It'll Take a Long Time
by Sandy Denny
Sandy Denny was an English folk giant who fronted traditional and contemporary roots group Fairport Convention from 1968 to 1969 (the group also included Richard Thompson, still a major figure in folk and rock music) before forming similar outfit Fotheringay prior to a solo career starting in 1971. Denny recorded four solo albums before her 1978 accidental death at age 31, but with her groups and solo concert, radio session, and other non-commercial recordings her discography is voluminous. I learned of her sometime in the mid-'90s when I blind-bought her four-LP career-spanning box Who Knows Where the Time Goes?, an essential collection for those interested in English contemporary folk or singer-songwriters.

Denny comes and goes on my radar, and she's most recently there because I've been waiting to get in my stack to I've Always Kept a Unicorn, a 2016 two-disc compilation of Denny's acoustic recordings, as well as Mick Houghton's 2015 Denny biography of the same title. I get through my musical acquisitions in a complicated, scheduled way, so before I reach that set I've been listening to her second solo album, 1972's Sandy. I've chosen the opening track, which I've spent some time playing on repeat during the last week. It's one of her most beautiful solo recordings.
