General comments:

The Strawbs were a folk/rock group very much of their time (late '60s). Sandy Denny is a key figure in English folk/rock and in English electric folk and later was a member of Fairport Convention, Fotheringay, and did solo work. Very pleasant listening. (Neile)

Comments:

These tracks were recorded in 1967, around the same time as the material that became The Original Sandy Denny, but was not released until 1973, and was re-released in 1991. They mostly sing Dave Cousin's songs, though they do one of Sandy Denny's best songs, "Who Knows Where The Time Goes". Enjoyable, especially for Sandy Denny fans. There are other discs of hers I'd get before it, but it's definitely worthwhile for a fan or for someone who likes the folkpop of the period. (Neile)

Strawberry Music Sampler No. 1

Release info:

2001—Old School Songs—WC CD 2001

Availability:

Unknown

Ecto priority:

Recommended for Sandy Denny and Strawbs fans

Group members:

Sandy Denny—vocals, guitar
Dave Cousins—vocals, guitar
Tony Hooper—vocals, guitars
Ron Chesterman—bass

Comments:

This was originally a limited-edition publishing demo, and it includes previously unrealeased outtakes from the abandoned first Straws album. While it would be hard to consider this essential, Sandy Denny fanatics (ahem, like me) will find it an interesting addition to their collections. Sandy only appears on the few songs, but they are fascinating versions. (Neile)
