Sandy Denny formed Fotheringay after leaving Fairport Convention in 1969. The band only released one album although another album surfaced in 2008 compiled from the aborted second album recorded in the seventies. This track appeared on that second album and was an extra track on the CD release of the first album. One of the great British voices, her erratic behaviour and tragic death in 1978 shocked the folk world. The first Fotheringay album is a classic in its genre.
