Sandy Denny: The Works

Rare Sandy Denny, originally uploaded by deanv41.

Rumors of the release in the UK of the 19-CD deluxe box set of all of the known recorded work of Sandy Denny, plus a trove of home recordings, demos and rare collaborations has set the grapevine buzzing. What all there is, there is, and what more could there be? It's a question i've asked myself since i first heard her in 1987 through friends in Missoula, Montana, who were themselves smitten from the first 12-string chord. This may be her decade -- a lost queen come in from the cold, guided by the North Star and so many record collectors, finally given the due she so richly deserves.
