Artist: FOTHERINGAY
Title: BBC Live in 1970
Format: LP
Label: B13
Country: Russian Federation
Price: $29.00
"140 gram LP clear vinyl in clear PVC sleeve (ltd. ed. 500 copies). After her legendary tenure with Fairport Convention came to an end in 1969 (during which time she was voted Britains best singer), Sandy Denny, along with Trevor Lucas (of Eclection), decided to put together a new band. In early 1970 Fotheringay, named after a FC song (and featuring the talents of Jerry Donahue and Pat Donaldson), was born. Despite rave reviews along with the release of one excellent album for Island that same year, the band quickly fell apart due to personal reasons. These BBC sessions, recorded in April and November of 1970--and featuring amazing versions of songs like The Sea and The Ballad of Ned Kelly, from their self-titled studio album, as well as versions of songs like Eppie Moray and John The Gun, that were works in progress at the time--are a welcome compendium to their repertoire." -B13.

Artist: FOTHERINGAY
Title: 2
Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"This is what would have been -- and now IS -- the second release for UK folk-rock legends Fotheringay, including all members Sandy Denny, Pat Donaldson, Trevor Lucas, Gerry Conway, and Jerry Donahue. These are the original recordings from 1970. Fotheringay remain one of the great might-have-beens of British music. They lasted less than a year, and released just one album, but their disappearance robbed the early 70s scene of a group of musicians capable of taking folk-rock to new heights of subtlety and musicianship. Now, the nine songs on that debut album; assumed for almost four decades to be their sole testament, are joined by the eleven that would have constituted a follow-up. Sadly, they broke up during the recording sessions for their second album. Incredibly, all the tapes survived in various record company archives. Thirty-eight years later, the surviving members of the group have mixed all the material to finally complete this remarkable album. When originally released, the debut album went straight into the Top Twenty in both Melody Maker and NME, and is now an acknowledged classic recording of British folk-rock. It is very, very rare that musicians get the chance to complete a project begun 38 years earlier. The second Fotheringay album has been eagerly awaited by all fans of Sandy Denny, British folk-rock, and by pretty much everyone in general." - Fledgling

Artist: FOTHERINGAY
Title: Fotheringay
Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $15.50
"New reissue of one of the highest regarded British folk-rock albums, featuring Sandy Denny. Originally issued by Island in 1970 (previous Hannibal CD long o/p). With additional artwork and bonus tracks." - FE. "Fotheringays beautiful debut album was recorded in 1970, and has long been regarded as one of the greatest achievements of British folk-rock. Sandy Denny, Trevor Lucas, Jerry Donahue, Pat Donaldson and Gerry Conway created a magical ensemble sound and one of the finest albums of Sandys career. It has been out of print for sometime. For this carefully remastered edition Fledgling have restored all of the original artwork and added four bonus tracks -- performances recorded at the 1970 Rotterdam Festival. Remastering approved by original producer Joe Boyd." - Fledgling.

Artist: FOTHERINGAY
Title: Essen 1970
Format: LP
Label: Thors Hammer
Country: Germany
Price: $33.00
"Fotheringay was the legendary English folk group around singer Sandy Denny who died a long time ago. She had become well-known with the groups Strawbs and Fairport Convention and was elected best British singer several times. At the end of 1969, she founded Fotheringay together with four friends. They could immediately sign a contract with the Island label. On Friday, 23rd October 1970, they had a gig at the third Essen Pop & Blues festival in the Gruga Hall. The concert was then recorded semi-professionally by the host. Now, the tapes have been elaborately re-mastered by Fotheringay guitarist Jerry Donahue who got the most out of the sound that was technically possible. LP in gatefold cover (with an LP-sized eight-page booklet in colour)." -Thors Hammer
