5 stars My ALL-TIME Greatest #9

I have to confess my partiality right from the start ' I grew up listening repeatedly to this wonderful music and it grew up in me to the point I became addicted to Sandy's voice up to this day.

Unfortunately when finally got the chance to see the band live in'79 she was no longer with them nor alive, having sadly departed the year before.

Global Appraisal

I love FP early days work and I LOVE all Sandy Denny has done as a singer/songwriter, not only her voice; nothing too strange then that I value so high this major album where these talents so effectively but briefly came together (it would be the last of 3 albums SD stayed with FP, just before going solo and being voted 2 years in a row Best Female Singer by the MM readers).


The interplay of Dave Swarbrick's violin, Richard Thompson guitars and the exceptional voice of Sandy is the driving force behind the whole dynamics of this folk-rock combo, only two years after the inception but already with 4 albums under their belt.

On this one they perform a majority of traditional british folk songs.
