Does anyone know much about Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention? I've heard some tunes from them recently, and would like to know the best disc to get first.

Depends on what you like. Liege and Lief is considered their greatest work, and also has the most traditional material. What We Did on Our Holidays and Unhalfbricking are also great albums.

Sandy was only in the band from 1967-1969, and then again in the mid 70s. She died in 1978.

There is a new album out of Sandy Denny's work called 'A Box Full of Treasures' 5 CD box set and an accompanying booklet.

I have not bought it but it is on a wish list.

she was rather good solo, I think I liked her best with just her guitar, but that's not to dis the band. I'm afraid you gotta listen and make your own mind up about stuff - different people will like different things. Pretty good, whatever you get actually.

The 2-CD set, Sandy Denny 'No More Sad Refrains: The Anthology' A&M 314 542 748-2, is an excellent sampler.

I have a pair of her earrings - she left them in the bathroom of a mutual friend, and as they weren't his style, he gave them to me in 1982.

When we started the Coach & Horses FC in Kew, I wanted Alex Campbell to do the opening night, but the others wanted Sandy, so Sandy it was, and what a great opening night we had.

Liege & Lief.

I much preferred her singing traditional songs, she seemed to put so much more into them than into her own songs.

The 'Sandy & Johnny' LP has good songs, but the recording quality isn't up to much.

I am thinking of getting 'A Box Full of Treasures' though

All my life I've had people approach me and ask me if I knew of Sandy Denny and the Fairport Convention...after gigs...on the street. I'm embarrassed to admit that at those times I did not. After someone came to a restaurant I worked at and brought pictures and Cd's of her for me to look at and listen to..I realized why I was being asked. The physical resemblance is so startling that even my own mother asked me when I had the pictures taken. To top it all...I came to know that my favorite song of all times "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" was penned by her. (I'm one of those people that really doesn't investigate what pleases me so I am often in the dark). I'm honoured and pleased now, when people mention our resemblance both in feature and in song.

Pavane (and others): HMV have got about £10 off the Box Full of Treasures set at the moment. It could be a good time to make that purchase or mention it to a loved one that it would make a nice present for any forthcoming notable event.

I have a 3-CD anthology, SANDY DENNY: WHO KNOWS WHERE THE TIME GOES. I find most anthologies are a mix of good and not so good but this one contains the really exquisite LISTEN,LISTEN, which also features Richard Thompson on mandolin. It was on her album SANDY and I bought that one after hearing it on John Peel's radio show in the early 70's. I think I remember Peel saying that LISTEN, LISTEN was worth the cost of shelling out for a stereo system!
It all seems such a long time, now - who knows where the time...oops.

The History of Fairport Convention is a compilation of stuff they did between '68 and '72. It's a pretty good introduction and features a lot of stuff with Sandy Denny on.

"I also liked her when she was working with Johnny Silvo as Sandy & Johnny"

Did she actually work with Johnny Silvo - as I recall the Sandy and Johnny LP was tracks from them both rather than them working together. (But I stand to be corrected - memory isn't what it was)

I have the vinyl version of "Who Knows Where The Time Goes" - which (as I recall) has more on than the CD version. Other than that, Liege and Lief or Fotheringay would be good starting points.

And not only did she guest on Battle of Evermore, but she was on the very very first release of Tommy!

I must admit the first time I heard her voice was on the Zeppelin tune (albeit without knowing) which is beautiful. She matches Plant note for note! I then heard some of her on the radio, on various "Psychedelic" and "Folk" programs. I've still to hear one of her albums. Can't wait for that comp, Rumanci!
