Format: Audio CD
In his highly acclaimed book Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain's Visionary Music, the music writer Rob Young identifies the late, self-destructive female singer-songwriter, as one of the key figures in 20th century British folk rock, alongside the likes of Pentangle, Nick Drake, and the Incredible String Band. He makes this judgement because of her work in the late 1960s and 1970s as firstly, lead singer for the folk rock band Fairport Convention, then as part of her own short-lived band, Fotheringay, before embarking on a solo career that produced 4 studio albums between 1971 and 1977 (The North Star Grassman and the Ravens, Sandy, Like an Old Fashioned Waltz, and Rendezvous). This budget-priced CD focusses solely on that latter phase of her career.

It begins that task well, with a 1973 take on her best-known song, the wistful 'Who Knows Where The Time Goes?'. That much-covered effort is followed by a reasonable proportion of the best songs in her back-catalogue, including: 'Late November', 'Next Time Around', 'Solo', 'No End', 'I'm A Dreamer', and 'The Lady'. Also included amongst the 15 song track-listing are the traditional 'Blackwaterside', and her version of former colleague Richard Thompson's 'I Wish I Was A Fool For You (Again)', which both convincingly show off her talents as a skilful interpreter of other people's material. Hearing all this generally understated folk-rock - with it poignant lyrics, sympathetic musical arrangements, and Denny's haunting vocal performances - provides a reminder of why esteemed artists such as Robert Plant, Kate Bush and Pete Townshend have doffed their caps to her in the past, and hip contemporary acts like Laura Marling, Joanna Newsom, and Joan As Policeman, have cited her as an influence on their own work.

This is a good compilation of some of The Lady's best known songs at an excellent price. The sound quality is fine.

Many great tracks here. If you're a fan or been recommended by a friend, then this is a great place to start. A great version of "Who knows". Worth it just for that!

I came to this album only knowing 'Who knows where the time goes' but it was a real eye opener for me and I will definitely invest in other Sandy Denny CDs after hearing this.
There are a lot of real winners on this, in contrast to the usual rule of thumb on compilations, many of them towards the end of the album. In fact, one of the few disappointments was 'who knows where the time goes', here sung in a 'free' live version which is certainly not an improvement on the fairport era studio version that I - and no doubt many others - already knew and loved before I bought this. The other is All our days, which comes in at over 7 minutes long and has more orchestral interlude than Sandy singing. Just about everything else is highly recommended though - personal favourites, 'John the Gun' and, best of all, the neo-psychedelic 'I wish I was a fool for you (again)'.

Sandy's content and interpretation never falls below brilliant. Already got most of these tracks but a couple of new ones to e. I'll play t the car. If you're familiar with Sandy's work you won't need to read this, if you're not then you've really missed out
