I'm sure this is an old chesnut, but then it is Xmas! Which Sandy Denny CD should I ask my family to buy me for Xmas? It must have Who Knows Where The Time Goes, of course, and The Sea.

Then obviously it has to be 'The Best of Sandy Denny - 16 of Her Greatest Recordings', which has both tracks. I've had this one for years and is fully recommended, Xmas or otherwise!

Well, another vocal performance of hers well worth hearing is "A Stranger To Himself",
and particually the version on the "Attic Tapes" CD compilation of unreleased demos,
because her voice is in much better condition here than it was for the recording of that track for Fairport Convention's RISING FOR THE MOON album,
however, I have NOT heard the demo version which has been added to the Remastered CD re-issue of RISING FOR THE MOON,
and as the track list gives it a different length than the version on ATTIC TAPES it may be a different version ...

On the ATTIC TAPES version her performance has various of the phrasing and subtle vocal inflections she is famous for, and such is not in her singing of the originally released Fairport Convention version,
but perhaps such is on the re-release added Demo version ?

Any comments from hearers of both CDs ?

Feast your ears and eyes on the 'Boxfull of Treasure' box set. Sandy needs more appreciation. It does just what it says!

Theres a CD where Sandy sings alternative tracks with some not terribly good muso she was with at the time. Someone played it for me some time ago and though her tracks are excellent, his are excruciating. Avoid this at all costs. Should have been called The lady who should have known better and the Dingbat.

I've got Boxful of Treasures and while it is excellent for converts it may not be the best choice for someone just getting into this artist. Why not try "No More Sad Refrains: The Anthology" which has most of her solo career hits. If you like that then "Unhalfbricking" or "What We Did On Our Holidays" featuring Sandy as part of Fairport Convention and another compilation "Where The Time Goes". There is also her stuff with her own band Fotheringay which is still available.
