Winter Winds

[Sandy Denny]

Sandy Denny sang her acoustic ballad Winter Winds in 1970 on Fotheringay’s eponymous album Fotheringay. This track was also released as the B side of their single Peace in the End. It was included in 1988 on Sandy’s box set Who Knows Where the Time Goes?, where for some reason it is noted as having been recorded in the Autumn 1970; it was actually recorded in Spring 1970.

Both a studio demo of Winter Winds, with Sandy accompanied by Trevor Lucas on guitar, and an alternate/first take of the group’s recording were included in 2015 on Fotheringay’s Universal anthology Nothing More.
