Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a very good 16-track selection of the whole collection issued the previous year in a 3CD/DVD box set, comprising of 10 songs in the studio and 6 in concert. These recordings are very similar to her demos, simply performed with just vocal with piano or acoustic guitar, although there are two studio songs with a band. Some of these performances are better than their proper album versions as Sandy's voice isn't competing with a lot of other instruments. There are comments here regarding the sound quality - I can't imagine what these "reviewers" are listening to this with - they must have dreadful speakers. It's well known that one of the most difficult instruments to record is a grand piano, as it's sound is huge and since these songs were originally very quickly recorded for basically a once only playback on radio broadcast, don't expect Pink Floydian HDCD, SACD, DVD-A quality or any of that. However, overall the sound restoration is remarkably good and sounds excellent through my floor standing Bowers & Wilkins. From this 16-track selection there is just one that was preserved from off-air by a fan's home tape recorder - good on you that person - so there is nothing to complain about whatsoever. Essential purchase for anyone interested in the wonderful canon of artists that recorded for the Island label in the 1970's.

Yes you will have most of these Sandy classics somewhere in your collection. But her voice was never more gorgeous as on this wonderful disc.

Sandy Denny is beyond compare- that goes without saying. But I think we may be entering a period rather like with Tolkien where I fully expect to be able soon to purchase a collection of his shopping lists.
All of the tunes here are great, but the sound quality of some is poor and this really detracted from the enjoyment. I'd stick to the 3 finest Fairport albums; Fotheringay 1 and 2; her 4 solo albums and the strawbs one. Use your spare money to explore Anne Briggs or Shelagh Macdonald. This is OK, but hardly essential.

I really love Sandy'd voice, and here it is put over without any 'post production' as it's how the BBC aired it.

Phenominal stuff. Very sad she isn't here any more.

Fortunate for us there is a huge legasy of amazing stuff by her.
