Sandy is the second solo album by British folk rock musician Sandy Denny. The album was released in 1972 and begun just a fortnight after her UK tour promoting her debut solo album, The North Star Grassman and the Ravens, ended in early November 1971.
For anybody unfamiliar with Sandy Denny’s yearning, evocative songs, her teeteringly vulnerable vocal style and the erratic contours of a career that ended shockingly in a fall downstairs in 1978 when she was 31, this eye-watering project may seem like ludicrous indulgence. This is not even the first box set in her name – the excellent five-CD A Boxful of Treasures came out in 2004. But when you consider compiler Andrew Batt has not only assembled everything she commercially recorded, but 100 previously unreleased tracks, you get a measure of the extraordinary exhaustiveness of the project.
Sandy Denny (6 January 1947 – 21 April 1978), born Alexandra Elene Maclean Denny, was a British singer and songwriter who has been described as the pre-eminent British folk rock singer. Sandy is considered a founder of the British folk rock movement and perhaps its most important female singer, songwriter and personality. Over a brief career spanning just thirteen years, she left an extensive legacy. These songs were collected on the 1970 album It’s Sandy Denny where the tracks from Sandy and Johnny had been re-recorded. The complete Saga studio recordings were re-issued on the 2005 compilation Where The Time Goes. By mid-1967 Sandy had abandoned her studies at art college and was devoting herself full-time to music.
Alexandra Elene MacLean Denny (6 January 1947 – 21 April 1978) was an English singer-songwriter who was lead singer of the British folk rock band Fairport Convention.
