal song 'Who Knows Where The Time Goes' is completely unexpected here. It's like no version of hers (or others) I've listened to before.
'Listen, Listen' has mutated most beautifully into 'Ecoute, Ecoute'. Her voice soars glorious in 'One More Chance' and 'Rising To The Moon' and the Trevor Lucas N.Ireland-dedicated singing of 'The Town I Loved So Well' just breaks me every time.
By words I cannot do justice do these pieces, so if you have just a little bit of faith in human experience and curiosity in what it might achieve at its highest you'll hopefully just ignore my ramblings and try to get your senses on these songs...

A collection of songs that includes fascinating glimpses of the development of some tracks that Fairport enthusiasts will be familiar with, and also songs that you won't have encountered before. All in all, a mix that should appeal to the serious fan, with production notes that are well written and informative. A good buy.

Sandy Denny at her best. Some of her songs are better sung in French. She has a sweet accent which would appeal to the French.

songs you haven't heard 29 Jun. 2001
By Greg W. Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Good grief! Not one other review of this wonderful CD. If you are a fan you owe it to yourself to get this. Moments and The King and Queen of England are never-before released gems. No End is just Sandy and solo piano -- it is achingly beautiful and much different from the version on Like an Old Fashioned Waltz. Trevor Lucas's version of Forever Young is worth the price of the album. The Town I Loved So Well is also one of those rare vocal performances of Trevor's. He truly was one of the overlooked artists in England's (and Australia's) folk-rock scene. I give this Cd only 4 stars because it has yet another version of Who Knows Where the Time Goes. Must this be on every CD put together after Sandy's death? The booklet that comes with the CD has some great information for Sandy's (and Trevor's) fans. A must have for any Sandy Denny collection.

These are the moments... 22 Feb. 2008
By Peter Baklava - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
British folkrocker Sandy Denny surely possessed one of the great, timeless voices in pop music. This lovely collection commemorates not only Sandy, but her husband Trevor Lucas, who was an exceptional talent in his own right.

Rescued from the attic (hence the title) of Lucas and Denny's quaint Australian cottage, these tracks carry a special poignancy because of their untimely deaths. Sandy will have been gone thirty years this April, and Trevor died nearly twenty years ago. The music here is still extremely vital, but it also reflects brightly on "the golden age of the 1970's", when such kind and gentle music was allowed to thrive.

Another part of the cd's appeal is the deft way in which Sandy and Trevor's separate strengths are balanced. For the most part, the tracks are not collaborations--Sandy sings back-up on one of Trevor's songs, but otherwise these are individual efforts created by artists who happened to be married to each other. The marriage of styles works here because Trevor's honest and roughhewn vocals provide a welcome contrast to Sandy's smokey alto, and vice versa.

Sandy's best moments are on "Easy to Slip" (a Little Feat cover), and "Losing Game", a rocker bumped along nicely by a brass section. Sandy wasn't really known for uptempo numbers, but these prove that she could handle them with zest. "Still Waters Run Deep" and "Gold Dust" point towards Denny's evident fascination with Joni Mitchell, and "No End" and "Moments" show why Sandy is one of the best artists to put on for a contemplative mood.

Trevor Lucas' contributions are equally rich in flavor. "The Town I Loved So Well", and "Forever Young" are folk ballads given wonderful performances. "Breakaway" is a high voltage train song which would have been perfect for Waylon Jennings, and then there is "Girls on the Avenue", which for me is the highlight of the whole album. A hit only in Australia, "Girls" seems like the great, lost 70's song...perfect in its lilting nostalgia.

"Attic Tracks" comes with a booklet explaining the various sessions the songs were taken from, and also provides a nice glimpse of the house where the tapes were stored, and some of Sandy's doodles and manuscripts.

ATTIC TRACKS UNCOVER BOUNTIFUL TREASURES!! 2 Dec. 2013
By Smrz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This review is for the 2007 Australian import released on Raven Records. O.K. what we have here is yet another wonderful compilation with 18 tracks with a running time of over 75 minutes! These tunes were discovered by Mr. John Penhallow, who was Fairport Convention's very 1st manager in 1967. John discovered these songs in the attic of the house that Trevor Lucas had collected and then subsequently stored them in, which was in Epping. They were carefully converted from an old Revox A77 recording machine to cassettes. These tracks are, indeed, a lost-and-found treasure that followers of both Sandy Denny and Trevor Lucas, will be more than a bit delighted to discover! Besides Sandy and Trevor, other musicians on this collection include Richard Thompson, David Pegg, Pat Donaldson, Jerry Conway, and Gerry Donahue. So, once again, the Fairport connection appears. There are some incredible, breathtaking, versions of songs as done by Sandy, as well as Trevor, included here. Opening with the very last tune that Sandy ever recorded at Island Studios, London, in May, 1977, titled "Moments". From this opening track, which is truly excellent, it only continues to get better as we move forward. Track 2 is "The Ballad Of Ned Kelly, written and sung by Trevor, who wrote the song for the Fotheringay L.P. in 1970. Sandy sings along in the background, and the tune sounds very much like The Band. Track 3 is truly an amazing find! It is titled "Ecoute, Ecoute", and is a French language version of the tune, "Listen Listen", from the 1972 Sandy L.P., which was initially intended as a single to be released in France. It is Stunning! Sandy's beautiful voice is supported by Richard Thompson's mandolins. Another stunner is track 4, "One More Chance" which was taken from Sandy's personal collection, which was later given to Fairport Convention to learn from their 1975 Rising For the Moon L.P., which is then followed by Sandy, her piano and metronome on the demo of the title track of that L.P. Track 6 is titled "Tears", in which Trevor wrote and sang while Sandy played piano. This tune was actually the B-side of Fairport's "White Dress" single, which was released for July 1975. Displaying another side of Sandy is the Lowell George penned tune "Easy to Fall", which was recorded by Little Feat. Another cover tune is track 8, "Losing Game", which was a Flying Burrito Brothers chestnut. Other highlights include a rare Sandy b-side titled "Still Waters Run Deep", which was released on the May, 1977, single. Track 12 features Sandy singing "The King And Queen Of England", which leads us to the majestic track 13, titled "No End", in which Sandy performs an extended solo version of the 1973 tune from the Like an Old Fashioned Waltz L.P. She performs the tune on a 12 foot Beckstein concert grand piano. Naturally, it is another stunning version. Trevor Lucas then gives us the Bob Dylan tune "Forever Young", which trevor would frequently use to finish his sets. He makes it his own. Now, the very best is saved to finish this amazing cd. Sandy and her friends performed at the Royalty theater for her very last live concert performance for the final 3 songs. Included in the last set are "Gold Dust", "Stranger to Himself", and the longest and fastest version of her haunting signature song, "Who Knows Where The time Goes", which tracks in at a duration of 6 minutes and 20 seconds. Quite simply the very best version of this beautiful tune that I have ever heard! Well worth the cost of the cd, alone.In addition to the cd, you get a very well annotated 20 page booklet written by Mr. John Penhallow, himself, which I have borrowed some notes from, myself for this review. Included in the booklet which gives info on every track, there are some beautiful pictures of both Sandy and Trevor, including a beautiful photo of the two taken on their wedding day, sept. 20, 1973. As you all know, both Sandy and Trevor are no longer with us. Sandy tragically died from a brain hemorrhage as a result of a fall on 4-21-78, and Trevor died from a heart attack on 2-4-89. One of the other benefits from the cd is that royalties for the sales of the cd will be given to the estate of both Sandy's and Trevor's children, Georgia and Clancy, as well as for Trevor's widow Elizabeth, who was instrumental in gathering these precious treasures together. Now, that alone makes a very worthwhile contribution. MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! SMRZ!!

Pure, pure love 27 Aug. 2011
By Surferofromantica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was very happy to get this album, or at least I was happy right up until I realised that they have now released a 19-disc career retrospective of Sandy Denny. Holy smokes!!!!! But I guess if anyone deserves it, it's Sandy. All of the Sandy Denny songs on this are also in the box (but none of the Trevor Lucas songs are).

This disc was issued in 1995 by Raven Records with the note that "royalties generated by the sale of this disc will be used by the Estate of Sandy Denny and Trevor Lucas to fund the education and/or welfare of their children and Trevor's widow," and that it was released with the co-operation of Island Records International and PolyGram Australia. Sandy and Trevor were in her post-Fairport Convention band Fotheringay together, and they were married from 1973 until Denny's death in March 1978 after a fall down the stairs that left her with a brain haemorrhage. Lucas was a guitarist and singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, who played with Fairport Convention on Unhalfbricking while he was dating Denny. He died in 1989 of a heart attack.

The disc comes with a booklet, lovingly written by John Penhallow, Fairport Convention's first manager in 1967, in Sydney Australia, that talks about how he got to know Trevor and Sandy, how he collected the songs that are on the compilation, and other background stuff. It is one of the better liner notes I've seen, and there is excellent track-by-track notation. The source of the music is Trevor's tape collection. The booklet hints at more tracks that aren't here yet - nine tracks from Sandy's first recordings of 1966/1967, and 15 tracks from what was probably Sandy's last concert (three of the latter are on this disc). The disc also has great images - there is one of Sandy and Trevor on their wedding day, pictures of them performing, shots of record covers and singles, concert posters, and other rare stuff.

For me it was interesting hearing these Sandy Denny songs that I'm unfamiliar with. What a voice! Trevor Lucas I'm unfamiliar with, but he's a great guitar player and has a nice Neil Diamond/Gordon Lightfoot kind of a voice, warm but maybe a bit boring.

The first track is "Moments", an unreleased song that is the last studio track Sandy recorded, in May 1977. Great lyrics: "If I had my life again/ I would choose to be with you, my friend/ Time moves slowly and it goes so fast/ And who knows how long our days will last." Sadly ironic words, and a really beautiful song that gets a lump in the throat. What a voice! "The Ballad of Ned Kelly" Trevor wrote for Fotheringay in 1970 and it sounds like something from The Band. "Ecoute, Ecoute" is a cool French version of Sandy's solo "Listen Listen", supported by Richard Thompson. "One More Chance" is Sandy's voice and piano, the demo for a song she wrote for Fairport Convention in 1975. Ditto for the next song "Rising For The Moon," which has more of a Gaellic twang to it and less oomph in it. Both tunes are stark and beautiful. A Fairport Convention B-side, "Tears" is a fantastic song, written and sung by Lucas in a doleful songwriting way, with great lyrics, and the tale told in each verse ending with the line "The tears that we shared simply dried." "Easy To Slip" is a rockin' Little Feat song, also sadly ironic considering the fall down the stairs that did Sandy in. "Losing Game" is a Flying Burrito Brothers track that has nice horns and a rockin' Sandy Denny vocal. "Girls On The Avenue" is a pop song sung by Trevor that sounds a bit dated, sort of like a minor Neil Diamond song from the time, it was written by Richard Clayton and was a hit in Australia, Lucas hoped it would crack him globally but it never did and later got buried in his attic. Icky background vocals, even though they are by Sandy Denny and Linda Thompson (!!!). "Breakaway" is soundtrack music that has a shuffling train sound to it. "Still Waters Run Deep" sounds a lot like a Joni Mitchell song, and "The King And Queen Of England" sounds like one of those 10,000 Maniacs songs that Nathalie Merchant does on with piano accompaniment, this one is gorgeous. "No End" is also a song with voice and solo piano, a long meandering melancholy reflection on lost friendship and love, and it has great lyrics: "They said that it was snowing in astounded tones upon the news/ I wonder why they're always so surprised 'cos every year it snows." Smartass. But this is one of the nicest songs I've heard in years. What a song. What a voice! Trevor Lucas then sings "The Town I Loved So Well", which sounds like "And The Band Played Waltzing Mathilda." He also does a great version of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young," which I suppose is how we will always think of him and Sandy, it has a nice guitar solo. "Gold Dust" is, again, a song that sounds a lot like Joni Mitchell. "Stranger To Himself" is an old Fairport Convention song that Sandy sings, it grinds away moodily with Gaellic menace. "Who Knows Where The Time Goes" is the well-known Fairport Convention song, here represented in a long, slow version. The last three songs were from Sandy's last concert performance, on November 27 1977.
