Prog Reviewer
4 stars Fotheringay is a pleasant little project from Sandy Denny and various backing musicians, who play in a manner highly reminiscent of Denny's former berth in Fairport Convention. Unfortunately, Fotheringay were hampered by not quite having a guitarist quite as imaginative and spellbinding as Richard Thompson, but for the most part they are still able to present a competent folk rock collection that is elevated from "acceptable" to "good" by the carefully balanced vocals of Denny and Trevor Lucas.

If anything, in fact, it's Lucas who's the real find on this album, since in him Denny had found a male vocalist easily on a par with her own high standards. Ironic then, that after the dissolution of the project that Lucas (along with guitarist Jerry Donahue) would end up joining Fairport Convention! (Indeed, bassist Pat Donaldson is the only Fotheringay not to join the Fairport lineup at some point after the winding-up of this project).

Warthur | 4/5 |
