Product Description


At the time of her death in 1978, Sandy Denny was probably still best known as the singer with Fairport Convention. However, she is held in high esteem by her peers--Judy Collins and Emmylou Harris have covered Sandy's songs, while the Bangles and Beth Orton cite her as an influence. Who Knows Where The Time Goes? provides a comprehensive overview, confirming Sandy as arguably the finest female singer/songwriter Britain has produced. This collection spans Sandy's whole career, from the early folk club days right up to the never-before-heard home demos, as well as including a number of live and previously unreleased performances from Sandy's short--but enormously influential--spell with Fairport.

Sandy won the prestigious Melody Maker Best Female Vocalist award two years running but, intriguingly, when she left Fairport in 1969, she chose not to pursue the solo career which so obviously beckoned. Instead, as the 70s dawned, she recorded a duet with Robert Plant on Led Zeppelin IV and won her only gold record as part of the star-studded stage production of the Who's Tommy. After that, Sandy formed Fotheringay. The band only stayed together long enough to record the one eponymous album, but Who Knows Where The Time Goes? collects together tracks from the aborted second album, as well as some unreleased live cuts from the band.

When Sandy finally did begin a solo career she drew on a deep well of influences, including the impressive traditional repertoire she had gathered while playing the folk clubs as a teenager. She was also a fan of 50s rock & roll and Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee" is here, together with her cover of the Everly Brothers "When Will I Be Loved". With such immaculate taste in covers, it is easy to overlook the fact that Sandy Denny was also an impeccable songwriter in her own right and songs such as "Listen, Listen", "Solo" and "For Shame Of Doing Wrong" are ample proof of that. Who Knows Where The Time Goes? testifies to the great lost talent of Sandy Denny--a life which blazed brief but, oh, so bright. --Patrick Humphries

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Sandy Denny Collection 9 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
'Who Knows Where The Time Goes' is a 3 disc collection spanning her career. This is THE definitive collection of her work, and a perfect way to introduce someone to the amazing talent that she had. If you don't own any Sandy get this first; it showcases a range of work and will help you work out where to go next.
If you buy other albums you'll hear some brilliant tracks that aren't on this album, but the best really has been distilled to this set. I own copies of her work with Fairport, the Strawbs, and her solo work, but this box set is the one that first showed me just how good she was, and I come back to it time and again.
I am convinced that if she were still alive today she'd be a megastar, outperforming the likes of Celine Dion and Madonna with her natural, empathic, mind blowing talent.
Buy It.

By Scott T Mc Nally - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sandy remains in my mind, nearly as influential as Joni Mitchell. She wrote her own wonderfull material, as well as doing incredible interpretations of traditional folk songs of the British Isles. She could also rock with the best of them, though she rarely did. There are quite a few tracks here that I hadn't heard prior to listening to this. Some are somewhat muddy sounding live recordings and yes, there are a few tracks that seem conspicuously absent, but these are minor qualms. I have to agree that she possessed one of those rare voices that could send shivers up your spine. "Now And Then" is a prime example of the way another reviewer descibed her ability to adorn her vocal phrasing with such difficult ornaments, and yet make it sound as nartual as breathing itself. She had the abilty to convey sadness with an inner strength like nobody ever did before or has been able to do since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gone Much Too Soon, But Hardly Forgotten... 10 Mar 2000
By Michael Weber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are songs on this set that will freeze your heart with their beauty and sadness.
I remember sitting in a laundromat in 1978, reading a music magazine, and suddenly seeing the unbelievable news that Sandy Denny was dead.
There are performances on this set that will cause you to reevaluate and redefine the way you think about folk music.
I remember standing in a light drizzle next to Sandy's grave in 1990, with one of these 3 CDs playing "Take Away the Load" (recorded by Fairport Convention as "Sandy's Song") in myheadphones as i thought about what a loss we had suffered when she left us, and tears mixed with the raindrops on my cheeks.
This set covers aspects of Sandy's entire, sadly short career, and shows us many sides of her talent as singer and writer; lets us hear again her beautiful voice and sure-handed interpretations of her own material and other songs, both traditional and contemporary.
This is not exactly the set that i would have compiled, as it omits a couple of pieces -- Dylan's "Percy's Song" with Fairport and the title song from her last album with Fairport "Rising for the Moon", particularly -- but it is still an excellent selection and value for the money.
If you remember Sandy, you know you need this set.
If you're too young to remember Sandy (has it really been 22 years?), but you are a fan of British folk and folk/rock, i'm telling you you need this set.
And if you just like beautiful vocals and haunting songs, then you probably need this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sandy, Earthangel 5 Nov 2000
By J. Farrelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While many will remember her as the soaring voice in Led Zep's "Battle of Evermore" (which was my unexpected introduction to her as well), Sandy Denny's best works were in her self-penned songs. This is the very best compilation of her work and at a very good price. A voice of truly timeless beauty...

5.0 out of 5 stars Will never be forgotten 29 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Having listened once again to this instantly recognizable voice, feeling the shivers up and down the spine, it becomes obvious: Excellent female vocalists abound, singing excellent songs. But there was only one Sandy Denny. And the expression she formed, well documented in this compilation, sounds stronger, deeper and more relevant now than ever. All this talk about morbid death cults of Sandy Denny and Nick Drake misses the mark: They were, and are, irreplacable. Deeply missed - all the more privileged we are to have a documentation of what we lost in Sandy Denny, and the opportunity to let this voice tug at heart strings, over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time goes...but this is timeless in its beauty 2 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sandy was a great artist, both with Fairport Convention and on her own. Though some of her solo work did not measure up to her greatest moments with Fairport, there is still an embarrassment of riches to be found in this box set. Simply one of the most beautiful, evocative voices to be found anywhere.
