This was Sandy's first solo album after the split of Fotheringay and the band's members contribute here in varying amounts - all of them on the first track "Late November". More significant is the contribution that former Fairport Convention colleague Richard Thompson makes, and not just with his superb guitar work. He is co-producer, plays on every track (sometimes with more than one instrument) and duets vocally with Sandy on Bob Dylan's "Down in the Flood".
Sandy wrote eight of the tracks, including the magnificent "John the Gun", which features Barry Dransfield on violin. There is one traditional song, a beautiful performance of "Blackwaterside". The remaining number is the Charles Robins' song "Let's Jump the Broomstick", more usually associated with Brenda Lee, which with the Dylan song provides two rockers to balance the more pensive Denny compositions.
This is an excellent album, with a good cross-section of Sandy's styles, although for me it doesn't quite reach the heights of 'Sandy' and 'Rendezvous'.
