The Sandy Denny Database: The Records

Most of the information contained within The Database is in the public domain. It is based on the original Sandy Denny Database collected by No'am Newman, converted by Bryce Hall to HTML and since then expanded by Willem Doornkamp, Christian Globisch and me. Thanks to all of them for kindly allowing me to reproduce The Database.

The information presented here is believed to be accurate, even though the discography as a whole may be incomplete. I deliberately left out a bunch of Fairport Convention budget compilations. Should you discover any errors, please feel free to notify me of any omissions or errors.

I apologise for not being able to list any bootleg info. Fairport Convention's From Past Archives is a semi-official release, not a true bootleg.
