Like An Old Fashioned Waltz
denny’s intimate & moving record 1973 album sets a melancholy & personal tone, with gentle piano, rich strings, & barely a trace of her british folk roots.
with this album, sandy denny expands on the more polished moments that her previous work had suggested. ‘solo’ opens the album with a sense of apprehension & yearning, while cuts such as the beautifully vivid title track, the longing ‘at the end of the day’ & the evocative closer ‘no end’ nicely follow suit. the ink spots covers "whispering grass" & "until the real thing comes along" break the mood a bit, but it's a testament to the breadth of denny's talent that she's able to make this sort of jazz-inflected pop work for her. boasts a wealth of bonus tracks made up of demos & tv & radio performances.
