Great Sandy Denny record! UK 1971 original pressing still in nice glossy shape with both labels intact with some light surface marks which do not affect the overall play. Gatefold sleeve is still in pretty solid shape with only some light corner wear and some really faint ring wear on cover.

A proper record shop classic from pre-eminent Folk star Sandy Denny! Hitting differently on this UK Island original, the early 70's acid-folk catalogue was a brighter place with this milestone recording. Having already contributed lasting magic with Fairport Convention and Fotheringay, this cemented her songwriting legacy, including staff favourites 'Next Time Around' and 'Crazy Lady Blues'
