This time we get to the music on this remarkable CD.
Track 1 is “Solo” (5.04), which is taken from Sandy Denny’s third “proper” solo LP, “Like An Old Fashioned Waltz”, which was released in 1973, and to which I hope to return one day. This is a perfectly acceptable version of the song, and a good opener.
Track 2 is “Hexamshire Lass” (2.35), the splendid rollicking romp from “Nine”, and again this is a very good live rendition.
Track 3 is “John The Gun” (5.12), which is from Sandy Denny’s first “proper” album “The North Star Grassman and The Ravens” [see above under “Glimpses of Hope”]. This is not one of my favourites, but here Sandy Denny belts it out with immense confidence, and I have to say that it does come over fairly well.
Track 4 is an instrumental called “Fiddlestix” (2.46), which is from “Nine”, and is a note perfect copy of the studio track.
Track 5 is another instrumental, “Dirty Linen” (4.07), a tune originally on “Full House” [see above]. Obviously we have different guitarists here, so the sound is a little different, but again this is a perfect live version.
More next time.
