Thread Name: Sandy Denny Documentary
Subject: RE: Sandy Denny Documentary
This video is available through spectrum music video on the east coast. their phone number is 1800 84 music the price is about 20 dollars and only features stills of her with the band and amature footage (with good sound) of a live performance of the tune "solo" during her late seventies return to Fairport. Sandy and her music means everything to me and she speaks to me like no one else can. I'd be very interested in seeing the documentary that you're putting together, as for myself I've always had this foolish yet none the less romantic idea for a full length feature on her life, from those first piano lessons (where she played only by ear), through the folk circuit and to the wonderful yet short career we all know and love her for. (see the movie "melanie", that is where some of the inspiration for the screenplay in my head came from) give me a call at (408) 378 1709 to let me know of your progress on not only the documentary but on finding the tape. if all else fails, I'd be happy to send a hi fi copy of the tape to you, free of charge.
