When Sandy Denny departed Fairport Convention, insisting that she wanted to concentrate upon her own songwriting rather than pursue the band's exploration of traditional English music, she never meant she also intended abandoning the folk idiom itself. Although all but two of the songs on this, her first post-Fairport project, are indeed original compositions, it is readily apparent that, like former bandmate Richard Thompson, her greatest talents lay distinctly within the same traditions as the poets and balladeers of earlier centuries, while the fact that fully one-half of Fotheringay itself would eventually join Fairport illustrates the care that went into the band's formation.

Now, this is a really surprising record; o. k. it could have been merely demos of songs which were recorded properly later on in the career of the participants, but fortunately it's more like that. All of the songs are good enough to justify this release. One could argue about the fact, that Jerry Donahue has (re-)recorded his guitar solos nearly 40 years later, but: that's nearly 40 years more of experience as a guitar player, and he's playing better than he already did in the 70s & that means a lot, as you sure all know.
