The Sea

[Sandy Denny]

The most successful song on Fotheringay, the sea was later to be an important lyric symbol for Sandy. This recording also appears on the Island sampler Bumpers, and on the Sandy Denny anthologies Who Knows Where the Time Goes?, The Best of Sandy Denny, No More Sad Refrains, and A Boxful of Treasures.

Sandy recorded a live version of this song at her final concert in 1977, which was released on The Attic Tracks Vol. 3 and on Gold Dust - Live at the Royalty.
