That feeling of bittersweetness that accompanies long distance often carries me back to this haunting but lovely song.
Fairport Convention was one of the most innovative and influential 1960s British bands and still record and tour today. The lead singer during their greatest period was Sandy Denny. Perhaps the greatest female vocalist of any era, the dynamic emotional range of her voice has been unsurpassed by any other singer. Thanks to Elfman101 on YouTube for posting.
