Sunday Music Corner
A week ago, I was surfing YouTube, and started looking/listening to some Richard Thompson, which reminded me about Fairport Convention and Sandy Denny's wonderful vocals. Even now when I hear her recordings I get goosebumps. Her clarity and range were amazing, but she also conveys so much emotion too. Sandy passed away in 1978 from a brain hemmorhage, taken too, too early. This particular version of this song is listed as a demo she recorded, accompanying herself on the guitar.
The very next day, I was listening to NPR in the car, and they were running a story on Sandy Denny. I took this as a Message From the Universe that I should feature her music this week. Also listen to Fairport Convention's version of "Little Musgrave" a classic folk song, their version of which is entitled "Matty Groves."
