The 16th April is Record Store Day which will see a raft of special events and free gigs taking place across the many independent record stores in the UK. One which is bound to excite many Sandy Denny fans is that Island Records and the Sandy Denny’s estate are putting together a strictly limited edition 7″ vinyl EP release which will be available for one day only.
The EP tracks were put to the vote via the official Sandy Denny Facebook page and the following tracks were chosen:
Who Knows Where The Time Goes (1st demo) disc 12 track 25
I’m a Dreamer (home demo) Disc 19 track 17
Both are taken from the new Sandy Denny Box Set which is now going for big bucks since it sold out. It is still available for download via itunes: Sandy Denny (Complete Edition) – Sandy Denny
Only 1000 copies of this single will be available for one day only at local independent retailers across the country.
As Record Day gets closer there will be more events announced so keep up via www.recordstoreday.co.uk
As many of you know we recently had a Sandy Denny week which featured many tracks featured on the boxset. We had such a great response that when we came across this full length documentary we had to share it.
This documentary film reviews the music and career one of Britains finest female vocalists and songwriters Sandy Denny. She is revered deeply amongst fans of folk music and the singer-songwriter genre, but has never received universal acclaim for her tremendous talent. This program attempts to redress this imbalance and reveal why she remains such an inspiration to so many. The features include obscure footage and rarely seen photographs, musical performances reviewed and re-assessed by a team of esteemed experts, and live and studio recordings of Sandy Denny classics, reappraised by our panel of contributors.
