5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive book on Sandy Denny?, 3 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sandy Denny: Reflections on Her Music (Paperback)
Alas, no.

But what we do have is a literary collage or mosaic. The author uses different approaches to create a portrait of Sandy and her music in a way that no chronological biography could do. Each approach weaves together like thread linking them all together; this includes the author's personal response and reaction to Sandy Denny the artist which, primarily, is the way we all approach her, by reacting in our own individual ways.

This book is simultaneously thoughtful, accessible, absorbing, and a very fine appreciation of this singer who left us too soon.

I doubt whether the definitive book on Sandy will ever be written. Her contemporaries are aging, memories fading, much has already been lost. But if publisher would like to take the chance on the coffee table book about her that she deserves, Philip Ward is the man to write it.

Philip Ward's website suggests that there is a new bio in preparation by Mick Houghton. But yes PW could do a good job too.
