Barbara Dickson's sleeve notes on Who Knows Where the Time Goes?:
“Sandy Denny was a great singer and very appreciated until her untimely death. This song is probably her best known and has a truly timeless quality which I hope we have preserved. Troy Donockley's Uileann pipes are particularly suited to the feeling of the lyric.”
