There Is No Other Voice....
|Sandy Denny. 1947 - 1978
She gave us so much , with her words and her music, and we gave her
our love.Her voice will live on forever in her songs. She lives, for us, in one particular piece, written by Dave Swarbrick,
White Dress, a touching, heartfelt song, that invokes Sandy's image, so well. She left us far too soon, and the loss was and
still is, felt deeply, but, she left us an amazing legacy, that you can hear anytime you want, if you go out a purchase
the records. Do yourself a huge favour and do that, and in remembering Sandy heed the words of the song lyric below...and
No More Sad Refrains
Here comes the morning how it pleases,
It always brings me
Its golden light will wash away the dust of yesterday,
If I try it may let me forget you.
when these winter days are over,
I mean to set myself upon my feet.
I see me as something that I have never been.
And I'll pick up the pieces that will make the girl complete.
I'll be smiling all the time at everybody,
friends will tell me I'm just not the same.
I won't linger over any tragedies that were,
And I won't be singing any
more sad refrains.

Today, there is still something
stately and timeless in this pensive
reflection on life, and death -
and it’s hard to believe that
Thompson was still in his teens
when he wrote it.
As anthemic as it was then.
A Biography of Sandy Denny
Although she only spent 18 months
with the band Sandy Denny remains,
for many, the abiding voice
of Fairport Convention.
During 1969 alone,
Sandy and Fairport released
three extraordinarily accomplished
albums and the second of these
“Uhalfbricking” showcased the
definitive version of Sandy’s finest song.
