She deserves better than this.
on 11 June 2016
I've been a Fairport and Sandy Denny enthusiast for a long time so why the one star review? We have all the well known here apart from Blackwater side which is a glaring ommission.
Most of the songs are exceptional, particularly the early stuff though the sound is not great on some tracks. The problem is the random order where music just doesn't seem to have any sequencing. It just chugs on and on until it fizzles out.
Surely Farewell Farewell should have been the final track instead of being near the beginning.
All Our Days is dreadful though, drenched in strings. I never want to hear that again.
It just doesn't work as a compilation. The four disc album set was a far better retrospective. I was hoping for something to replace the loss of that but got this instead.
Pity and a lost opportunity. She deserves better than this.
