Listen Listen: An Introduction to Sandy Denny
Island Records IMCD 253 (CD, UK, June 1999)
This is the new Sandy Denny compilation in the Island Records' “An Introduction to” series. It has 17 tracks all taken from her four Island solo albums, so it's a good companion to the new Island Records' Fairport compilations Meet on the Ledge - The Classic Years 1967-1975 and What We Did on Our Holidays - An Introduction to Fairport Convention.
All tracks are of excellent quality. There is no rare or previously unreleased material even if the sleeve notes credit the non-existent track 18 to Elford/Fraser; it seems that either Man of Iron or Here in Silence have been thrown out in the last minute.
The sleeve notes are by Patrick Humphries. The booklet pictures have appeared before in the 3 CD set from Hannibal.
