In this era of female singers , we are bombarded by the ten a penny clones , many of who are wrongly regarded as " special talents " by virtue of hype and slick marketing by those representing them . Sandy Denny was an exceptional talent ; a singer par excellence , who sadly never got the overall recognition, the plaudits and the rewards that she so richly deserved. Today , she would have been a superstar.

This is one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs and performances ever.  Just beyond comprehension.  Timeless.

Sandy Denny is the greatest female singer I've heard. End of story.
I would like to go back to 1970 - just for a day. Would someone please arrange it.

I'm incapable of listening to this without getting a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat… how can something be so sorrowful and yet so blissfully beautiful at the same time?

Miss you, Sandy.

what was the most gorgeous? The song? The English countryside? or Sandy? All three. This song grips the heart hard in inward pain but also comforts at the same times. a masterpiece by Thompson, i belive based on the death of his girlfriend in a horrific crash thta also killed a bandmember.

I grew up in Florida and Bama and became addicted to music from this period ages ago, ah but then in my 30's I kept digging and when I heard this woman's voice, it stopped me in my tracks, so haunting, , and Richard Thompson's playing with her is so fine, love the sound of his Strat.  REALLY love Sandy's solo stuff and Fortheringay too.
